Here is a short Palmela 2011 update.
Palmela 2011 Registrations opened a couple weeks ago and yesterday we run out of rooms in the Palmela Castle Pousada already!
The IVRPA worked with the Pousadas de Portugal hotel chain to extended the Palmela 2011 deal (same prices, same conditions) to the nearby Pousada de Setúbal (in exclusivity) and today we started booking rooms for Palmela 2011 attendees there.
Fear not, since bookings are coming in quite fast, we are working with other hotel units in the Palmela area to provide another hotel option at same rates and conditions in case we run out of rooms in the São Filipe Fortress Pousada.
Meanwhile, we have several volunteer teams working on the exhibitions program, sponsors, attendees and speakers program.
The first Palmela 2011 speaker was just announced: Ignacio Ferrando Margelí.
Ignacio will give a talk about how to capture the impossible panorama and will also bring in his Microcopter for a live demo flying over Palmela old town.
This summer Palmela, Portugal, will become the world capital of panoramic photography. It is going to be amazing!
Hope to see many of you here in Palmela, next June.
My best regards
Os melhores cumprimentos
