Why Madeira? 


Sub-tropical warm climate

Madeira’s climate inspires outdoor activity throughout the year. With very mild average temperatures, ranging from around 24º in the summer to 18º in the winter, it offers the ideal balance throughout the seasons.

Amazing Natural Landscape

Madeira’s natural heritage has been officially recognized as one of the most precious landscapes in the world, with an untouched prehistoric forest – having for this reason received one of the very rare UNESCO Natural World Heritage classifications. The best way to explore the mountains is by walking alongside the levada trails. These are the narrow irrigation canals that take water down from the mountains and cover over 2200 km of landscape.

Hotel quality

Accommodation is diverse and very good value. There are top class resorts and major international hotel chain represented on the islands. Most of the accommodation in Madeira takes full advantage of the natural surroundings, in Oceanside settings and with lush tropical gardens. There are spa retreats delivering wellness programs, and famous landmark hotels created over a hundred years ago that have kept their elegance and charm.

Special venues & meeting spaces

From a small VIP meeting to a highly organized conference with up to 3000 delegates, there is a tailor-made solution waiting to fit each request.

Network of reliable professionals

Madeira has professional convention staff and experienced DMC’s that make sure your event is cost-effective and success. There are competent multi-lingual guides and transportation is comfortable and modern.

Assurance of security and safety

The Madeira Islands are well known as a tranquil oasis, ranking as one of the safest places to visit in the world.

Competitive price and excellent value

Madeira has kept a good balance of high-quality services at reasonable prices. The cost of living on the island is low in comparison to other European destinations.

Easy to reach

Madeira is easily accessible, with frequent and fast connections from major international airports. It has a totally renovated international airport that takes over 3,5 million passengers. Airlines such as TAP, British Airways, easyJet, Jet 2, Monarch, Lufthansa, airberlim, Edelweiss or Transavia, they all serve Madeira with several connections to better suit your needs. Located only fifteen minutes away from most of the hotels and conference centres in Funchal, transfers to and from the airport are very convenient.
