ADCO Delegation Visit

Following an invitation from Partex, an ADCO delegation including its football team, was in Portugal from the 11th to the 18th of October 2011. Visits were organized to the Partex Lisbon Office, for a meeting on issues of interest for the activities of Partex in ADCO, to Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade (ISQ), a partner of Partex with involvement in ADCO activities related to its area of expertise and to the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the shareholder of Partex, where the delegation had the opportunity to visit the museum and its art collection.

The sport side of this event included visits to the facilities of Benfica, Académica and Porto, as well as football matches between ADCO and teams of Benfica, Académica and Partex. It is worth mentioning that fair play was the highlight of those matches, in which the final score was the least relevant detail.

The presence of Eusébio and Rui Costa, two world football legends, made this event even more memorable for all the participants.

The organization of this event had the kind support and direct involvement of H.E. Saquer Nasser Alraisi, the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates in Portugal, a fact that was appreciated by all the participants. The support of ISQ, Benfica, Académica and Porto needs to be stressed, as it was essential to ensure the success of the event.
