It is my pleasure to welcome you all to this centenary and vibrant city, to experience a real living heritage,

Diogo Assis | events by tlc CEO & Founder

one that regenerates and reinvents itself, whilst maintaining its core character, grounded in granite and, thus, unshakeable. Porto has all the right ingredients for a successful conference, meeting or incentive programme with an interesting mix of modern and historic venues.
Porto is one of the most charismatic cities and oldest visitor destinations in Europe.  The city is blessed with heritage, breath-taking views, a modern 21st Century infrastructure and culture, making it  desirable for MICE planners and organizers.
The city unfolds along the river bank and the sea shore, revealing charming vistas, inviting venues and all the pleasures of the outdoors, framed by its green spaces. But setting out to discover Porto one is met with surprise after surprise.  Maintaining its welcoming and conservative nature, the city  is also a juxtapose of contemporary and creative with its World Cultural Heritage Historical Centre.
The famous Port wine is present in the city in a multitude of forms and sensations from wine or gourmet shops, to guided tasting tours in one of the wine cellars among the casks and mashing tubs; to a stay at a wine hotel and a relaxing moment in a spa. Whatever you choose to do, Porto allows one to be carried away by their senses.
The city offers a world-class meetings and incentives infrastructure.  From its award-winning airport with direct flights from Europe, the USA and South America;  four and 5-star hotels to cater for discerning incentive travel buyers and meetings planners and fabulous historical venues for gala and recognition events.
Further afield is the Douro Valley with its terraced vineyards, offering the creation of tailored made activities on water and land.
I look forward to welcoming you to Porto.
