Turismo de Portugal [Turismo de Portugal] is developing an integrated international project to promote Portugal as a tourist destination, in which it serves as the bonding element of several actions implemented in the external target markets in the area of tourism promotion.

This strategic objective embodies a common interest of Turismo de Portugal and the regional destinations and tourist operators. Achieving this objective would remedy the weaknesses felt by these entities in the absence of regional strategies for international promotion and in terms of the need to strengthen the international promotion of tourism in Portugal.

As such, the project will directly influence tourist demand, increase revenues from tourism and indirectly boost the profitability of the sector. 

The purpose, therefore, is to strengthen the reputation of Destination Portugal and to help to convert the country’s promotional effort in the selected target markets into sales, through the following activities:
1. international online advertising campaign
2. presence of Destination Portugal in international markets
