Social programme

Welcome Reception (Wednesday)

The reception at the end of the first conference day will be held in the A-kerk. This church is one of the top locations in Groningen and has a history that reaches back to before the 13th century.  

Dinner-Matching (Wednesday)

On the first day of the conference we offer the opportunity to have dinner with other, random, conference participants. It’s an easy way to meet new people! We will make reservations at various downtown restaurants, and you can register yourself for a restaurant of your choice at the registration desk of the conference. A table will be reserved for the conference at the given time/location. Obviously, you do have to pay for your own dinner. We will indicate the price range of the selected restaurants (low/mid/high).

In order to know how many tables we should reserve, we will ask you in the registration form whether you are interested to use this service. You can make your final decision on the day itself.

Conference Dinner (Thursday)

On Thursday June 25th, the conference dinner will be at the lovely “Rietschans” restaurant at Lake Paterswolde. Prior to the conference we will have some social activities (including the traditional Living Knowledge soccer game) at the location. Bus transport is included in your ticket, as we go a little outside of the city.

Friday Night Fever (Friday)

As the conference marks the 21th anniversary of the Living Knowledge Network, we added a social event (“after party”) on Friday evening to the programme. Continue chatting to old and new friends and maybe even do a little dancing (without having to get up early for next day’s sessions ;-)).

Location: Platform Theatre. This centrally located venue has a bar space next to a dance hall. So we can sit back, relax, share stories, or enjoy dancing to a DJ or a band! We are currently working on a nice programme. With your ticket you get coins for your first two drinks. After that, you can either use a bank card with maestro logo to pay at the bar (pin or even contactless), or cash. Unfortunately, they cannot accept credit cards.
