Opening night

Opening reception

Date: Wednesday, 23. October

Time: 20.00 – 23.00

The opening reception will traditionally be held on Wednesday, 23. October. After a full day in pre-convention meetings and workshops, this evening event is a great chance to gain a first impression of who else has come to Rotterdam for PLDC.

While the atmosphere of the evening is casual, the venue the organisers have secured for the opening night is a traditional, elegant building: the Hulstkamp Building, which dates back to 1888. It is one of the few historic buildings in Rotterdam still in its original state, having survived the bombings in Rotterdam in the Second World War.

All full conference tickets holders, or ticket holders for at least the Thursday conference day, are welcome to join the opening night for first discussions, and to mix and mingle with friends, colleagues and peers.

Important: You will need to make your way to the Hulstkamp Building yourself. There is no shuttle offered from Ahoy or the Partner Hotels.

Address: Hulstkamp Building, Maaskade 119, 3071 NK Rotterdam
