SOCIAL PROGRAMME

We take great pride in the scientific excellence of our invited lecturers, panels, side events and authors of papers included in Special and regular Conferences sessions at the SDEWES Conference, but there is another program that truly makes this Conference complete, and this is our Social programme.

From 1st – 6th October 2019, you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy the company of top experts in the field of sustainable development from all around the world and, through our social programme, exchange ideas in a more informal way, while enjoying the beautiful sites and history of Dubrovnik. And for the numerous Game of Thrones fans, this will be a unique opportunity to see King’s Landing from the sea.

Social programme schedule:

Welcome reception

1st October (Tuesday) – 18:00 – 20:00 h

Registration will start at 14:00 h, so stop by at the Valamar Lacroma hotel businees centre during the day to register and join us for welcome drinks where we will formally start the Conference.

Prepare for having wonderful memories from the SDEWES2019 social event as we have a very special day planned for our conference participants on Thursday, 3rd October.

We will head out to sea and after a spectacular view of the King’s Landing and spend a beautiful and relaxing day on a boat or bus trip to Cavtat. After enjoying the blue, shimmery Adriatic unique sceneries, we will head back to Sheraton hotel where the SDEWES conference dinner will be held (the excursion goes directly to the dinner venue so dress code is smart casual).
