Welcome Cocktail

22 September 2020 (20:00-22:00)


The Welcome Cocktail will take place in the Holiday Inn Porto Gaia hotel. Do not miss this opportunity to say the first "hello" to attendees and committee members.


Gala Dinner & Port Wine Degustation

24 September 2020 (18:30-23:00)


The Gala Dinner will take place on a comfort and elegant modern river cruise boat to enjoy the river Douro. We will have a truly unique evening (a culinary and cultural trip all in one) in the beautiful city - Porto. It will be a treat for the eyes and stomach. You’ll discover the enchantingly lit waters of Porto by night as you savor the flavors of a hearty, gourmet dinner.


The preliminary Port wine degustation will take place in the famous Sandeman Cellar - one of the most popular attractions in Porto, before the Gala Dinner. Sandeman produces one of the best, famous port wine since 1790. No trip to Porto would be complete without a Port wine tasting !
