DATE Party | Networking Event

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The DATE Party traditionally states one of the highlights of the DATE week. As one of the main networking opportunities during the DATE week, it is a perfect occasion to meet friends and colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying local amenities. It is scheduled on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, from 19:30 to 23:00.

This year, it will take place in one of Dresden’s most recognized museum locations, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden, which attracts over 300,000 international visitors per year.

The Deutsches Hygiene-Museum was founded in 1912 and is a unique museum location. Unlike its traditional name, the museum offers nowadays not just hygiene in the medical or colloquial way. Moreover, visitors may explore in the permanent collection “Adventure Human Being” how people shape their environment and affect society as a physical and intellectual being, and how they are influenced by it vice versa. The museum is located close to the city center and will offer a special setting for the DATE Party 2018.

Please kindly note that it is not a seated dinner.

All delegates, exhibitors and their guests are invited to attend the party. Please note that entrance is only possible with a valid party ticket. Each full conference registration includes a ticket for the DATE Party (which needs to be booked during the online registration process though). Additional tickets can be purchased on-site at the registration desk (subject to availability of tickets). Price for extra ticket: 70 € per person.

How to get there: A bus shuttle from the congress centre to the Hygiene-Museum Dresden will be organized, starting at 19:00 from the main entrance of the ICC Dresden.

Afterwards, busses will be at your disposal for getting back to the city centre, at the following times: 22:30 and 23:00. You will have the choice between a bus that stops at "Postplatz" and a bus that will stop at the Maritim Hotel & International Congress Centre Dresden.
