That is why we chose the Corinthia Lisboa, a five star venue with which many of our attendees are already familiar and other are lauding as a 'fantastic destination' for the conference.

"Attending an informative and well organized conference with top level speakers is always the obvious priority but," concluded Ms Manero, "doing so in a city as impressive and elegant as Lisbon, with its Old World charm, can only be capped off by convening at a venue like the Corinthia Lisboa Hotel. Our response to date has confirmed that, from those who have already traveled to Lisbon and particularly so for the many first time visitors."

IGCE has also announced that registration will be accompanied by reservations for specific luncheon seating with designated speakers on a first come, first serve basis and that attendees cannot sit with the same speaker on both days of the conference so that all have an opportunity to network and interact with the faculty members.
