BTL optimism

Things are looking good for the Algarve’s tourism sector in 2015, according to the “positive” feedback the regional tourism board (RTA) received from trade officials, municipalities, the media and the general public at this year’s Lisbon Tourism Fair (BTL).

Tourism boss Desidério Silva said the fair helped him feel optimistic about 2015, adding the 70,000 people who visited BTL are a testament to the fair’s “importance to Portugal and the Algarve”.
