The first hotel, Palmela Castle Pousada was sold out on Feb. 14. The second
Hotel, the S. Filipe Fortress Pousada in nearby Setúbal, sold out yesterday,
Given the high demand we are experiencing for this conference, we went to
great lengths to find a third hotel to accommodate everyone that wants to
attend Palmela 2011 - The Conference from June 1 to 5, 2011.
The new hotel is the Palmela Village Golf
although not up there in the Castle, it's located only 10 minutes away from
the village on a recently built golf resort.
We hope this new option with up to 100 rooms available will settle
everyone's need for a room to attend Palmela 2011.
*Palmela 2011 Exhibitions:*
Several teams are working on many different exhibitions and we expect to
start announce the exhibitions in detail next week.
We have planned the following Palmela 2011 exhibitions to open to public on
June 2 and 3, 2011:
- Gigapixel Challenge.
- Masters of Contemporary Panoramic Photography.
- Panos for the People group exhibition (distributed across several
places on Palmela Old Town).
- My Planets (stereographic projection group exhibition).
- Three individual exhibitions from renowned panoramic artists
For some of the exhibitions we will launch in the coming days a request
for submissions from the panoramic community.
Everyone will have equal chance to participate, independently of being an

Exhibitions will open on the first week of June, remain on display during
the summer and close on August 31.
