How properties have survived the pandemic
In a highly unusual year, many properties have been turned into schools, offices and gyms.
2020 will stick in the collective memory as a year in which properties built for housing changed use and gained a more multifunctional dimension.
And this flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances will certainly be one of the themes of this year’s Portugal Property Show (SIL 2020) and its sister trade fair for the construction and public works industry Tektónica.
Both events will run at the same dates and times in Lisbon at fairs and trade congress centre at the city’s Parque das Nações (Metro station — red line: Oriente) between 8 and 11 October 2020.
According to FIL’s (Feira Internacional de Lisboa) administration, putting on the two fairs at the same time is an excellent idea since both sectors are intrinsically interlinked and can take advantage of the various synergies and events that the construction and property shows can provide, particularly when it comes to visiting the many stands and networking cocktail events.
It also provides a useful experience to see the latest trends and building materials in the construction market, find a property bargain for house-hunters, see some of the most exciting new property developments aimed at the residential and tourism sectors, or even to get some ideas and tips on making outside home improvements.
It should also be stressed that FIL recently received the “Safe Travels” certificate from the World Travel and Tourism Council because of its through and strict health and hygiene levels and routine for all attendees and visitors to the four-day trade fairs.
