Gala Dinner 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM
Casino Estoril

Congress Dinner Estoril, known as a beautiful fishing town surrounded by nature and historic settings, is as close to you as the sensations you want to experience. Estoril, just 20 kilometers from Lisbon, acted as the home of many exiled royal families since the Second World War and at its height its visitors referred to Estoril as the "Portuguese Riviera". It is in the heart of Estoril, with wide surrounding avenues, spacious gardens and beautiful sea views, that we find the greatest Casino in Europe where our Congress Dinner will take place in the fantastic Black and Silver Ballroom. Sealing the night, a musical spectacle created by the famous Portuguese theater director Filipe La Feria, brings us the history of Fado from its beginnings to present-time. Fado – A História de um Povo (Fado - History of the People) features a stellar and diverse cast including actors, singers, dancers, acrobats and musicians. This show features music from by Filipe La Feria, Paul Valentine and Artur Guimarães.
