Welcoming ELIA CONFERENCE: our “Porto from A to Z” guide
Elia is the European not-for-profit trade association of language service companies.
Because we like our city so much we really hope everyone coming for the event spares some time getting to know Porto and how much it has to offer. Porto has become a fashionable destination and abundant information can easily be found online to serve almost any tourist preference.
To help ELIA visitors get started, our team has decided to put together the “Porto from A to Z” guide. So, if you are coming to the conference, we hope this may help you find that exact piece of information you need for making the most of these days in Porto.
