Conference Dinner

Tuesday 27 September at 7 p.m.

The SUMMIT 2016 Conference Dinner is taking place at the Westerkerk, a historic site in the center of Amsterdam. Built in the Dutch Renaissance style, the beautiful old interior of the Western Church offers a special setting for a cozy atmosphere, highlighted by the chandeliers of burning candles and beautiful Duyschotorgel by Gerard de Lairesse painted shutters. A real eye catcher is the bright, undimmed sunlight pouring in from every angle via the 36 large windows and further enhanced by the monument’s whitewashed inner walls.
