Thursday, September 7th, 2017. 19:30 - 24:00
The conference banquet takes place in Palácio de Xabregas, which is located in the east of Lisbon's Center. This palace was built in the 16th Century by the renowned navigator Tristão da Cunha and is one of the few buildings that resisted to the 1755 earthquake. It is an icon of Portuguese History, also known for having the biggest private collection of Portuguese tiles. Xabregas, one of Lisbon's typical neighbourhoods built over 500 years ago, is home to several other palaces and historical and cultural points of interest. Our banquet will be served by the exclusive Penha Longa Resort and includes entertainment with our traditional Fado being sung, accompanied by the unique 12-string Portuguese guitar and followed by a fun entertainment surprise.
Palácio de Xabregas is 9Km away from Reitoria. There will be buses leaving the conference venue at 19:00. The address is Rua de Xabregas, 40, 1900-440 Lisboa.
