The following social events are being organized by Exploration 07:
The Ice Breaker Reception (Sunday evening) will be held in the Exhibit Hall following the Workshops and Open Forum.
Socials (Monday afternoon, Tuesday afternoon) will coincide with the poster sessions, and will be held in both the poster and exhibit areas after the oral sessions are completed.
The KEGS Beer Bash (Monday evening) continues the tradition started at Exploration 97, and will be held at Joe Badali's restaurant down the street from the Royal York hotel at the close of the day.
The Technical Luncheon (Tuesday) will feature a three-course meal and renowned guest speaker.
The Gala Dinner (Tuesday evening) will feature a luxurious three-course meal in the Royal York's Concert Hall. The entertainment will include colourful reminiscences of the Exploration conferences from 67 to 97, and music appropriate to the periods.
This will provide an opportunity to honour the Geological Survey of Canada, organizer of the conferences in 67 and 77, and its notable pioneering geoscientists.
The Closing Reception (Wednesday evening) will follow the formal conclusion of the conference, and allow one final opportunity for delegates and exhibitors to interact before convening ten years hence in 2017.
