Top MICE destinations for autumn

Sometimes too much choice can be a bad thing, and as border restrictions continue to relax around the world it’s suddenly a lot more difficult to choose a foreign destination for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE). To help narrow your search, we’ve collated some of the best MICE travel destinations for late summer and autumn.



Portugal has excellent air links to the rest of Europe and its incredible cuisine, stunning architecture, warm weather and strong infrastructure make it a leading MICE destination.

Served by an award-winning airport with flights to most European cities, the northern city of Porto boasts leading MICE venues like the Alfandega Congress Centre, Exponor Exhibition Park and Europarque. Capital city Lisbon is another top choice with global flight connections and a range of conference hotels, while Évora has a UNESCO-listed historic centre and is great for hosting small and medium-sized business events.

If you’re after a coastal location for your trip, head just beyond Lisbon to charming seaside resorts including Estoril and Cascais or discover more sea, sand and gastronomy in the country’s largest region, Alentejo. The Algarve and islands like the Azores and Madeira have excellent MICE facilities along with outdoor activities such as golf, surfing and hiking.

Andalucia, Spain

Located in southern Spain, Andalucia encompasses several areas that are great for autumn MICE travel. The most popular is Grenada, where you can host events at well-equipped hotels and conference centres before treating your party to a guided tour of the famous Alhambra medieval fortress with its royal palaces and reflecting pools. Seville is another fantastic base for business trips, thanks to incredible architecture like Cadedral de Sevilla, Plaza de Espana, Museo Arqueológico de Sevilla and the Plaza de Toros. You could even arrange a performance of the city’s famous flamenco dancing at your event.

Many of Andalucia’s lesser-known towns and cities are perfect for small- and medium-sized groups – Cordoba is the world’s only city with four UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Cadiz has a large conference centre, Jerez de la Frontera is famous for its wine country and Ronda has trendy hotels, a racetrack and an olive oil mill. For meetings with sea views, head for Marbella or the Costa del Sol.

Gran Canaria, Canary Islands

African by location and Spanish by nationality, Gran Canaria’s sub-tropical climate makes it a popular year-round tourist destination. The island also has excellent MICE facilities for corporate travellers who want to combine meetings with soaking up some autumn sun.

The resort of Las Palmas has two convention centres for large-scale events. Incentive trips, meanwhile, can stay at renowned wellness resorts like Gloria Palace San Agustín, which reportedly boasts Europe’s largest thalassotherapy centre, or join the island’s many British expats for a round of golf at Spain’s oldest course, the Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas.

For a MICE trip with a difference, visit during one of Gran Canaria’s many quirky festivals for a unique taste of the local culture. One of the biggest celebrations is the Fiesta de Charco, which takes place every September in La Aldea de San Nicolás and sees 20,000 people try to catch fish from a lagoon with their bare hands.

A short flight from the UK and Europe, Egypt is a great autumn MICE destination where you can blend modern venues with legendary ancient relics.

Capital city Cairo is bursting with world-famous historic and cultural attractions like the Egyptian Museum, Al-Azhar Mosque, Old Cairo and the Pyramids of Giza. There’s a wide selection of restaurants serving everything from Italian to Japanese food, while shopaholics can explore winding souks and designer malls.

Egypt has an array of conference centres set up for hosting large events. Make your MICE trip extra special by including a boat ride down the River Nile, a gala event under the shadow of the temples of Luxor or a beguiling desert excursion. You could even organise a team-building game of donkey polo!
