The Lisbon Tourist Market - BTL, Portugal’s largest tourism fair, is once again going to have four pavilions next year after some years with just three, the event director, Fátima Vila Maior said on Tuesday.

Fátima Vila Maior told reporters that the first pavilion would be dedicated to the domestic tourist destination and the second one would be for town halls – an area the BTL wants to develop and that is “going to be one of the most interesting areas “ -, and cuisine.
Pavilion three will be for hotels and this is where the ‘BTL Lab’ will be, which began in another edition and that has to do with new tourism formats and the ‘hosted buyers’ (who support the arrival of international buyers, such as the case of TAP).

Pavilion four will be for international destinations and travel agents.
The 2019 BTL “is going to take a very interesting qualitative and quantitative leap”, the fair director said, adding that the great investment is in the ‘BTL Lab’ and the continuation of other ideas such as the Employability Forum, which was very successful.
Next year’s edition of the BTL is going to be held between 13 and 17 March at the Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL), in the Park of Nations.
