Event Description

Dear Members

We look forward to hosting our first event in Portugal and spending some great days together in the beautiful city of Lisbon in February 2018. This meeting is part of our ‘Dealmakers’ series which we launched in 2017 and is an exciting opportunity for you to directly connect with dealmakers across the world who are working with clients on cross border issues. This event will enable members to learn about what is happening in other jurisdictions and discover referrals, ideas for collaboration and ways in which the IR group can working together more closely for the benefit of all.

As usual tickets are limited, the ‘dealmaker’ events really focus on relationship development and providing quality time for attendees to connect and learn about each others practices. 
Please therefore be sure to confirm your interest and ticket ASAP to avoid being disappointed (all IR events have now been sold out for the last 4 years). In addition, this event will have a great social program including an opening drinks reception, luxury networking dinner and optional excursion, plus we highly recommend extending your trip and arranging meetings / dinners with other members before and after the conference.

We hope to see you there, for a wonderful few days of professional and social networking.
