PAMPILHOSA DA SERRA IS THE BTL 2018 GUEST MUNICIPALITY
Pampilhosa da Serra is the guest municipality of the 30th edition of BTL – Lisbon Travel Market. BTL, the largest Tourism event held in Portugal, will take place at FIL, Parque das Nações, from February 28th to March 4th.
Pampilhosa da Serra is a village in the District of Coimbra, located in the central region of the country. In recent years, this region has witnessed a growing demand for national and international tourists and consequently a diversification of tourist attractions and infrastructures. In a year in which the region was adversely affected by fires (which devastated large forest areas and materials), Pampilhosa da Serra is committed to make this territory known, to revealing its beauty and natural charms, its history and the resilience of its people.
José Alberto Dias, Mayor of Pampilhosa da Serra, highlights “it was with great satisfaction that the Municipality of Pampilhosa da Serra accepted BTL’s invitation to be the guest Municipality of the 2018 edition. After a year of great setbacks, our presence at the Lisbon Travel Market is an excellent opportunity to promote the Municipality’s image and attractions at the biggest fair of the sector in our country.
Fátima Vila Maior, Director of trade fairs at FIL and BTL Coordinator, says that “the attribution of BTL Guest Municipality 2018 to Pampilhosa da Serra, commends the dedication, strength and excellent work developed by the Municipality in reconstructing the area and in promoting the destination based on its natural, historical and cultural offer. On the other hand, we also want its presence in this edition of BTL to stimulate companies and operators to invest more and better in a unique region of our country.”
