Full steam ahead – Opening Reception Tour

As a special event a historic train will host the Opening Reception. During our train journey we will stop at the three important cities of the metropolitan region Fürth-Nürnberg-Fürth-Erlangen.  The journey will take approximately 90 minutes.  It will of course be possible for the passengers to get off the train at the station which is closest to their booked hotels.
Drinks and finger food will be served on the train.
Each participant, as well as any accompanying person, interested in this event can book this journey free of charge in the Conference Shop of the Online Registration Page.
Since the organizers have to plan the capacity of the train, this is the only way to reserve a ticket which will then be handed over together with the conference literature at the Registration Desk on arrival.
