afpop created an online version of BLiP in 2020 and 2021 to keep the event front of mind during the pandemic, and businesses responded very positively enabling the ‘live’ event to return last year and develop again this year. afpop, organisers of BLiP since 2001, say that this lifestyle event is for everyone and not just their 10,000 members.
If you have interests in Portugal, whatever your nationality, then BLiP has been created with the aim of “Making Your Life Better”. No other exhibition brings together the exhibitor and visitor in a face-to-face situation, without distraction and without obligation, under one roof, in an informal yet professional ambience.
This year, there will be regular exhibitors joined by businesses appearing for the first-time – bringing together a very wide variety of products and services. You can find out more about the exhibitors on the website blip-expo.com to help you plan your visit, then take your time at the event.
Today’s pressures on household budgets, currency exchange, energy prices, financial concerns and health issues of all types, will be addressed by experts on hand over the weekend.
Health, household and motor insurance, financial management, investment, personal and corporate taxation, funeral planning … professionals will all be available to offer advice on these issues, and more.
Health (for you and your pets) and social care needs in the home, keeping fit, leisure activities or exploring the Algarve, it’s all at BLiP. For British, German, Dutch and French visitors, there will be stands staffed by personnel with your specific interests at heart.
Property advice from real estate professionals, whether for property sale, purchase or management is on hand. Construction and building renovation needs, small or large, are catered for as are your water treatment needs, outside painting solutions and internet/TV requirements.
Home and garden experts await you including providers of new kitchens, indoor and outdoor furniture, tree care, plants and garden centre supplies, through to major landscaping projects. There is even a selection of unique products for you and your home, made from 100% natural linen and cork plus a supplier of bedding, towels and soft furnishings.
Authors and artists are there to meet you and chat about their works. There will be wines, tasty chocolate treats, spicy piri-piri condiments and greetings cards, Christmas cards and 2024 calendars ready for you to take home. You can even have fun learning Portuguese!
Best of all, there will be special offers and promotions for visitors over the weekend. We have listed here those exhibitors that have told us that they will have special BliP promotions for visitors but there will be more, so don’t hesitate to ask whilst you browse the exhibition.
