Lisbon always offers something special to it’s visitors and dispiting the many descriptions you have read, you will only know if Lisbon is yours once you have arrived here. We will share the climate, colors, gastronomy, history, diverse culture life and the breathtaking landscape in the surroundings of your visit.
As ‘O Observador’ said, “Lisbon itself changed, phoenix-like, into a more modern and colorful city”. Lisbon is an historic capital, a potpourri of unusual character and charm, where 800 years of cultural influences mingle with modern trends and lifestyles creating spectacular contrasts.
LOOKING FOR A COOL
PLACE TO STAY?
WE CAN HELP YOU.
FIND OUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
PWG has appointed Leading as its official agency for hotel reservations.
As Lisbon is a highly popular tourist destination Leading has pre-blocked a limited number of rooms in different price categories.
Due to the high demand for accommodation, we strongly recommend you to book your hotel accommodation as early as possible. Rooms will be allocated on a first come – first served basis.
You can book your hotel when registering online for the event. However, you can come back later to your personal registration area to reserve the hotel of your choice.
In both cases you will be able to book and pay online. A confirmation letter will be sent at your attention.
Requests for more than 10 rooms are handled separately and proposals are made on request. Please make your request online (coming soon) or contact Leading Your Congress Organiser by email to email@example.com
We will do our best to send you a proposal corresponding as much as possible to your needs.
