At the end of the congress you are more than welcome to join the closing ceremony at the Nemo Science Center. For this dinner party the dresscode is Tenue de Ville (Business smart).
‘Tenue de ville’ is a French dress code; it means literally town or city clothing. ‘Tenue de ville’ dates back to the turn of 19th and 20th century, like all dress codes as e.g. ‘black tie’ and ‘white tie’, which are more festive. In those days one had to dress up when you – coming from the country side – were going in to town. No brown or green tweeds for gentlemen as well as no blouses and skirts for the ladies. Gentlemen were awaited in a dark suit and ladies appeared in an elegant dress.
Ever since the dress code ”tenue de ville” developed into the formal ‘dark- or lounge suit’ – with tie of course - for the gentlemen and an elegant – not festive or low necked – dress or ensemble for the ladies. And since Angela Merkel , Hillary Clinton and Aung San Suu Kyi an ensemble may include – elegant and long - pants.
Costs of this event are included in the congress fee.
