The Italian Riviera, where the Alps and Apennines cascade into the Mediterranean.

Portofino is defined by its pastel seaside towns nestled among a coastline of sheer rugged cliffs—including the colourful villages of Cinque Terre and the stylish resort towns such as Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure

Using Santa Margherita Ligure as our base, we will explore the five fishing villages that are Cinque Terre: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

A UNESCO heritage site, Cinque Terre is rooted in antiquity, with the oldest of the villages founded in AD 643. The villages have slowly carved their way into the cliffs ever since.

Also close to Santa Margherita is Portofino, which has long been a popular destination for the rich and famous. Once an ancient Roman colony, Portofino has been ruled by the French, English, Spanish, Austrians— even marauding bands of 16thcentury pirates. With a decidedly romantic and affluent aura, and natural beauty, it is easy to understand why it is one of the most photographed villages of the Ligurian coast

CPE Conference in Portofino

Where the Alps and Apennines cascade into the Mediterranean.

The Italian Riviera is defined by its pastel seaside towns nestled among a coastline of sheer rugged cliffs—including the colourful villages of Cinque Terre and the stylish resort towns such as Portofino, Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure.

Using Santa Margherita as our base, we will explore Liguria including the five fishing villages that are Cinque Terre: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. A UNESCO heritage site, Cinque Terre is rooted in antiquity, with the oldest of the villages founded in AD 643. The villages have slowly carved their way into the cliffs ever since.

The academic and professional program has always been the centrepiece of our conferences, but an equally important part is the networking activities we organise outside the formal program.  Over the years many delegates have forged professional links with other practitioners arising out of meeting for the first time at the conferences. The informal networks established have led to a mutual referring of clients and, through being aware of other practitioners’ specialties; practitioners have gained access to professional resources which previously would have been either inaccessible or unknown. Delegates have also reported that the informal interaction with other delegates has led to the cross-pollination of ideas, exchange of methodologies and an enhancement of professional camaraderie among fellow practitioners.
