Rodizio Conference Dinner on 09-Mar-2016, 19.30-23.30

The conference dinner is offered to you in a slightly unusual fashion: Rodizio is the brasilian version of a Barbeque. You and the other guests will be standing -not sitting- at tables, cortadors (waiters) will be constantly around with knives and a skewer, on which they have speared various kinds of grilled beef, pork or chicken for you. A self-serve buffett offering a variety of fresh salads, bread etc. rounds up the meal. Beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks are also included.

So, this Rodizio is a dinner in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, ideal for changing place during the dinner and networking while enyoing nice food and drinks - instead of being nailed down on a fixed seat at a dinner table.

  • The conference dinner takes place on Wednesday, 09-Mar-2016, from 19.30 through 23.30 in the restaurant "Gastwerk" on Mittelweg 7, 38106 Braunschweig, in walking distance (800m) to the conference site.
