What’s new at BLiP 2009!

It’s all systems go with just two weeks until this year’s Better Living in Portugal (BLiP) exhibition.

Yet again, this exhibition is going to offer visitors a great mix of disciplines, services and products, some that you may already have come across and many that you have not in your search for a better life here in Portugal.

As always, the entrance is free to everyone and, this year, the entrance draw is generously being sponsored by Monarch Airlines and CPD Satellites. So just by coming along, you could be a winner! See next week’s Algarve Resident for more information on this.

Visitors needing to avail themselves of a wheelchair for easier access through the pavilion will be pleased to learn that SulCare, healthcare specialists, are once again offering a free of charge service. If possible, please let SulCare know ahead of time which day and approximately what time you expect to be at BLiP.  SulCare can be called on 289 417 243 or send an e-mail to [email protected]  

There will be lots more about this year’s Better Living in Portugal exhibition in next week’s Algarve Resident – don’t miss it!
