Event Details

Due to the current evolution of the pandemic in Europe and according to the prescriptions of the directives of the Portuguese health authorities, “A World for Travel” has to be postponed. The new dates are 10-11 may 2021.

In order to work as a warm-up for next May´s event and in recognition of your availability and interest in the Évora Forum, we will still hold a 2 hour virtual event on the same first date (November 5th) for the large audience registered. This way we will be able to give the floor to some of the industry speakers as well as a flavour of the event, namely the sector’s extraordinary situation.  Scheduled on Thursday November 5th from 10:00 am GMT to 12:00 pm GMT.
