All delegates are welcome to attend the social functions as indicated below.  There will be no extra charge to attend the functions, but we would appreciate it if you could book the functions you will attend on the registration form.

Please note that due to the remoteness of the venue, it is not possible to provide strictly Halaal meals prepared by a Halaal certified kitchen, and also not kosher meals. The hotel does use Halaal certified meat. Delegates following a kosher diet are wekcome to bring their own food and arrange for the hotel to heat it.

Accompanying people are welcome to attend the functions with delegates at an additional charge per function on condition that the functions are booked and paid for in advance. Bookings can be done on the registration form.
