Day two of C&IT’s International Forum in Portugal began with a talk from Ricardo Cunha, corporate affairs manager, Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, who told everyone about the Autodromo: Algarve Classic Festival 2017.

Next to take to the stage was Kate Scully, group travel manager - global, G4S, who asked the question: ‘International Risk - Are We Any Less Safe Internationally?’ You can read the highlights from her talk here

Then Jane Pettman, senior event manager at Salesforce, told everyone about ‘Delivering A Personalised Experience At Dreamforce’. 

After the talks, one-to-one meetings and lunch at the Autodromo race track, it was time for the pit stop challenge. Delegates were divided into teams, given some fetching pit crew jumpsuits and timed as they changed the wheels on a car as fast as they could, recreating the atmosphere and professionalism of any Formula 1 pit crew.

In the evening, delegates were taken to the beautiful Pestana Alvor Praia hotel for a gala dinner as the sun went down, with live Fado music to serenade them between courses.
