GRI Club is pleased to announce the launch of Portugal GRI 2019 an event designed exclusively for global and local real estate investors, lenders, developers and operators who are active in Portuguese real estate. The event will take place on the 21st - 22nd May in Lisbon, Portugal.

At Portugal GRI 2019, senior and board-level executives will discuss investment appetite, development opportunities and partnership possibilities across all asset classes in Portugal.

Unlike a typical event or conference, GRI has a unique format, with no speakers or presentations. Instead, discussions are held in an informal and collegial manner, enabling everyone to participate freely.
Much like a conversation in your own living room, the unique discussion format enables you to interact and engage with others: to quickly find the right partners for your business, to build high value relationships, and to continue the conversation afterwards.
