Where we are

FUMEC is located in Belo Horizonte, one of the most important cities in Brazil. It is the capital of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, and it is proud to be one of the best cities in the Country to live. It has wide avenues, squares and forested areas, delighting everyone who visits. Fondly nicknamed Belô or Beagá, the city offers interesting leisure areas, theatres boasting an intense artistic-cultural production, good and varied cuisine, exquisite handcrafts available on the markets and specialised stores, and maintains a traditional characteristic: the mineira hospitality.

The city is currently a dynamic metropolis, with 2,5 million residents. Considering the municipalities forming the Metropolitan Region, this population goes up to four million residents, according to the 2000 Census. In today’s bold and modern city, the economic development has been going through the professionalisation of many different tourism segments, above all the events and business segments.

For this reason, the advantages this city could offer do not stop there. BH has a quality tourism infrastructure, with good airports, with many flights everyday to Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and all the 5 regions of Brazil, great hotels and restaurants, a vast array of services, sophisticated shopping, active nightlife and good spaces for medium sized events, contributing for the consolidation of its vocation for the business and services sector.
