Portuguese Business Network launch event

Portuguese Embassy, London

The launch event of the Portuguese Business Network, sponsored by Caixa Geral de Depósitos, was held on 14th July in the Ambassador's Residence. It was a great success, with over 120 people attending, among them senior business leaders from Deutsche Bank, HSBC, JP Morgan Asset Management and Morgan Stanley.

70% of the guests were not members of the Chamber, thus meeting our objective of introducing the Chamber concept to a new generation of potential members and also creating more senior networking events in our Calendar.

The launch was also featured in Diário de Noticias online (http://bit.ly/pdC0Al) and for pictures of the event, please see below.

The next event will be in November and we are currently discussing the date and venue with potential sponsors.
