This section will provide you with all the necessary information on the host city, the event venue and recommended hotels in Estoril, Portugal.


The Host City - Estoril

A former traditional fishing village, Cascais on the Estoril coast went through an important period of development in the 14th century, when it became a major stop-off point for boats on their way to Lisbon, turning it into a very busy port at that time.

The Estoril coast offers fascinating beaches from Tamariz beach, where Casino Estoril, the largest casino in Europe, is located, to Conceição beach or the Bay of Cascais, just to name a few. For those who want to dive into the cultural and famous architectural side of Estoril, there is much to discover as well. Starting from the Palace of the Dukes of Palmela, built in the 20th century at Conceição beach, to the Town Hall, also a former residence of the Counts of Guarda, to the Tower of São Sebastião.

Cascais definitely has a lot more to offer than just its picturesque beaches, so let's start exploring!


Venue - Congress Estoril (ECC)

Situated on the Estoril coast, the venue finds itself in a privileged location, just 25 km away from Lisbon airport and right next to the famous Casino with its surrounding gardens and sea view.

The Estoril Congress Center is the ideal venue for all types of corporate, institutional, cultural and social events. Opened in 2001, the ECC offers a rare architectural symbiosis of high outside-facing glass walls, woods and concrete structures, bathed in natural light. Designed by the architecture firm, Regino Cruz Arquitectos, it won the "Excellence in Innovation and Quality Architecture Prize" and the "Best Tourism Development" award.


Estoril Congress Center consists of an Auditorium seating 573 people in an amphitheatre equipped with 6 translation booths. It has 22 modular rooms with a capacity of 300 people, a foyer providing an entrance to the Auditorium and a direct view over the Casino gardens.

The ECC can easily be accessed on foot, and also offers spacious parking for vehicles for people with reduced mobility. It is the only venue in Portugal with EarthCheck’s Green Venue certification. Renting space at the ECC automatically generates the allocation of a Green Fund, to the amount of 1% of the rental price.




One of the accommodation highlights around the ECC is the Palácio Estoril Hotel & Golf, it is a five-star hotel equipped with a golf course and a Wellness Center. The hotel is only two minutes (walking) away from the Estoril Convention Center.

We have special rates at the Palácio Estoril Hotel, which are 220€ for a double room incl. breakfast.
