This is why I take many of my club managers regularly to the IHRSA Congress."

LISBON, PORTUGAL

Built on seven hills, Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal with a population of about 550,000. The sun shines 290 days a year, and the temperature averages a warm 20oC in October. Explore the calm bairros, and discover a city where everything moves at a slower pace. Eat local favorites bacalhau (salted codfish) and pastel de nata (cinnamon sprinkled cake).
