Troia Conference Centre is part of the Troia Design Hotel complex, which also includes a 5-star hotel with serviced apartments, casino and performing arts centre. Troia is an amazing peninsula located 50 km South of Lisbon, between the mouth of the Sado River and the Atlantic Ocean, and across the river from the fishing and port city of Setubal, with a significant number of tourism projects being master planned for eminent development.
The conference centre has been conceived in such a way as to allow maximum flexibility for simultaneous events; thus it can be accessed through foyers on opposite ends. These foyers are in turn connected to twin canopies, forming a cantilever than spans over 25 metres on the lengthier side, towards north. The latter offer shelter from the sun and the rain whilst marking unequivocally the guests entrance.
The main ballroom capacity is 900 guests on a single event, and can be split into four rooms with dedicated foyers.
In addition, there are eight multipurpose breakout rooms for up to 100 seats.
Unperceived by guests, all the catering services and technical support are provided through a main vertical shaft at the core of the complex.
