Post-Conference Powwow

This is post-conference powwow for 2013 Proz.com European International Conference, June 8 & 9, to be held in Porto.
Check the conference link at:

http://www.proz.com/conference/388

Social and nightlife revolve around three streets in central Porto: Galerias de Paris, Cândido dos Reis and Conde de Vizela. The atmosphere and the crowds in Porto don’t wake up until 11 at night, and the main ambiance is in the streets, not in the bars... So nothing better than to have our powwow right on this part of the city, and go from there until Monday morning!!!

Menu included:
- Various and traditional Portuguese entrées
- Codfish in Cream Sauce
AND
- Traditional Portuguese Chicken Rice in the Oven
(Traditionally this dish is cooked with duck meat, but because many people don’t like this kind of meat we decided for the lighter version of it cooked with chicken)
OR
- Puff-pastry with sautéed vegetables
- Wines: Aged red wine and white “Vinho Verde”, red Sangria, beer, waters and juices
- Sweet or fresh fruit salad
- Coffee

Price: 20,00 € per person.

PLACE:
Restaurante BibóPorto
Rua José Falcão, 114
4050-317 Porto

See you all there and hope you enjoy our choice!

IMPORTANT: Please make a note in front of your name if you want to have the vegetarian main dish.

Olá Allison
Desculpa o atraso na resposta mas só agora a tua pergunta me apareceu (não faço ideia o que se passou)...

O hotel da Conferência fica próximo da rotunda da Boavista, pelo que, se vens de comboio será melhor sair em Campanhã e entrar no Metro para a Casa da Música. Se quiseres vir por São Bento, terás de vir de autocarro para a Boavista (Galiza). Dá para vir a pé, mas com mala não dá tanto jeito... Se optares pelo táxi... vem para São Bento que é mais

Menu - vegetarian option Mar 8, 2013

Hi all
Please make a note next to your name if you are vegetarian, so that we know how many of you will go for that dish.
For all the others both the fish and meat dishes will be available.
See you in Porto!

Local mobile phones ? May 30, 2013

Hi all,

For those from elsewhere interested in using a local mobile phone during the Conference AND during their road trips throughout Portugal (which is highly recommended and worth it !), before and after the Conference, this is just to let you know there are extremely attractive offers for that with the local U Z O operator (sorry, we are not supposed to use his to advert anything, but this is just a too good to be true offer, that seems to be tailor made for those heavy abroad-tra

Hi all,

For those from elsewhere interested in using a local mobile phone during the Conference AND during their road trips throughout Portugal (which is highly recommended and worth it !), before and after the Conference, this is just to let you know there are extremely attractive offers for that with the local U Z O operator (sorry, we are not supposed to use his to advert anything, but this is just a too good to be true offer, that seems to be tailor made for those heavy abroad-travellers we can sometimes be).

Among many others, their latest offer is about an apparently "plain and simple" but unlocked GSM cell phone (and yet with mp3, radio, stereo earphones, Bluetooth, camera, memory card slot, voice recording, Internet enabled, e-mail, java apps, Facebook chat and much more...) of a very famous Finnish companyicon_wink.gif , already loaded with a 10 € prepaid calls+SMS credit PLUS 20 € petrol vouchers , for little more than 45 €.

This means you can use it while in Portugal and then go back home (or not, Portugal is sooo beautiful that you might want to stay forevericon_smile.gif ) with quite a handy extra mobile phone you can use on any GSM network, with any SIM card in it, for just about 15 € icon_smile.gif And even if you have no GSM network at home you can still use it while travelling in most European countries, or, as a last choice, use it as an MP3 player and handy radio and voice memo recorder and digital cameraicon_wink.gif

Ain't that a nice "souvenir" to bring back too ? icon_smile.gif

But they have a lot of other cell phones too, pre-paid, low-cost calls, no strings attached, hassle-free, some more complex than others, some more expensive than others, but normally all unlocked. Can always be useful.

See you soon !

Martin.

PS: you might find these things in some local shops (see their web page where exactly) but the whole set of offers is available on-line only. If you need help or want someone local to get one for you, just ask well in advance, as certain most wanted items might sell out rapidly and because delivery by post takes a few days after orders are sent.

PS2: To the site moderators, please, this should not be censored as misplaced advertisement, as I truly think this might be something helpful for many of us coming to Portugal from abroad. And I am not selling anything myself, here.
Thank you.
