The Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium took place in De Doelen, Rotterdam, 26 – 28 April 2018. Its organiser, the Oral Reconstruction Foundation is committed to science and further education for the good of the patient. The Foundation invests in research, supports interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and promotes training and further education in dental implantology and related fields. The theme of the congress was: The Future of the Art of Implant Dentistry. On Friday evening a big party for the participants was organised.
Organising a party for 1’200 participants in a historic church in the middle of Rotterdam during national holiday presents a number of challenges. Set-up had to be planned carefully due to the historic building and because the event took place at King’s Day, an occassion where thousands of people gathered in the city centre. A security concept had to be established in order to prevent the public from entering the church.
HOW CONGREX MASTERED IT
A detailed event and security concept has been established in cooperation with a local event and catering agency. The layout of the party had to be planned very carefully as the church offers only one large room but the aim was to create different areas for the participants, like a dance floor, bars and lounge areas. This was a huge challenge for the sound technicians on-site, which was professionally mastered. To celebrate the special King’s Day we organised a fake king and queen to welcome the participants. All attendees received orange gadgets and danced their feet off until late after midnight.
