e2002 - Social Events

Conference delegates often regret later that they were too busy to notice their surroundings. There is a tour programme for the following weekend that will give you the opportunity to see the sights of Prague and the local countryside. Another benefit is that you can take advantage of cheap APEX flights, by staying over a Saturday night, and many hotels offer reasonable weekend rates. During the three days of the conference there is a full programme of tours, so why not take the chance to make e2002 a really valuable and enjoyable break for you and your partner.

Further information about the social programme and booking arrangements and conditions can found on the site agent's (La Bohéme) web site. To link to this site see below.

Gala Reception

The Minorite Monastery of St James, which with the adjacent church forms one of the most interesting sites of old Prague, combines architectural styles from Gothic to Baroque. It is closed to the general public but, after reconstruction work in January 2002, was opened for cultural activities. It was the venue for:

  • The Coronation in 1311 of John of Luxembourg
  • The Wedding and Banquet of John of Luxembourg and Elizabeth of Pfemyslids
  • The issuing of the Prague privileges by Charles IV

The site has also been chosen as the venue for the e2002 Gala Reception on Thursday 17 October.

Partners Programme

Partners may attend any buffet luncheon and the Gala Reception at special prices that are heavily subsidised to less than half price: 10 euros for each lunch and 30 euros for the Reception.
