Social Events

Europe has many different regional cultures and customs, and still we need to work together in the EU frameworks. Already at the start of EuroAsiaSPI² in 1994 it was decided to place the conference  in a different region every year and that the local host organises social events that help us to learn about the hosting culture, the traditions, history and the local food. This has a large influence on what social events EuroAsiaSPI² offers.

Edinburgh, "the Athens of the North" is a lovely town with interesting old and new architecture.

Social Event at the First Conference Day (18.9.2019)

 

For the Social Event at the First Conference Day (18.9.2019) we will gather for a ceilidh,

the traditional Gaelic folk music and dancing.  Therefore we  have an extraordinary auditorium space,

the Ghillie Dhu, always in the city center, close to Princes Street, just behind and below the Castle.

Built in 1842 as a church, the building has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is

now the preferred party location.
