António Padeira, director of Turismo de Portugal, said: “This is a very exciting event for Portugal as it is providing us with a unique opportunity to showcase our country as a stand-out luxury adventure destination.

“Working in collaboration with Connections will open up a wealth of opportunities for us in adventure tourism as, until now, the Azores remains something of a hidden gem.”

Micaela Giacobbe, founder of Connections, added: “Home to some of the country’s greatest natural wonders, including crater lakes, steaming volcanic waters and dramatic landscapes, the Azores is a destination that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of adventure.

“We can’t wait to invite all of our valued buyers and suppliers to this event where they will be able to forge life-long business relationships over unforgettable experiences.”
