TBU Porto Conference Schedule

Thursday 6th September
This is the main arrival day for TBU Porto delegates. There are no official conference events, yet there will be a central bar where everyone can meet up in the evening. If possible, we’ll put a relaxed event on, maybe a pub quiz. Either way, keep your eyes peeled.

Friday 7th September
This is the main pre-conference day and comprises of the following exciting events:
- 0930 – 1400: Conference Registration Open (Sheraton Hotel)
- 1000 – 1300: City Tours
- 1030 – 1500: Photo or Video Workshops and Walks
- 1845 – 2200 – Welcome to Porto Cocktail Networking Event

•1845 – Boats leave Ribeira Quay for a sunset cruise along the Douro river *DONT MISS THEM*
•1915 – Cocktail Reception at Pousada do Porto Freixo Palace Hotel
•2200 – Transport back to Porto

The event is designed in such a way that it begins at 1845 and you must be there 5-10 minuets earlier, in order to take part in the evening. The sunset river cruise takes you to the venue and we will bus you back around 2200. There is no alternative transport if you miss the boats and no alternative return transport will be provided until 2200.
