Social Event

We foresee a break enabling to go to the hotel between the presentations and the evening event. The event starts at 17h .

We are guided in Mechelen and will receive a global and original view of many facets of the city. 

We will visit the centre of the city by walking.

The visit includes a short break in a typical café.

At 20 h we will have dinner.

Please consider appropriated shoes and cloths. We are a small community and formal dressing is not required.

We hope you will enjoy this unconventional look on the city.
