History

OUR HISTORY…

… is linked to your history

In 1998 we were awarded the concession to manage the Maritime Passenger Station of the Port of Rio de Janeiro, main entrance of international tourism in Brazil, and has an area of 40,000 square meters in the surroundings. After taking over the area, we spent long years investing in the restoration, improvement and maintenance for us to have today what you know: Pier Mauá! Our International Cruise Terminal along these years has been beating records, as in Carnival 2016, when we received 11 simultaneous ships; and for seven years we have been awarded by Travel Weekly, important tourism industry publication, in the category “Best Cruise Port in South America” (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016).
In addition to managing the Cruise Port of Rio, Pier Mauá also operates in the segment of parties and events by allocating their spaces for holding the most exciting events of the town, such as Rio Gastronomia, Veste Rio, Mondial de La Biere, ArtRio and many others!

Além de administrar o Porto de Cruzeiros do Rio, o Pier Mauá atua também no segmento de festas e eventos, alocando seus espaços para realização dos mais badalados eventos da cidade, como Rio Gastronomia, Veste Rio, Mondial de La Biere, ArtRio e muitos outros!

 

The company started operating in the event area in 2007 after the commencement of the restoration works of its warehouses, which have transformed the Pier Maua into the most noble and versatile area for conferences, concerts and a variety of artistic and cultural events of the country. There are 3.500 m² allowing the circulation of 10 thousand people a day at a large scale event, with the privileged view of Guanabara Bay.

 

Pioneer in the revitalization of the Rio de Janeiro port area, Pier Mauá launches the look into the future with the purpose of integrating the port to the city – in line with “Porto Maravilha”, a project of the City Government.Soon we will have more news to explore there. According to the president of the Pier Mauá, Luis Cerqueira, “the team is working hard to guarantee the dream of the Project City Port, which aims to bring Carioca people and tourists to enjoy the areas the nearest the sea. Soon this dream will come true and will help to keep alive the historical importance of the port area.”
