Tomorrow magazine is a media partner of the Living in the Algarve seminar event to be held on 15 June at the Cascade Wellness Resort, near Porto de Mós, Lagos.

This is the second Living in the Algarve event to be held this year, with the launch event at the Tivoli Carvoeiro hotel in April hailed a great success. Organised by the Open Media Group and with the cooperation of the Algarve Tourism Board, the events aim to provide useful information to anyone who is thinking about moving to the Algarve, or indeed, to those who already live here but may be looking for more information. 

The event is hosted and mediated by Open Media CEO Bruce Hawker, who himself has lived in the Algarve for over 40 years. Two identical seminar sessions, which are free of charge to attend, will be held at 11 am and 3 pm, so guests can choose in which session they wish to book seats. 

Each session will start with an introduction by Bruce Hawker followed by presentations from the following speakers: 

Lawyer Pedro Rosado of Rosado Advogados will talk about the legal aspects and dos and don’ts of buying and owning a property in Portugal; Shelly Wren of the Sovereign Group will give a presentation focused on residency options for non-EU nationals such as the D7 and Golden Visa; Gavin Scott of Blevins Franks will talk about tax issues for foreign residents focusing on the NHR (non-habitual residency) tax scheme; Paul Cotterell of estate agents Casas do Barlavento will provide insight into the property market of the western Algarve; Dr Maria Alice Serrano e Silva of Luzdoc and Medilagos will talk about healthcare options and, finally, Michael Reeve of afpop will talk about how their organisation with over 8,000 members can help foreign residents of all nationalities. 

Following the presentations from all the speakers, a Q&A session is held with all speakers on stage. Each session has a coffee break around halfway through with complimentary refreshments for guests and, after the seminar, there is time to meet the speakers and members of their teams in an adjoining exhibition area whilst tasting some local Algarve wines. 

Tomorrow as always, supporting local events and activities, will be amongst the exhibitors. We hope to see you there.
