Connections Meetings Portugal

We did it! We launched the first designed meeting, called Connections Meetings, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Lisbon and the Conrad Algarve in Portugal.

At the inaugural Connections event professionals from across Europe participated in an interactive sessions about improving meeting design with Mike van der Vijver and experienced meeting design in practice.

We were hosted by these stunning venues: Museu de Cerveja and Palácio Foz in Lisbon; Conrad Algarve and Bovino Steakhouse in Quinta do Lago.

Instead of sitting in the hotel ballroom at an assigned table, our buyers and suppliers are encouraged to create memorable experiences through activities.
