Fátima Vila Maior, FIL Exhibition Cordination Director and thus responsible for BTL, already in its 30th edition, states: "This hosted buyers program has been, over the last few years, a real opportunity for national companies to contact international buyers specialised in certain segments. After 29 editions, we intend to continue to invest in the sector and its international affirmation and to be able to take advantage of the giant wave of tourism in Portugal".

This program aims to support international buyers, enabling them to attend meetings and activities in the Portuguese market.
