 Annual Congress Dinner & Dance

Thursday 27 September 2018

Start Time: 1945 for tours of the Storehouse, 2000 for drinks reception

Location: Guinness Storehouse

Cost: £85

The drinks reception will be from 2000 with a call to dinner at 2030. 

The much anticipated Association of Anaesthetists' annual dinner and dance will be held in the historic and impressive Guinness Storehouse, a seven storied building which brings to life the history of the famous Guinness brand. Often billed as Ireland’s number one visitor attraction, the delegates will have a quick tour of the exhibits through the building, which is shaped like a giant pint glass, and reach the drinks reception at the gravity bar, offering panoramic 360° views of Dublin. The Arrol suite will then host the 3 course meal with wine and entertainment where they can dance away till the wee hours of the morning. Please join us for this opportunity to socialise with your fellow delegates in a memorable setting.

The dress code is black tie or cocktail attire. Decorations may be worn.

 Parent and Baby Room

Room: Wicklow Meeting Room 4, Second floor

Following the success of the parent and baby facility at Association of Anaesthetists' events, we will again be offering a Parent and Baby Room at the Annual Congress this year. We are arranging for a resource room where the lectures from the conference’s main auditorium will be streamed so that you can catch up on the conference proceedings whilst looking after your children within the comfort of an informal setting.
