EADSM annual meeting

September 21st, 2017: general programme

September 23rd, 2017 p.m.: accreditation entry level exam

Meeting venue: La Réserve, Elizabetlaan 160, 8300 Knokke-Heist, Belgium (limited availability of hotel accommodation – please contact the hotel directly). There are many hotels within walking distance that offer decent accommodation. A list of such can be found by clicking on this link. Please do note that you need to arrange accommodation on your own initiative and that accommodation is not included in the registration fee for the meetings.

Attendees of the EADSM Annual Meeting can best travel by train from the Brussels airport (Zaventem) to Knokke train station; travelling by taxi is rather expensive. You will need to change trains once on this journey. EADSM will assist you in working out and providing you with a detailed itinerary (for an example click this link). To this purpose please provide EADSM with all your flight details after registration. EADSM can then assist you in buying the required tickets (separate invoicing) and send them to you by email prior to your departure.

If you want to plan your itinerary on your own, please feel free to do so via this link to go to the Belgian National Railway website for journey details and buying tickets (not included in the registration fee).
