Welcome to the 104th Rotary International Convention

Our challenge takes more than to hold a Rotary International Convention.

Our challenge is to have in Lisbon a milestone International Convention ever.

Portugal loves challenges:

In the 15th century someone said that the world ended in Cape of Good Oath, and we proved that there was a way to India.

In the 16th century we discovered Brazil, went to Asia, China and Japan, and spread our culture of tolerance, and sympathy to all people that we met.

Our Rotary Convention in Lisbon will be our harbor for peace, building new friendships and setting the path for Rotary’s success.

  3. Given that the convention site is away from the city centre, will there be shuttle transport back and forth? We are very keen to come. Any pre-excursions planned?

  7. I would like to know more details of RI Convention in Lisbon including registration fees, deadline etc. Thank you

  8. There appears to be two different dates showing for the RI Convention in 2013, some sites indicate June 23rd to June 26….others show June 26th to June 29th. Does Portugal operate on a different Calendar? (JOKING!) Here is a sample of a google search..RI Convention

    http://www.riconvention.org/Register and plan your trip to the 2013 Rotary International Convention, June 26- 29, in Lisbon, Portugal. Get the latest schedule, program, housing and travel …

    When you actually open the link it shows the 23rd to 26th! I think someone needs to review what’s being communicated…and advise on correct dates…I’m about to change my hotel reservations again!!

    I’d hate to miss everyone!
