Around 5,500 people visited BLiP Expo 2017 held last weekend at the Portimão Arena. “A resounding success” were the words used by Michael Reeve, CEO of event organisers afpop, to sum up the comments from exhibitors and visitors alike.

Thousands of residents, property owners and potential investors visited the exhibition to talk to businesses taking part, to obtain advice and information across a broad range of products and services.

Visitors included people from as far afield as Angola, Moscow and the United States, some of them interested in moving to Portugal.
