5th November 2015 - Portuguese Chamber Gala Dinner in London
The Portuguese Chamber 2015 Gala Dinner will be held at the Royal Automobile Club, 89-91 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5HS, on Thursday 5th November 2015, in the presence of H.E the Ambassador of Portugal, Mr João de Vallera.
Our main guest speaker is Mr Stephen Hammond MP, Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Portugal.
The Gala Dinner is our main fund-raising event of the year, which is a black tie function beginning at 7.15pm with a Champagne Reception. Now firmly established as a highlight of our Events Calendar, the dinner is a popular and fun event which attracted 145+ guests last year – who were a wide cross section of senior executives from Portuguese and British companies engaged in trade between the two countries.
