This year, the organization of the conference is offering two different types of banquet dinner. A dinner at the museum and a party-boat sail in the canals.

Dinner at the museum .... [At the Railway Museum (Spoorwegmuseum)]
The ICDE24 Organization committee would like to ask the honor of your presence in a sit-down dinner at the Railway Museum (Spoorwegmuseum) in Utrecht. Come to have a dinner in a unique environment among the trains, while talking to fellow researchers, catching up with old connections, or making news. The museum is located at Maliebaanstation 16, 3581 XW Utrecht. Participants can arrive to the museum on foot from Kinepolis. It takes only 30 min and the route is through the city, allowing you to admire its style and the lovely canal that goes through it.

Dancing on the Canals ... [ On Boat 8 ]
The organizing committee would like to invite you for a unique experience of a buffet (walking) dinner on the party-boat BOAT 8. Enjoy your dinner in the boat lounges or the deck outside under the music of the DJ ... and maybe dance as the boat sails through the canals. Transportation to and from the docks is done by public transportation. Participants are adviced to start leaving from the venue right after the end of the last presentation session of the day, and to have purchased their public transportation ticket in advance. This can be done at the the ticket machines at the train station. At the station there is also a ticket office (ov-chipkart). Instead of a two-way ticket it is also possible to buy a day-ticket with a minor difference in price. The dock where the boat leaves is at Rooseveltlaan 1100, 3526 BT Utrecht. To get there one can get from the train station the bus number 7 or the tram 20/21 that both leave from very close to Kinepolis (see map). In the case of the tram, you need to step out at station Vasco da Gamalaan and walk from there. In the case of the bus number 7, one needs to step out at station Woonboulevard.
