MEETING VENUE(S) Savoy Palace

European buyers meet global suppliers

We know how hard it can be to find the venues that do MICE differently - the truly unique individual properties, creative boutique hotels, and hidden gems that help you create memorable events for your clients.

Join us in Madeira for 3 days of discovery, relationship-building, and networking with hotels and venues that can be hard to meet in a market often dominated by the hard brands. The intimate nature of M&I Private Forums guarantee you will get to know every supplier of interest to you - while discovering the MICE credentials of a rejuvenated destination.

Madeira, Portugal

Madeira has it all - it's easily navigable, with a pleasant climate, multiple event venues, abundant nature and a relaxed way of life. From vineyards to beaches, tropical gardens to fincas, Madeira's charms are well known. The island is proving popular with younger visitors who are attracted by its sophisticated, laid-back style - and we want to show you why.

Savoy Palace

The latest addition to the Savoy family, the Savoy Palace perfectly embodies the ethos of its grand sibling. Located in Funchal, with fabulous views of the sea, the city, and the mountains, it's no wonder that the Savoy Palace is an enduring favourite for MICE planners and leisure guests alike. With conference space for up to 100 event attendees and up to 400 in a variety of outdoor options, the Savoy Palace is a great choice for small to medium MICE events.
