Conference Dinner (Tuesday 22 October)

Dinner at the Chapel

IMC’s conference dinner will take place at the Hotel Arena in the chapel, which is in the historic part of the hotel building. Built between 1886 and 1888, the building originally housed a Roman Catholic Girl’s Orphanage. The building has seen many uses over its rich history and now houses a four-star luxury hotel. The chapel, which once housed religious services, first transformed into a night club, and is now a premium event location in the heart of Amsterdam. For more information on the chapel, you can visit the hotel’s website.

Dinner will be seated with a three-course set menu that takes any dietary requirements you have informed us about into account (see below). Soft drinks, beer and wine are provided free of charge until the end of the dinner at approximately 23:00h.

There will be a guarded cloak room provided, which closes at 23:30h.

Admission to the dinner is based on possession of an IMC badge, those of you who are bringing a plus one will receive an extra dinner badge. Therefore, please remember to bring your badge.
