Events @ESVONC Congress Frankfurt


Welcome reception on the river Main

After the program & AGM (Annual General Meeting) on Thursday afternoon, busses will take us from the Stadthalle Congress Venue to the departure spot of the boat for our Welcome Reception. It will be a 2 hour trip on the river Main with a wonderful view of the Frankfurt skyline and interesting sites.

After the Welcome Reception, you can enter the city for dinner. 

There will be no busses back to Hofheim. Hofheim can easily be reached by direct suburban train from Frankfurt main railway station (S2 to Niederhausen (Taunus)), which takes about 20 mins, or the regional train direction “Limburg” which will go to Hofheim railway station within 20 min. The suburban trains run every 20-30 min. The schedule can be found here: http://www.rmv.de/linienfahrplaene/2017/S2%20ab%2011.12.2016.pdf.

At the Hofheim train station, you can take a taxi back to your hotel, which will be much cheaper than a taxi from Frankfurt city center. 

Address of the boat departure site: 

The boats are on Mainkai, Anleger Eiserner Steg, on the right side of the River Main ("Römer" side).




Gala dinner @Palmengarten

On Friday evening, we will have our annual gala dinner in a magnificent setting, the Palmengarten. 

Busses will leave from Stadthalle venue and from the main congress hotels (more information will follow). 

After a nice dinner and a great dance party, busses will take us back at 24h00, 01h00 and 02h00.
