Portofino, Italy

Past Europe Asia Conference

25 JUNE - 2 JULY 2018

The Italian Riviera is defined by its pastel seaside towns nestled among a coastline of sheer rugged cliffs—including the colourful villages of Cinque Terre and the stylish resort towns such as Portofino, Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure. Using Santa Margherita as our base, we will explore Liguria including the five fishing villages that are Cinque Terre: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

A UNESCO heritage site, Cinque Terre is rooted in antiquity, with the oldest of the villages founded in AD 643. The villages have slowly carved their way into the cliffs ever since. Liguria has an excellent public transport system and getting around by bus is often a convenient choice when exploring the bigger towns in Liguria as well as hopping from town to town.

Santa Margherita is a short hop to both Portofino and Rapallo with regular services running daily. In fact, it's only a 5 minute bus ride from the Excelsior Palace Hotel in Rapallo to the Continental Hotel in Santa Margherita. 


Social Agenda

Our conference structures numerous social events to allow for networking in relaxed settings. We encourage all delegates to attend the social events as the information exchange is deemed invaluable by many participants as well as it being an opportunity for you to discover more of this exciting conference location.

Academic Program and Accreditation

All  sessions are conducted by practitioners and leading academics, however our program structure is unique to CPE Conferences. Over the last 20 years we have adopted a model that allows us to accommodate local and VIP speakers whom, due to professional demands were unable to confirm their availability, would otherwise be unable to share their international perspective.
