Dear Zones 33 and 34 District RI Convention Promotion Chair and/or District Governor,

Please forward this letter of invitation to all of your fellow Rotarians in your district and clubs to join us in São Paulo.

São Paulo is the main gateway for foreign tourists into the country and according to some organizations like Trip Advisor; it has surpassed Rio as a destination.  Why?

  • 90 city parks and theme parks – Ibirapuera Park
  • Largest zoo in Latin America
  • 9 soccer stadiums
  • 53 shopping malls as well as shops and street fairs
  • 3 taxis per thousand people (compared to 1.5 in New York City)
  • Specialized museums (many are free) such as the soccer museum

Online registration is available on the convention website at:  http://www.riconvention.org/en/2015/Pages/ridefault.aspx.

São Paulo’s Top 10 Restaurants – In this cosmopolitan city you can taste everything from modern Brazilian cooking to top-class sushi and classic Italian dishes.  There’s a real buzz about São Paulo. With 19 million inhabitants this huge and sprawling metropolis is not only the third largest city in the world but a remarkably cosmopolitan one, and that makes for very good eating indeed. The vibrant food culture is bolstered by a large Italian and Middle Eastern community, and there’s an even larger Japanese population.  So unsurprisingly you’ll find great pizzas and stellar sushi. But there’s also an up-and-coming wave of young Brazilian chefs who are cooking up a storm and bringing modern techniques to bear on traditional dishes. For the foodie, São Paulo is a very exciting city indeed. – Charles Champion

Please continue to promote the convention in your upcoming district newsletters, club meetings, district events, PETS and other communications including Facebook.  The convention website is www.riconvention.org.  Please be advised that there is a personal information sharing option on the RI Convention Registration form.  If this box is checked, the registrant’s information will not show up on our registration reports.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like additional information.  Looking forward to seeing you in São Paulo.

Thanks much!
