Regardless of whether your conference delegates and incentive participants are looking for a chance to unwind, a flutter at the tables, the opportunity to rub shoulders with the beautiful people or just let their hair down, the Algarve has something for everyone.
Albufeira, Praia da Rocha, Portimao, Tavira, Alvor, Lagos, Vilamoura and Faro are among the many Algarve towns and resorts with a fantastic selection of bars, clubs, restaurants and live entertainment venues.
For sunset cocktails in glamorous surroundings, head for the Nikki Beach beach clubs at Vilamoura or Portimao, where after a gruelling session in the conference room your delegates can unwind by lounging around, jet-set style, on huge white cushions under Arabian tents as they enjoy al fresco dining or sipping something long, cool and preferably alcoholic.
Or organise dine-arounds in a variety of locations. There are dining options in the Algarve to suit every taste, serving a variety of Portuguese and international cuisine, ranging from small, friendly local restaurants and cafes to trendy beach bars, stylish ocean-view restaurants, sumptuous golf clubhouses and Michelin-starred establishments.
Algarvean cuisine is characterised by superb fresh fish and seafood from the Atlantic as well as meat and game dishes from the countryside, and combines traditional home cooking with the influences of the region's Moorish heritage and those of the former Portuguese colonies in the New World.
After dinner, why not round-off the evening with drinks and dancing at one of the Algarve's many bars or clubs, or a visit to the tables?
Vilamoura, Praia da Rocha and Monte Gordo all have casinos, with regularly-changing evening entertainment and a choice of gambling options, including roulette, poker, blackjack and slot machines. Gala dinners can also be held at each of the venues, either as part of the set show programme or as private events, and casino evenings are always popular with off-duty delegates seeking the thrill of placing a bet.
