2017 EducationUSA Portugal Fairs
If you are a representative of an accredited U.S. higher education institution, we invite you to participate in the spring 2017 EducationUSA Portugal Fairs in Porto (March 29th) and Lisbon (April 1st).
The Fulbright Commission in Portugal together with the EducationUSA will host the EducationUSA College fairs in Portugal for U.S.-accredited higher education institutions.
This year we will add Porto, the second largest city in Portugal, to the tour. The fair in Lisbon is integrated in Futuralia, a large four-day Education fair in Portugal every year which attracts 10,000 students throughout the event. The EducationUSA fair, which will take place on Saturday afternoon, April 1, 2017, will be held within the EducationUSA Pavilion at Futuralia, and will be a separate event for U.S.-accredited higher education representatives exclusively. In addition, this year you can choose to have a table during feature periods within Futuralia to promote your institution during the Futuralia exhibition. You can expect a high turnout of students during the exclusive fair period as well as during Futuralia itself. Events in Portugal include optional secondary or university visits, one-on-one partnership meetings, a country briefing, along with the fairs.
The planned schedule is the following:
Wednesday, March 29 Arrival in Porto
Thursday, March 30 School visits (TBD) & Porto EducationUSA Fair 4-7 pm
Friday, March 31 Travel to Lisbon & Feature Periods at Futurália
Saturday, April 1 Feature periods at Futurália & Lisbon EducationUSA Fair 3-6 pm
