From the ashes of Portofino Meeting, in 2019 a new meeting is born: Lake Como 2019.
The concept will be the same as the old Portofino meeting:
We'll be staying in the recently renovated Griso Hotel in Malgrate, close to Lecco. All the rooms of this 4 stars hotel have a beautiful view over the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Also the hotel has a private garage for our sevens, and it's very easy to get there from the main road SS36.
If you click the registration button at the bottom of this page you will be redirected to the registration form.
Then you will be asked if you want an hotel or not. Usually you will want an hotel in fact. But if you have another accomodation, or you have a tent (please check camping availability, camping is not allowed in public areas), or if the room availability has finished, you can choose to register to the meeting without an hotel.
If you choose to have an hotel you will be prompted questions about your hotel stay, which nights you want to book (friday + saturday).
Please note that the hotel includes breakfast and the garage for your car in the hotel.
You will also be asked to which meals do you want to attend to.
The Saturday night dinner includes the aperitif.
Why would you want to skip some meals? Actually I do not know, but people did request this in the past, so I just want to give you an easy way to manage it.
Anyway I recommend to attend to all of them, they are the "social time" of the meeting. A meeting without the opportunity to meet other entusiasts like us, is not a meeting anymore!
Finally you will be asked for a t-shirt size, which is a gift for our guests.
All the prices will be calculated on the actual number of guests.
Prices and payment method
As I wrote before, you can customise everthing so we don't have a fixed price this year, it depends on what you pick up.
Just to give you some rough figures, if you stay in a hotel you can range from €265 (1 person, 1 night in hotel, dinner + Bellagio lunch included), up to €670 of the most expensive bundle.
You can pay with a bank transfer or credit card. If you choose a bank transfer please do not charge the bank expenses to us.
Shipping cars from England
For those who don't feel like driving through all Europe, or just don't have enough time, we can arrange the shipping of your car from England to Italy. The cost is €1400 for the round trip (with significant discount if we can fill the transporter truck)
