Sunday Evening Welcome Reception at The Palace of La Magdalena

The Peninsula of La Magdalena covers an approximate area of 25 hectares. It is one of the topographical projections of the Bay of Santander, the largest estuary in Cantabria. The Palace of La Magdalena is the most emblematic building of the city of Santander and one of the most prominent examples of civil architecture in northern Spain. With a majestic landscape, it is situated at the highest point of the Peninsula bearing the same name. The Palace of La Magdalena has had a truly intense history, which reflects the social and political situation in Spain. Eight decades of busy existence, from Royal Residence to municipal property and headquarters for the International University, made its restoration absolutely essential, and the project was completed in 1995. Currently, the Palace is a place that offers different alternatives for hosting conferences and meetings, and it also preserves a museum area recreating the charm of the former Royal Residence.

ATTIRE: suggestions for him – seasonal sport coat or blazer in colour of choice with slacks, open-collared shirt; and for her – cocktail dress or nice pants outfit. No formal gowns, ties or black ties required.

Monday Evening Networking Reception on Brittany Ferries’ Pont-Aven

Delegates will enjoy an early evening reception and tour of Brittany Ferries’ flagship vessel, Pont-Aven. Pont-Aven is possibly the most luxurious ferry currently in operation. Carrying up to 2,400 passengers and 650 cars, the vessel is the largest within Brittany Ferries’ fleet and is their cruise ferry to France and Spain. The ship takes her name from the Breton town synonymous with artists and her interior décor reflects that link.

The ship itself boasts stunning features, including a superb pool and leisure area, a wrap around promenade for pleasant deck strolls, and a dramatic five deck high atrium with panoramic views from the lifts. The central hub of the ship is the main lounge bar, Le Grande Pavois, where Interferry delegates and guests will be served appetizers and refreshments.

The reception will be followed by a harbour cruise on board Los Reginas.

ATTIRE: suggestions for him – seasonal sport coat or blazer in colour of choice with slacks, open-collared shirt; and for her – cocktail dress or nice pants outfit. No formal gowns, ties or black ties required.
