There’s a packed schedule of presentations and workshops in store at EFRR 2017, but rest assured, we’ve left plenty of time for evening entertainment and socialising.
Some highlights of this year’s congress include:
- 24 May – Welcome Reception at Glasgow Caledonian University (free to all delegates)
- 25 May – Civic Reception at Glasgow City Chambers hosted by The Right Honourable Lord Provost of Glasgow (free, pre-registration necessary)
- 25 May – Scottish ceilidh evening; dance and dine in the Banqueting Hall of Glasgow City Chambers, one of Scotland’s most beautiful and historic buildings (£45 / £30 students)
- 26 May – An evening free to explore Glasgow and take in some of the vibrant culture, dining and entertainment the city has to offer. See the People Make Glasgow website for information on the best places to eat and drink and what’s happening.
This year, the 14th edition of the European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation will be honoured inside the hallowed halls of Glasgow City Chambers, a jewel in the crown of the city. Please join us on the evening of 25 May for a civic reception hosted by the Right Honourable Lord Provost of Glasgow and attended by all EFRR delegates — a chance to celebrate your participation in our memorable European congress.
In addition, tickets are now available for a traditional Scottish ceilidh event, beginning right after the reception. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to socialise, dine, and dance the night away beneath the glittering chandeliers of one of Scotland’s most historic landmarks, and to fully immerse yourself in the culture of Glasgow. For the dancing, we would recommend comfortable clothing that allows room to move. Ladies may prefer flat shoes over high heel ones, while narrow skirts are definitely best avoided!
If you’ve already registered for the conference, you can log in here to add a ceilidh ticket to your registration. We also have discounted tickets for students, to encourage as many people as possible to join us for a celebration destined to live long in our collective memories.
Naturally, the four days of the congress will feature numerous opportunities to mingle with your fellow delegates at regular networking breaks and lunches, designed to stimulate conversation and forge new connections.
