THE SOCIAL ANGLE

 

Welcome Reception on June 11, 2006 (included in the registration fee):

Amid the green lawns and blossoming rose gardens of the largest hotel garden complex in Istanbul lies the largest and most beautiful swimming pool of this city.

Istanbul Hilton was built in 1954 when the total population of the city was around one million inhabitants and Istanbulites enjoyed vast playgrounds, orchards, open air casinos and parks. Hence, Istanbul Hilton occupies gardens that used to be a well-known park. All of the participants are invited to the welcome reception organized at the hotel poolside under the shade and whisper of cypress trees and the scent of the rose gardens that surround the pool.

 

Place and Time: Istanbul Hilton Hotel at 19:00

EX-02 Conference Banquet at Esma Sultan Mansion on June 13, 2006 (Included in full registration fee, for other registrants $110.- ):

Dominating an exclusive corner on the European shores of the Bosphorus as if to control the flow of traffic on the Bosphorus Bridge spanning the European and Asiatic Continents, the Esma Sultan Yalısı, built in the 18th century for an extraordinary Ottoman princess, Esma Sultan, as her personal residence, remains as a magnificent ruin in the quaintly colorful Bosphorus neighborhood of Ortaky.

 

The grandiose walls, a silent cry to a glorious past, are surrounded by a wide garden. Inside the walls, modern architecture has erected a steel and glass panelling. Both the garden and the interior serve as perfect venues for indoor and outdoor dining and entertainment.

You will enjoy good wining and dining at the accompaniment of live music under the star spangled skies of Istanbul...
