  • Good space dedicated to concerts and shows. About architecture, is modern, beautiful and appealing. Inwardly, quite nice especially for the beauty of the coverage. Regarding the shows, in certain events, notice a few problems in acoustics. Worsened since organization passed to altice/meo (5 for the architecture of the Organization 3, 4 score)

  • The MEO Arena is huge and situated near a shopping mall and train station. Navigating the area is easy with signs pointing you where you need to go. There are also other shops and restaurants nearby. I was here for Web summit and the staff and security on hand were very helpful.
  • I was here for the Web Summit conference, which was quite impressive. The arena is a nice venue for the occasion, but it was a bit cold and windy from the entrance. I reckon this won't be the case for an event with a different atmosphere, like a concert. The arena is easy to reach by public transport. The nearest metro station is Oriente.
  • Amazing venue that can accommodate a lot of people. The entrance can be improved for events as it starts from the end away from the main source of transport (tram).
  • Spectacular venue for big events. Great viewing angles and acoustic. Very well located and easily accessible.
  • I was here for the websummit in 2016 and 2017, it is a good place for these speaches. Can however be a bit chaotic to get in and out of the place. The websummit in general is too crowded, but guess this is why it attracts so many famous speakers. Last one I saw was former vice president of the united states Al Gore, talking about the climate and how tech can help in this area.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
