Industrial Exhibition

We will have some space available for your company, limited to a table to display your equipment and an electrical plug.

We will not charge an exhibition fee. However, each member from your company should register and pay the fee as any other regular participant to the conference.

The exhibitor registration is available here.

Social Programme

The conference dinner will take place at the restaurant of Casa do Alentejo, on Wednesday, the 8th of May, at 20:00. Restaurant's location: Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, 58 1150-268 Lisboa. The closest metro stations (walking distance < 5 min.) are: Restauradores (blue line) or Rossio (green line, Praça D. Pedro IV exit).
