TAPPI has designated the Crowne Plaza Hotel as the host hotel for 2019 European PLACE Conference. This five star hotel is located in the heart of the central Boavista district and is a short walk from Porto Botanical Garden and concerts at the futuristic Casa da Música.

Lower hotel rates have been negotiated for the event and will include special amenities and/or discounts. Please be sure to send in your hotel reservation form before the cutoff date of 21 April 2019.
