Sheraton Porto Hotel Congress Centre

To host NIDCAP - Open Day Conference was selected a beautiful, modern and transparent building that was lifted on the business area of Boavista.

The venue offers 1750 square meters of total multifunction meeting space, which includes one 945 square meters meeting room, additional seven conference rooms, and eight convertible suites in a wireless environment. The business centre can also accommodate all the event needs. Enjoy the comfort and privacy of the hotel and connect with family and friends over fine dining and a "show cooking" concept with Portuguese and international flair at restaurant Porto Novo. Or if you'd rather spend a mellow evening in the company of other participants networking, stop by the piano bar or cocktail lounge with live music in the evenings.

We look forward to making your stay comfortable and convenient at the Sheraton Porto Hotel fulfilling all your needs.
