Our venue - Congress Center Estoril

The Estoril Congress Center boasts a privileged location on the Estoril coast, 25 km away from Lisbon airport, and right next to the famous Casino with its surrounding gardens and sea view.

Opened in 2001, designed by the architecture firm Regino Cruz Arquitectos, the ECC offers a rare architectural symbiosis of high outside-facing glass walls, wood and concrete structures, bathed in natural light, having 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.
