Social Programme

The vast Speke Resort offers a variety of venues for social events conveniently located within the same site, but with different surroundings and character.

Cultural excursion


An excursion will take place before the conference, beginning mid-morning and including lunch. Details will be announced in due course.

Reception for Chairpersons & Speakers


The Stables Restaurant offers an ideal venue for the Speakers’ and Chairpersons’ dinner, before the conference begins. It has a large decked terrace, overlooking a lawn and scenic gardens with blossoming trees.

Welcome Reception


The Welcome Reception is planned to take place on a vast lawn, directly overlooking Lake Victoria; apéritifs will be followed by a buffet supper and musical entertainment.

Networking Party in the Exhibition


On the second afternoon of the conference, the exhibition area will remain open into the early evening for a Networking party, giving participants extra time to meet exhibitors and establish new business contacts. Drinks and light snacks will be served.
