The partnership between MediaConsult and Fundação AIP set the stage for two hundred Portuguese, American and Portuguese-American to attend the 4th Edition of the Construction Entrepreneurs Networking Seminar, held on March 1st and 2nd, 2018. This collaboration was fundamental for raising awareness by companies headquartered in Portugal of the benefits of networking with Portuguese-American companies based in the United State, in approaching the US market.
This two day event featured the presence of many enterprises such as US Concrete from New York, the Massachusetts’s S&F Concrete, P. Santos Construction from Pennsylvania, New Jersey’s Atlantic Plumbing Supply, the Portuguese organizations ViCoustic, AICEP and Fundação AIP, among others.\
New Jersey’s state representative Eliana Pintor Martin was honored with a custom made traditional Portuguese tile created by the talented Portuguese artist Fernando Silva, who handed out other tile awards to Paul Matos, owner of DNI, to Fundação Team Noah, represented by Vítor Fernandes and to Isabel Santos from New Jersey’s firm, Delcon.
Some of the many topics discussed concerned legislation, financing, the new tax regime, safe work procedures, arquitecture and financial consultation.
Clarisse Frias, MediaConsult’s CEO, ended the seminar by referring that “It is now recognized by the business community in Portugal that there exists a business environment of Portuguese heritage that is worthy of appreciation and relationship building.”
