We welcome you to Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, the site of the 2017 IFIE-IOSCO Global Investor Education Conference hosted by ANBIMA!
Our Conference is located at the Rio Ortho Palace Hotel across the street from the Copacabana Beach. In addition to the Beach, which stretches 4 kilometers long, there are wide avenues and side streets featuring century-old buildings, shops, restaurants and cafés surrounding the hotel and alongside the Beach.
UNESCO named Rio de Janeiro a World Heritage Site for its natural beauty of mountains, beaches and sea, its architecture and city landscapes, and its cultural heritage including music and art. As the second-largest city in Brazil, there is much to see in Rio from Sugarloaf Mountain, to Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) Statue, to the Tijuca National Park, one of the world’s largest rainforests within a city. Cariocas (residents of Rio) have recently welcomed the world to the World Cup and Summer Olympic games.
You can arrange for tours of different attractions or neighborhoods in Rio at the Hotel Concierge station in the lobby. See the official Rio tourist site for some ideas of where you might like to go. http://www.visitbrasil.com/en/destinos/rio-de-janeiro/

Conference attendees may choose to add additional destinations within Brazil to their travel itineraries. Tours are being offered by the Rio-based company Havas Creative Tours.
