New Moving to Portugal online events programme begins

Since late 2017, over 6,000 people have attended the Chamber’s Moving to Portugal Shows and Seminars in the UK and Ireland, and the demand for more information about retiring to Portugal or moving your business and family there for lifestyle reasons grows each month.

Due to the escalating corona virus crisis, the Chamber had to postpone its live Moving to Portugal Show and Seminars in London on 17th March 2020 at very short notice.  We have now set the new date for the next  live show for Tuesday 20th October 2020 at the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel in central London (to be confirmed).

Luckily, although travel may be restricted just now, plans for moving to Portugal don’t have to be delayed indefinitely. We will keep you up to date, as Portugal eases its lockdown restrictions and reopens its economy little by little.

Today’s new technology means that, even if you can’t visit Portugal in person until things improve, you can still have a virtual look around lots of potential homes and also talk to our Chamber members and our Moving to Portugal tax, pensions and lifestyle experts from the comfort of your own home.

The Chamber is now setting up a series of online webinars and one-to-one sessions on various topics of interest around Moving to Portugal and we will be releasing details of these in the next few days.  Anyone is welcome to register for the sessions and get advice from our experts.

Our first online event was held on Saturday 25th April, with Chamber members Vilamoura World who have just completed their new show home at Uptown Vilamoura – which you can now view online using the latest 360 photo technology.

Vilamoura’s new immersive technology allows visitors  to “walk” around the house and see it from all angles, from the comfort of their own home, and the photography gives a really true feeling of the villa and its finishings.

This unique collaboration between the Chamber and Vilamoura also attracted the attention of the Portuguese press, with Expresso newspaper from Saturday 25th April covering the story.
