Feira das Viagens is an initiative of the communication and marketing agency Jervis Pereira, which aims to promote the purchase and sales of travels, in a sophisticated environment, transparent and healthy competition.

Launched in 2013, at the Campo Pequeno, in Lisbon, the Fair promotes the meeting between travel agencies (offer) and consumers (demand) for a commercial advising experience in premium spaces, offering ideal comfort conditions for those who are looking for personalized service.

At Feira das Viagens, there is no room for crowds, musical events or any other type of animation that may detract from the focus: helping Portuguese families find competitive solutions for their holidays and helping the national tourism trade to run their most competitive programs.

The success of the initiative, in the first edition, encouraged the organizers to extend the concept to the cities of Oporto and Coimbra. In 2014, Feira das Viagens took place at the Palácio da Bolsa in Oporto, and in 2015, at the Pavilhão Centro de Portugal in Coimbra.

Having consolidated the format and loyal customers and exhibitors, in 2018, Feira das Viagens happened for the first time in Braga, giving the local population an opportunity to access a business model that has avenged in other cities. The Museum of Archeology D. Diogo De Sousa was the space chosen for the first edition, but in 2019, the event will happen in Altice Braga Forum.

Also in Lisbon, Feira das Viagens, begins a new era, with the relocation, in 2018, of the Campo Pequeno space for the Sociedade Nacional de Belas-Artes, in an initiative that combines three different experiences: buying and selling trips, exhibition of visual arts and visit one of the most emblematic buildings of the Estado Novo, located in the most noble area of the capital, right next to Avenida da Liberdade and Marquês de Pombal.

The main change for the 2020 edition is the change of space in Lisbon, which moves from the Sociedade Nacional de Belas-Artes to the Central Square of the Colombo Shopping Center, a solution found in line with the exhibitors that will qualitatively boost the event.
