Opening Ceremony and Welcome Reception
Thursday, 21 November | 18:30
Durban City Hall
The Opening Ceremony and Welcome Reception are sponsored by the eThekwini Municipality (City of Durban) and will take place at the impressive and historic Durban City Hall. Despite being more than a century old, this neo-Baroque building designed by Stanley Hudson holds its own among the surrounding modern skyscrapers.
Guests will be transported by coach from the Durban ICC to the City Hall for an evening of uniquely South African cuisine and vibrant entertainment. After the formalities of the Opening Ceremony, the Welcome Reception promises the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues from around the world.
Saturday, 23 November | 19:00
Durban ICC, Hall 4 & 5
AORTIC 2013 delegates and accompanying persons will have the opportunity to enjoy a melting pot of African culture at the Gala Dinner. Afro-operatic pop sensations the Gugulethu Tenors will entertain guests with their signature blend of contemporary and subtle ethnic musical elements. Later on in the evening, DJ Romeo Mthaba will open the dance floor and get guests moving to a selection of well-loved dance hits and African rhythms.
The dress for the evening is semi-formal or traditional. A buffet meal and beverages will be served.
Please note that attendance requires the purchase of a ticket; the Gala Dinner is not included in the registration fee.
