Every five years at PLG we hold a four day meeting, the PLG Congress. This is different to the regular meetings that we hold three times a year – it is the opportunity for firms to send more participants and the schedule involves more joint activities among the members.
In May 2019 around 170 PLG lawyers from across the globe, along with guests, will congregate for the first time in Albufeira, Portugal, at the Salgados Palace Hotel. As well as General Assemblies for all lawyers and our young lawyers (YPLG) we will host speed networking events, a public speaking contest, a film contest, volleyball, petanque and 7-a-side football tournaments, as well as teambuilding activities.
As you can see it is a packed schedule, but we do manage to free up some spare time for an excursion, a trip to the spa or the hotel golf course.
PLG business is based on friendship and trust – we feel like a big family. It is always a pleasure to see each other at our regular meetings, but everyone always looks forward to the Congress as an opportunity to meet more people, create new working relationships and build up the network’s business in a relaxed, sunny environment.
We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with TAP Airlines who are our Official Carrier for this event.
