GALA DINNER | Saturday, 21 November

The AORTIC 2015 Gala Dinner will be held in the Royal Ballroom of the conference venue, the Palais des Congrès de Marrakech. Magical, magnificent and authentic; the Gala Dinner will be all that. The entertainment will be enthralling and the dance floor will be opened after the formalities.

Please note that attendance requires the purchase of a ticket; the Gala Dinner is not included in the registration fee.

The Gala Dinner ticket price includes beverages, a buffet dinner of spectacular Moroccan cuisine, and pastries with tea. But it is after dinner that the show really takes off, with song and dance.

The dress for the evening is semi-formal or traditional.
