Social Activities

The annual IMTA Conference is a scientific meeting accompanied by several social activities. These include a 'Meet and Greet' welcome reception and a closing Conference Dinner, which are free of charge for the registered conference participants. In addition, a few other activities are proposed as opportunities for you to discover more of the host country. As these activities don’t belong to the Conference itself, separate fees may apply.

Meet & Greet Welcome Reception
Monday October 9th
(No fee for conference delegates, 35  EUR for guests)

For your convenience our welcome reception will be held with the registration on Monday October 9th, 2017 at the the Mezenerkaserne, Bern. Enjoy some delicious refreshments after your registration and catch up with your friends of the IMTA community.

Conference Venue

Tuesday October 10th
(No fee for conference delegates, 35 EUR for guests)

The International Beer Testing Association (IBTA) meeting will be held on Tuesday October 10th, 2017. The location for this event is the Champions Lounge of the legendary Stade de Suisse, only a few walking minutes away from the conference venue. Attendants are expected to bring some typical beer or other beverages from their home country, region or town. This is the chance to acquaint your international colleagues with the most appetizing beverages your country has to offer. We’ll make sure that you, too, will get to know and enjoy some of our Swiss national products.

Spouse’s Program & Last Day Activities

Last day activities (October 13th, 2017) will run simultaneously and thus you’ll only be able to participate in one. We will arrange a varied number of tours to cover a wide scope of potential interests and personal preferences. Information about the spouse’s program as well as last day activities will be posted in July. Then you’ll have the opportunity to make up your plans. Registration and payments for these activities will have to be done on-site (cash only) at the registration/conference desk.
