Successful event in Lagos, next stop Quinta do Lago and plans announced to stage further events in Lisbon and the USA

The Open Media Group, publishers of the Portugal Resident newspaper, staged their second ‘Living in the Algarve’ event at the Cascade Wellness Resort in Lagos on Wednesday, June 15. Over 180 guests registered on the event’s website to attend ensuring a busy day for the organisers and exhibitors.

The events, now with the official cooperation of the Algarve Tourism Authority (RTA), are aimed both at visitors to the region who may be looking for information about living here and at recently arrived foreign residents who also may need assistance.

Event partners for the Lagos seminar were: AFPOP, Blevins Franks, Casas do Barlavento, Luzdoc/Medilagos, Medal Insurance, Rosado Advogados, Sovereign Group and as local media partners, Tomorrow Algarve magazine.

The Portugal Resident spoke to various visitors during the event, such as Mr Peter Allen from the UK who told us: “As a new arrival in Portugal, I was fortunate enough to attend Living in the Algarve at the Cascade Wellness Resort. Most of the exhibitors were of direct interest to me and I made contact with six subsequently, on a range of topics. Thanks Open Media for a fantastic event – really good for everyone involved.” Video highlights of the event can be seen here

Plans have also now been announced to expand the concept of these seminar events to various locations outside of the Algarve. “For events outside the Algarve, we will be rebranding as ‘Living in Portugal’ and we already have plans in hand to hold one event in the USA before the end of this year and one in Lisbon in early 2023,” said Open Media’s CEO Bruce Hawker.
