On the first day, at about 5 o’clock, there is always the “Welcome Reception”. This allows people to wander around the booths, and catch up with the exhibitors. At the same time, there is always a certain amount of entertainment going on, often with a typically “local flavor”. On this night, there were artists painting small clay models, dancers, a lady in red, on stilts, The Stig! (yes – you read that correctly), and there was also typical Portuguese food available.
I really like this event because, over the years, at each Momentum I have attended, I am getting to know more of the partners. It’s always great to catch up with these people in a reasonable “non-rushed” moment.
