Another networking highlight is the traditional congress dinner. The Congress dinner will take place in a unique venue in the city of Marseille, Palais du Pharo.
The Pharo promontory was previously called the Tête de More. Pharo is named after the bay further to the west. The “Farot” was the hillock separating the bay from the open sea. The decision to build an imperial residence in Marseille was made by Prince-Président Louis-Napoléon who, during his trip in September 1852, commissioned the architect Vaucher to find a location and draw up plans for the palace. Napoleon III’s architect, Lefuel, took on the project and the City decided to donate the chosen land, the Réserve and the Pharo. The Emperor never stayed here. After Napoleon III’s death, Empress Eugénie, the sole heir of the Pharo, gave it to the city. The inside of the Pharo Palace was then refurbished for its reincarnation as a school of medicine in 1904. Pharo Palace now hosts meetings, fairs and conferences
It will be an unforgettable evening with great food, company and entertainment. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
The Congress Dinner is not included in the registration fee. Tickets are €95 per participant and can be purchased during the online registration process.
