If you did not get a seat to the Congress Dinner

Due to the very high interest in the congress dinner we have decided to open up a waiting list for those congress participants that did not get a seat. If you are interested in signing up on the list please send an e-mail to wcere2018@meetx.se.. Since we cannot guarantee that there will be seats available later, we have decided to open up for 100 additional guests that can come after the dinner to enjoy the music and dancing later in the evening. The tickets to the “after dinner party” will be free of charge and released in the morning of Wednesday June 27’th at the registration desk. First come first served.

Join the Social event at Handels right after the last parallel session of the day. Enjoy refreshments and a vegetarian meal complemented with some traditional seafood.

In the evening, you can choose from various events. Listen, mingle or dance to live music and DJ, join the open mic or participate in the card game Climate Call to get to know the climate impact from our everyday life – or go to Haga where one of the evening games of the World cup will be shown in the lecture hall Sappören.

We look forward to celebrating WCERE 2018 with you!
