                    CONFERENCE VENUE

The conferences take place at the Hotel Annapurna ***** Courchevel 1850, France. The Hotel offers excellent facilities for conferences and lectures with triple projection for slides and overhead video projection. There is a small lecture room for seminars.

 

The 3 Vallées, Meribel, Val Thorens, Courchevel

Courchevel, with its enormous complex of inter-connected lifts covering six mountains and across three valleys, offers probably the finest ski-ing for all grades of skiers in Europe. The lift systems (204) link nine ski resorts. In January there is little queuing, and the ski-ing conditions have always been superb with wonderful powder snow; the off-piste ski-ing of varying grades is magnificent.

Format and Social Activities

There is a Welcome Cocktail Party after the first lecture on the Sunday evening to which all participants and their partners are welcome. This is to allow you to greet old friends, and meet new ones, and catch up on current events in the rest of the world.

After the Tuesday evening lecture, refreshments will be served in the conference room only for participating dentists. On Thursday evening there is the Grand Dinner and Dance at the Hotel Annapurna. This is a magnificent buffet of everything imaginable to eat but particularly superb, is the seafood, followed by dancing to the live band until the small hours. The dress code is semi formal and the evening is complimentary for everyone staying at the Annapurna Hotel. Conference delegates who are not staying at the Annapurna Hotel are very welcome and the cost of the dinner is approximately 80. (for the dinner and entertainment) which offers excellent value.

Other entertainment: It is fun to hire snowmobiles at night to tour the pistes by moonlight. The machines are fast and powerful but there is a guide to show you the way. "Lugging" is also very exciting and exhilarating activity which takes places on the Luge run between Courchevel 1850 and 1550 usually at night after a few beers!
