Congress Dinner & Social Evening*

DATE:        Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022
TIME:        19:30-22:30
VENUE:    Finca Mas Solers

Finca Mas Solers is a Catalan mansion in the late nineteenth-century Renaissance style that, during its golden age, housed the former Gran Casino Barcelona. Now you can relive all that glamour by joining our Congress Gala Dinner in the charming gardens and spaces of the beautiful building!

The Estate Mas Solers is steeped in history and tradition. During the 13th century, the mansion served as a home to Augustinian monks. During the late 19thcentury, it was purchased and remodeled by Manuel Girona, who was a banker. The ownership of the estate was then passed onto Eduard Maristany, also known as the Marques d’Argentera in 1918, who is responsible for expanding and designing Finca Mas Solers into the sophisticated mansion it is today. The Estate Mas Solers is truly a venue steeped in history because during the Spanish Civil War it was used as a hospital for both civilians and soldiers. However, the estate was returned to the ownership of the Marquis once the war was over. His son inherited the property, and later on, it was passed down to his grandson until it was eventually sold to the Gran Casino Barcelona in 1977. The purchase signified the beginning of the best years of the estate as it became famous for being an elegant location. The casino was transferred to Catalan in 1999, and now Finca Mas Solers operates as a stunning venue for all kinds of celebrations.

Buses will leave in front of the Meliá Sitges hotel and congress venue at 19:00 sharp.

Since part of the dinner may be outdoors, it is wise to dress accordingly. It may cool off in the evening.

Dinner Party (from 22:30-01:00)
Delegates are also invited to the party after dinner where drinks are at their own expense. Transportation back to the venue is provided. Buses will not leave back until 1 o’clock. Delegates who do not want to stay that long will have to join the bus back at 22:30 or order a taxi.

*Entrance to the congress dinner will only be permitted for delegates with a valid ticket. Tickets (€ 75) can be booked upfront or on-site at the registration desk (upon availability).
