The congress dinner will take place at the historical Palais de la Bourse. It was relatively difficult to find a suitable location for the Congress Evening & Dance Party. The Palais de la Bourse or Palais du Commerce is a building located in the quarter Les Cordeliers, in 2nd arrondissement of Lyon. It currently houses the headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Lyon. The decoration of the building, both in its facades that its interior, reflects the destination of the building : the statues of Justice, the Temperance, Agriculture, Trade and Industry

For our Congress Evening and Dance Party we will use the entire building. On the ground floor you can find the main room La Corbeille and the room Agents de change. The main room Corbeille will be the stage for the Diploma Ceremony and for the DJ after the walking dinner. 
On the first level you can find 4 different rooms: Lumière, Tony Garnier, Ampère and Jacquard. These rooms are the more quiet rooms to sit and relax and enjoy talking with friends. 
Use this opportunity to discover this beautiful building in the center of Lyon!

The evening will start at 19.30 hrs at this time a flute of champagne including canapés will be served. Once everyone is enjoying a drink and some food the diploma ceremony will start. Around 20.30 hrs the walking dinner will start. The different food buffets and life cooking station can be found in all the rooms of the Palais. Important remark, this evening is not a seated dinner but a walking dinner. Please note that ticket price includes drinks during the entire evening.

The congress evening and dance party was only made possible by the generous support of Hill’s Pet Nutrition, platinum sponsor of the ECVIM-CA Congress.
