Welcome Reception following the Opening Ceremony

It has become a nice and proven tradition that all participants, speakers and exhibitors celebrate a reunion together in the industry exhibition after the Opening Ceremony. Of course, it will be like this again after a four-year break: We invite everyone to celebrate the opening of the EUROTOX 2023 Congress with drinks and local snacks, to see colleagues again or to make new contacts.

Congress Dinner

After three intense congress days and before the last day dawns, it’s time to celebrate! The EUROTOX 2023 Congress Dinner will take place in the Grand Union Hall of the Grand Hotel Union, the most traditional hotel in the Slovenian capital. The Art Nouveau building has hosted numerous celebrities from politics, show business and sports, including Queen Elizabeth II.
Spend a wonderful evening with delicious Slovenian dishes, music and entertainment. You haven’t been to Ljubljana if you haven’t been to the Grand Hotel Union!
