Apart from all this, the Congress will be held in Rio... With white sand beaches, warm weather and very friendly people, we really look forward to receiving all of you. Rio hosted the World Youth Day with the presence of Pope Francis and received over 200 thousand foreigners. The city has also been chosen to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic games, so the entire city is being renewed and renovated. A good example is the Convention Centre where the Congress will be held. Brand new, it is located downtown with over 1,000 parking spaces and a complete infrastructure such as a subway system and bus stations. It is approximately 20 minutes away from the domestic airport. It is really a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to enjoy a city already known for its natural and cultural beauty with brand new infrastructure that will surely add to your comfort. We are very proud to be able to present entertainment for all ages. If a relaxing time laying on sandy beaches is not what you have in mind for your trip, our city can present you with alternatives ranging from culturally intense activities such as museums and expositions to the true explosion of colours and rhythm from the samba schools that will definitely never be forgotten.
Corcovado waits for you with his arms wide open!
