ACISO - Ourém-Fátima Business Association has been organizing the IWRT annually since 2012, in partnership with the Municipality of Ourém and the Sanctuary of Fátima, and since 2018, the Municipality of Guarda has also joined.

Main objectives:

  • Promote a Contact Exchange;
  • Promote Portugal internationally as a preferred destination for Religious Tourism;
  • Reinforce the importance of Religious Tourism in the context of the global tourism sector.

Registrations are limited, and final approval by the IWRT organization is required.

In the last edition, we gathered representatives from 47 countries (markets) who concluded nearly 5000 business meetings.
