After the end of the official program on Thursday 6 July a bus will bring all the participants who chose to attend the conference dinner to the conference dinner venue. On the way the bus will stop at 3 places of interest in Brussels and drop you off at the Atomium, where you will be offered a glass of bubbly. A seated dinner is waiting for you at Palace 10 of Brussels Expo. On the menu: some fabulous Belgian beer-tasting, traditional Belgian food and great stand-up comedy. Your children will enjoy a kid-friendly meal and have fun at a disco-party. 

After the dinner you can taste other beers and drinks from Belgium for a smile price in the lounge bar. 

Shuttle buses will take you back to the center of Brussels at the locations of the suggested hotels (see registration).
