Tournament Focus: Winter 2009

Madeira Congress

The Bridge Overseas Madeira Congress takes place from the 9th to 14th February 2010. The venue is the 5* Pestana Casino Park Hotel, Funchal.

Set in its own beautiful gardens, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the capital, Funchal, the hotel boasts an unrivalled position with views across the sea and mountains. Designed by the world famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, this spacious newly furbished hotel provides high standards of service and facilities, making it one of the most popular properties on the island.

Funchal town has a great maritime history and is now a vibrant centre with bars restaurants, beautiful gardens and a world famous fish market.

The town will be even more alive than is normal on the Saturday of the Bridge Congress as it is ‘Mardi Gras’ and what is described as one of the best carnivals in Europe will take place. The bridge programme will be reorganised to allow all to witness a day to remember.

Truly an event not to be missed.
