Organised by Portugal’s largest Association for Foreign Residents and Property Owners, afpop, the event brings together key businesses in a face-to-face environment, in one place.

If you want to find out what is available to make your life even better in Portugal, BLiP EXPO is for you! There will be a wide variety of products and services for visitors to peruse at their leisure, providing for the needs of all-comers.

Look at the website to see the current list of nearly 100 exhibitors - many have a link to their own website so that you can find out more about them before you visit BLiP.

BLiP provides an informal but professional environment in which to explore lifestyle solutions. Previous exhibitors will be joined by newcomers and there will be promotions and special offers throughout the arena. Sponsored by Medal Insurance, the exhibition is strongly supported by the Algarve Regional Tourism Board.

This year, with a theme of Making Life Better, a special section within the arena has been designated as a ‘Community Area’ in which there will be a variety good causes providing much needed services for people and animals that rely on public support – not necessarily financial. Don’t hesitate to ask how you might be able to help.

afpop will of course welcome members old and new on their stand to renew subscriptions, discuss matters or just say ‘hello’.

The venue is the Portimão Arena with plenty of free parking and entry for visitors to the exhibition is also free.

The opening hours are: Saturday 10am – 6pm; Sunday 10am – 4pm.
