Aptrad’s 2nd International Conference
Conference for freelance translators and interpreters 17-19 May, 2018 - Porto, Portugal
Thank you for having joined us in Porto for Aptrad’s 2nd International Conference! See you in 2020!

The Douro stretches from the Atlantic Ocean and the port city of Porto, all the way east and south to Spain's Vega de Terron. Porto (Portugal's second-largest city), has some 2,000 years of history behind it. While it's best known for the production of port wine (wine that's fortified with the addition of brandy), it's a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis. But, once you leave Porto, everything changes.

All in all, a Douro River cruise comprises so many small discoveries, small pleasures and such a generous amount of time sailing on a riverboat that you'll be lulled into a relaxing rhythm that's far away from frantic sightseeing and over-scheduled days. Chances are, you'll be dreaming of that Douro magic long after you get home.

Dr. António Cupertino de Miranda Foundation Restaurant

Our conference gala dinner (18 May) will be held at the Dr. Antonio Cupertino de Miranda Foundation Restaurant, a place regarded as unique, whether for its location, or for its ambiance and cuisine.

The Foundation was established in 1964 and is a private, non-profit institution. Its aim is to provide educational, cultural and social activities that promote the knowledge society and contribute to social inclusion, whilst at the same time offering leisure activities. It has also been home to the Museum of Paper Money since 1996, which is the institution’s distinctive centre point and forms part of the Portuguese Museums Network.

Casa da Música Restaurant

The conference farewell dinner (May 19th ) will be held at Restaurant Casa da Música, discreetly nestled into the building’s rooftop. Its extraordinary terrace overlooks Jardim Rotunda da Boavista and boasts spectacular panoramic views over the city of Porto. The Restaurant Casa da Música offers a variety of different settings and cuisine styles.

The elegant and relaxed restaurant arose through the transformation of Pedro Cabrita Reis’s installation, which was originally created for the Operas Duke Bluebeard’s Castle and O Rapaz de Bronze (The Bronze Boy).

Chef Artur Gomes offers signature cuisine imbued with his unique style through a fusion of simplicity and elegance. Gomes presents contemporary and international cuisine with Portuguese roots, preparing attractive and original dishes with the most carefully selected ingredients. Whether savouring the tapas at the Barra Bar or the various courses in the Restaurant, our cuisine will be a treat for your senses.
