ASSOCIAÇAO DE TURISMO DE LISBOA - VISITORS & CONVENTION BUREAU
The Turismo de Lisboa is a non-profit organization, established through an alliance of public and private bodies, which operate in the tourist sector. It has now around 550 associated members. The main objective of this association since 1998 is to combine efforts, in order to improve and further the promotion of Lisboa as a tourist destination, and thus to improve the quality and competitiveness of the city. The Association’s activities also include the creation of various tourist projects, as a result of private initiatives or in partnership with other entities. The Turismo de Lisboa is divided into two sections: the Visitors Bureau and the Convention Bureau. Both share the overall objectives of the Association, but each aims to promote the city amongst different segments of the market. The city of Lisboa and Lisboa Coast, have all the natural resources and the adequate facilities for staging either a leisure journey or the most successful congress, conference or incentive events all year round.
