Ovation Portugal will operate high touch incentive and corporate meeting programmes for international clients, while drawing on the experience of a local management team.

Ovation has pinpointed Portugal as a growing market for incentive travel, with the DMC intending to introduce guests to surfing, sailing and golf opportunities in the area.

Ovation’s director of global sales, Aoife Delaney, said: "With over 300 days of sunshine a year Portugal is clearly a very attractive option for clients seeking motivational employee trips, VIP excursions for valued guests, or high touch incentives in 2015 and beyond."

At the end of last year Ovation expanded its global presence with five new DMC partners in Armenia, Aruba & Curaco, Costa Rica, Tunisia and New Zealand.
