Brasília, founded as Brazil’s new capital in 1960, has been specifically designed to accommodate the country’s international trade and industry needs. With the highest GDP per capita of all major Latin American cities, it’s a centre for the communications, finance, legal, and entertainment industries in the continent. It caters particularly well to business travellers needing to get around the city and enjoy its fine selection of vibrant bars, restaurants, and entertainment destinations after work. Booking a hotel for your Brasília business trip will open up a wealth of commercial and leisure opportunities in this beautiful and well-connected area of Brazil.
What are the most interesting districts of Brasília?
The Eixo Monumental (Monumental Axis) resembles Paris’s Champs Élysées, with a wide, grass-lined avenue stretching from the National Congress and flanked by the city’s other major ministerial buildings. As this is Brasília’s political core, the important business areas are close by. Ten minutes away, you’ll find the Brasília Convention & Visitors Bureau, which is a 15-minute drive from Brasília International Airport. There are several restaurants along the avenue that offer a range of dining options in the city’s commercial hub. The Cultural Complex of the Republic, the Three Powers Plaza, and the Brasília Television Tower are all located on the avenue.
Where are the main business events located?
The Brasília Convention & Visitors Bureau is also near the CICB, Brazil’s International Convention Centre. Both are a short drive from the airport and Axis. It hosts business events and conferences and is available for private bookings for your company’s events. The city is also the country’s travel hub, with Brasília International Airport offering many connecting flights to the rest of Brazil and other major South American cities.
What else will booking a hotel in Brasília allow me to enjoy?
After work, head out for your Brasília hotel and grab a drink and dinner at Mormaii Surf, which serves Japanese, or Dudu Bar, which offers a contemporary Brazilian menu. Both are near the Monumental Axis and cater to Brasília’s upmarket professional crowd. The nearby ExpoBrasília fairs pavilion hosts several business and entertainment events, including the Global Petroleum Show. Booking a hotel near the Axis or airport will conveniently place you at the centre of Brasília’s business, politics, and entertainment.
