The venue has been carefully selected to fit the event, to house the educational activities and to enhance the educational content of the Conference. We worked closely with the Convention Bureau in Portugal, but found that there are limited venues that could meet the requirements for the conference due to the increasing delegate numbers, budget constraints and date availability. All venues were of a similar standard.
Cascais is located on the West Coast of Portugal just 30 minutes from Lisbon. Once a sleepy fishing village Cascais is now a summertime playground with plenty to keep you occupied. Its trio of golden bays will give you plenty of sand to relax in the sun, whilst listening to the waves lapping at the shore.
Not a sun worshipper? Don't worry there's still plenty to keep you occupied with museums, gardens and a marina to explore along with old streets dotted with designer boutiques. Make sure you try the fresh seafood at the alresco fish restaurants and have a dance in one of the lively bars that come to life after dark.
Fancy something more adventurous? Cascais is also a great surfing spot, so dust off that board and try out your moves.
