BLiP 2019 was the biggest BLiP we’ve had in the 6 years since we began organising the event in house at afpop. We had more exhibitors (103) and more stands (130) than any previous year and comments from the exhibitors and visitors alike were overwhelmingly positive about BLiP and its growth. Of course there are always some things that may not go to plan or that we need to look at for the future, but without doubt this was our most successful BLiP Expo in recent years. We also broadened the phrase ‘Better Living’ a little, to try to look at what it actually means to have a better life. We included more of the arts and also a community stand, both of which were even better received than we dared hope they might be.

I would like to thank our partners for BLiP, MEDAL Insurance, The Algarve Tourism Agency, Portimão Câmara and the Resident as our Media partner for their excellent and invaluable support for our flagship event. They are also a part of the reason for our successful Expo.  



Watch out for our new 2020 Video

For the last 20 years, BLiP Expo has been the all-inclusive exhibition where a wide range of businesses have showcased their products and services to residents in Portugal, with health care, financial services, insurance, consular services, energy solutions, gardens and outdoor living, leisure, removals, fashion, pest control, windows, doors, security, blinds, artisans, travel, technology, funeral services, property, food and wines, greetings cards and much more - all under one roof. This year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to bring the physical BLiP Expo to you – but the good news is … we have an alternative. Look out for news on this very soon.
