Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Europarque congress centre sees H1 business demand higher than H1 2019

Santa Maria da Feira,Aveiro,Portugal, Aug.4,2022(Lusa)–The Europarque congress centre, which has been managed by the municipality of Santa Maria da Feira since 2015, has already exceeded 2019 occupancy, which, according to the local authority, had been the best ever in seven years of municipal management.
The data made available by the municipality in the district of Aveiro indicates that, comparing the first half of 2019 with the same period of 2022, the turnover of the congress centre has gone from total figures of around 252,000 euros to an amount that now exceeds 280,000.
"We have already recovered the demand of 2019, which was the best year ever since we took over the management of Europarque, and everything indicates that this level of occupancy will be maintained for the rest of the year," the mayor of Feira, Emídio Sousa, told Lusa.
The mayor had been following the evolution in the business volume of the congress centre with special expectation, because the Covid-19 pandemic "drastically damaged" the activity of the congress centre, forcing "a total stop in 2020, which was a year that was going to be historic" given the number of reservations formalised for that time.
The same forced stoppage also occurred in 2021, but Emídio Sousa believes that, "if everything goes well, and there are no more unforeseen events", the rhythm of growth of the centre "will continue and 2023 will be even better than 2022".
Events hosted at Europarque from 1 January to 30 June 2022 include music, theatre and children's entertainment shows, as well as corporate meetings, business initiatives in the area of 'teambuilding' and political rallies.
In the first half of 2019 the facility hosted 124 initiatives from different promoters, this year the bookings of auditoriums, halls or gardens at the centre have risen to 161.
Overall, the occupancy of these events has also increased, with the exception of initiatives with a capacity between 1,001 and 3,000 participants, which, in 2019 there were 13 and this year 11.
For all other available occupancy levels, however, there was a positive trend: events for less than 250 people increased from 85 to 110, those hosting 251 to 500 participants increased from 9 to 15, those with 501 to 1,000 spectators grew from 16 to 23 and those with more than 3,000 seats went from one to two.
Consequently, and only with regard to contracted events, this activity was also reflected in a greater number of visitors to the congress centre: in the first six months of 2019 the structure received 48,417 visitors and in the same period of 2022 it received 56,582.
Excluded from that statistic are all the citizens who flocked to the venue for Covid-19 vaccinations at the centre, which, set up there in March 2021 and operating since then using different devices and schedules, still occupies an area of 1,000 square metres that Europarque has been giving free of charge to the state health services.
