Corporate meetings in São Paulo
Sao Paulo is undoubtedly the pulsing heart of Brazil’s commerce with 80% international corporations based in the city or state. It is the South American business capital and has the infrastructure to support meetings and conventions of all shapes and sizes. The city has a wide range of venues, convention centres and exhibition halls. The city is a hub for both international and domestic flights making it the ideal starting point to explore the rest of Brazil.
Incentive travel programmes in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro has long been a favourite for incentive travel programmes with its famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema; iconic landmarks such as Sugarloaf and Corcovado mountains; the wonders of Carnival and the iconic football at the Maracanã stadium. Rio can also be combined with a trip to the spectacular Iguassu Falls on the border with Argentina and Paraguay and a trip to beautiful Salvador or another coastal resort for a truly once in a lifetime experience.
