Cocktail Dinatoire Reception, Nuit en Blanc

The Windsor Ballroom
Friday, June 28
6:30 - 9:00 PM

Take this opportunity to dress in white to celebrate the late sunsets and early sunrises of the last week of June in our beautiful city. We hope you wear a white outfit (casual to dressy), but even just one white item adds to our festive theme. Le Dîner en Blanc (the white-dress dinner), an outdoor dinner party in a public space set up as a temporary chic dining area, originated in Paris in 1988 and has spread around the globe. Now 80 cities in 30 countries host it.

Note: This reception is a 5-minute walk from the conference hotel. Delegates walk to and from the reception. If you require transportation, please stop by the information desk and we will gladly arrange it for you.
