The historic Barco Evora awaits us at the “Spaniard’s Dock” (Doca do Espanhol) in Lisbon’s Alcântara neighborhood.

We’ll remain in port for the first part of the day, which is devoted to panel discussions and talks, before we begin a 4-hour leisurely cruise, stopping by some of Lisbon’s most famous sights. 

To the backdrop of the Lisbon sunset, we’ll enjoy dinner, drinks, and an RCBI trivia contest with fabulous prizes for the winners, before we slowly make our way back to port.

Built in Germany in 1931 with recycled plates from WWI tanks, the Evora was the first ship in the world to have stainless steel propellers and was also Portugal's first diesel-powered ship. For decades, she served as a ferry between Lisbon and Barreiro and doubled as a floating wine cellar, carrying thousands of liters of Muscatel in wooden casks.


A full day of talks and panels with experts in their fields, warm lunch and dinner, and an open bar throughout the day.

You’ll want for nothing.


We recommend smart casual, so you can safely leave your tie or your heels at home. Temperatures on May 31st historically average 23-25°C, so you’re not likely to need a jacket until after sunset.


The Barco Evora is moored at the Cais Rocha Conde de Óbidos, at the eastern part of the Doca do Espanhol in Lisbon’s Alcântara neighborhood

To arrive by taxi or Uber, we suggest inputting Seaventy Aluguer de Barcos e Eventos as the destination. 

Alternatively, the Cais Rocha (Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga) transit station is just a stone’s throw away from the dock. 


IMI Connect is a for-the-industry, by-the-industry event. You’ll meet IMI contributors, partners, and readers like yourself. They come to talk frankly and off-the-cuff about the challenges and opportunities facing RCBI professionals, not to make dull and repetitive presentations about particular projects. Speakers and panelists will be selected based on their relevant expertise, not based on sponsorship alone.
