Now in its 46th edition, the Algarve Tourism Region (RTA) and the Associação Turismo do Algarve (ATA) are once again working to boost the event with their assistance.
The support provided by both entities aims to strengthen the television coverage of the event through the Eurosport channel network and the national channel TVI24.
“This event is an excellent asset for promoting the image of the Algarve, its diversity and its beautiful landscapes, given that through the strong media coverage, it takes the region to more than 100 countries and 150 million homes throughout the world” said João Fernandes, president of RTA and ATA.
The event helped to provide the Algarve with 25 hours of visibility last year and also earned the region some €9 million.
The Volta ao Algarve is an important sporting event for the region with more than 1,000 participants including 25 cyclists from the top 100 in the world ranking and twelve teams from WorldTour.
