Lisbon is a popular conference destination and many of our guests are involved in conference activities, either as attendees or presenters.
Where are the main Conference Centers in Lisbon?
The two most popular Lisbon conference centers are both located near the Tejo River, as you can see on the Google map, below. The Lisbon Congress Centre (Centro de Congressos de Lisboa) is on the western side of town, in Belém. The FIL Exhibition Center (FIL – Feira Internacional de Lisboa) on the eastern end of the city, in the Park of the Nations/Expo area.
Several universities also host conferences, especially the University of Lisbon (UL) and the New University of Lisbon (UNL).
And where are our houses?
Our corporate apartments are right in the center of Lisbon–marked by the sun in the middle of the map. They are close to the main tourist attractions and an easy metro (or taxi, or tram, as you prefer) ride from any of the conference centers.
