Tuesday, 12 September: Birthday Party and Awards

ESOMAR is 70 - which means it's time to celebrate! This year we promised something different from our traditional sit down Awards Dinner evening... And we think we've done just that...

Introducing our 70th Birthday Party and Awards food festival evening at De Kromhouthal!

Held on Tuesday 12 September, we'll take you from the Congress venue to De Kromhouthal, just a short distance away (buses depart at 19:00 - ask at the registration desk for details of departure point), for an evening you won't forget!

Start your night with some drinks as you watch the very best of our industry awarded with a number of ESOMAR's prestigious awards. Then, prepare for the unexpected as an evening of food, drinks and entertainment is revealed.

Picture live music, DJ's, cartoonists, surprise acts and more - and that's just the entertainment. But, wait until you hear about the food! We'll have food stands offering BBQ food, a crab stall, potato truck, taco stand, hotdogs, food wall, pick your own salad and more! We don't want to give too much away...

Naturally, the night ends on the dancefloor.

Dress code: no formal attire required, anything goes!

Please note the format of our awards dinner this year is not a formal sit-down dinner.


19:30 - 00:30
Buses depart at 19:00. Ask at the registration desk for details of departure point.
