Evening at SPODEK
Wednesday, 18 October
19:00 - 24:00

The conference banquet on Wednesday, 18 October will be held in one of the most recognizable buildings in Poland, which is the "Spodek" in Katowice. It is a building designed in 1959 as one of the world's first buildings with a roof realized in the tensegrity concept. Weighing 300 tons, the steel dome structure is connected to the outer steel ring by 120 load-bearing cables in the form of rod-and-cord trusses on which the roofing is mounted. From the outside, the main hall's shape is somewhat reminiscent of a flying saucer (the "UFO"), which resulted from the combination of the two primary functions planned for the facility: a sports hall and a performance hall.

In addition to the exquisite menu served to the tables during this festive meeting, we have planned a number of spectacular for you, including the musical setting of the event, which will be provided by the Warsaw University of Technology Entertainment Orchestra, The Engineers Band.

In a short program, a performance by the Song and Dance Ensemble, also from the Warsaw University of Technology, will introduce guests to Polish national dances while presenting beautiful folk costumes from various regions of our country.

If you wish to purchase banquet tickets, you may indicate this on your registration form. The conference registration fee does not include a banquet ticket and there are a limited number of tickets available.
