Sunday 30 April 2017

Welcome Reception, 17:30 - 18:30 hrs

The Organising Committee invites all delegates and their accompanying family and/or friends to to the Welcome Reception immediately after the opening ceremony. A perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones.

Buffet Dinner 18:30 - 20:00 hrs

Price per person: € 35 for conference delegate; additional ticket for accompanying friend and/or family: € 45

The Welcome Reception will be followed by an Indonesian buffet served in one of the Conference Centre’s restaurants. Back in the 17th century the Netherlands was one of the major colonial powers ruling the world’s spice trade. The jewel in the Netherlands’ crown was Indonesia and, when the Dutch East India Company went bankrupt in the 19th century, Indonesia became a Dutch colony. Today Indonesian food is an integral component of the Dutch kitchen. The buffet will offer a wide variety of meat, fish and vegetable dishes.

Conference Party, 20:00 - 00:00 hrs

Price per person: € 55 for conference delegate; additional ticket for accompanying friend and/or family: € 65

After three days of serious talks it’s party time. To make it easy for you to come and go as you please the Party will be in the Conference Centre. There will be plenty to eat and drink, live music by the "Blue Friends Jazz Band"  to listen to or, if you’re feeling energetic, dance to and plenty of space to just sit, relax and enjoy the atmosphere
