The International Conference on Phenomena in Ionized Gases will be held in the Estoril Congress Centre, from 9 to 14 of July 2017, in one of the most pleasant areas surrounding Lisbon, where attending a conference becomes a lifetime experience. The venue offers an atmosphere both relaxed and sophisticated, due to the combination of a mild sunny climate near the sea, excellent food, a beautiful landscape and modern, ample and well-equipped facilities.
THE ESTORIL CONGRESS CENTER
Opened in 2001 and winner of the “Excellency in innovation and Architecture Quality Prize” and “Best Tourism Development”, the Estoril Congress Center is located on a very prominent tourist site known as the Estoril Coast, next to the famous Casino, surrounded by gardens and sea views. The site is a 25 km drive from the Lisbon airport.
The Estoril Congress Center has been designed to host a variety of events. Its functionality and modern technological equipment allow it to adapt to specific requirements, as well as the simultaneous holding of different activities. The Estoril Congress Center is the only space certified as a Green Venue in Portugal for its commitment to green practices and sustainable business.
