Last Thursday, February 9 and Saturday, February 11 provided Californians interested in moving to Portugal or investing in the country with the opportunity to meet face to face with representatives of 14 companies from Portugal that all joined the Open Media Group in Los Angeles and San Francisco for a successful roadshow event.
A total of 688 people registered to attend the events, ensuring a healthy turn-out with all of the participating companies reporting serious interest from potential customers.
The events started with a welcome dinner hosted by Open Media in Los Angeles for 40 guests, including representatives of the companies taking part in the roadshow and attended by Portugal’s Honorary Consul for Los Angeles Paulo Menezes.
The companies taking part were Medal (insurance), Blacktower (finance and tax), The Sovereign Group (residency), Casas do Barlavento (estate agents), Ombria Resort (developers), Quinta do Lago (developers), Martinhal Group (developers), CMS (law), BlueCrow (investment funds), Dengun (tech), Castelhana (real estate), Fine & Country (real estate), Currencies 4 You (forex) and the Kronos Group (developers).
The success of these first USA events cements Open Media’s plans to hold two further roadshow events in the USA this year, in June and in October.
In the meantime, back on the ground here in Portugal, the company’s next ‘Living in Portugal’ roadshow will be in Lisbon and Cascais on March 31 and April 1 – events will take place at the Altis Grande Hotel in Lisbon and the Grande Real Villa Itália Hotel in Cascais, respectively.
