Oranizing your event in Portugal with Go Discover Portugal

Indoor or outdoor event

Will your event be indoor or outdoor? Depending on group size events can be organized indoor or outdoor, the larger the event the more likely it will be that you will need permission and a license to conduct your event outdoor, this means planning on time. There are many event locations, fully licensed that have the possibility of combining outdoor and indoor, you can also choose private beaches or farms.
Portugal is the warmest country in Europe and from half May to half September the weather is generally sunny and dry, the other months are unpredictable but likely to be warm and dry. January to April are the months with the highest risk of rain showers and certain periods of heavy rain.

Where in Portugal

Portugal has 3 main airports, Porto, Lisbon and Faro, all providing budget flights as well as executive class flights.
For short events and stays in Portugal it could be a good choice to organize your events close to the main cities or there where the infra structures allow for easy access. Advisable is to use a private transfer service as these are the most comfortable and cheapest way to travel, when travelling in a group.

If you are planning to stay a bit longer you could choose to travel to more remote locations for a unique Portuguese experience or a more private atmosphere.

The best road networks are found in Central Portugal, In the Leiria and Santarem districts, South of Lisbon, in direction Troia and Arrabida, In the North between Porto, Braga and Braganca and south in the Algarve close to the coast.
When you plan your event in more remote locations, you need to inform about transit times.

Type of Event

Wedding or private party, offsite events, hen and bachelor parties, team building, corporate meetings, school and youth trips. Each type of event has its own character and requirements. Portugal caters perfectly for each type and has a very large offer that will fit perfectly.

Group composition

What type of people does your group compose of? This is an important aspect when planning activities.
Size of the group is very important when it comes to activities, a lot of the companies in Portugal that provide extreme or outdoor activities are small and have limited capacity. Some may not conduct their activities in large groups due to Portugal’s strict environmental regulations or safety issues. In certain cases we combine providers to be able to cater to large groups, in other situations we combine activities and split a large group into smaller groups.

Congress or meeting

Some of the best congress centres of the world are located in Portugal and many hotels have event rooms available for small to very large groups.

Wedding or private celebrations

Portugal’s offer is very divers, luxury travel is inherited from the times the kings and queens ruled Portugal and royalty from all over Europe would visit the country. In current times many of the former palaces have been turned into first class luxury hotels. Eco tourism wine and farm manor houses have opened their doors to accommodate welcome guests, many set in amazing vineyard landscapes, close to beaches, rivers and with access to the most breathtaking views.
