“Set of experiences and facts” that the governor also made a point of highlighting during the ceremony. “RevPar [revenue per available room] between 2025 and 2022 rose 52.4% in Madeira; total revenue, from 2015 to 2022, rose 60%; and seat revenue, in the same period, rose 72%”, he explained .

For the present and future of this sector, which “is a transversal activity in our society and involves all sectors and all dynamics of the Region”, the government official highlights that the challenge involves sharing revenue and economic growth with professionals in the area. “Otherwise, we have a problem of lack of capacity to recruit professionals.
