Bonjour,

Avant de m'inscrire à la soirée Gala, j'aimerais savoir s'il s'agit d'un buffet ou d'un diner formel.
Y a-t-il des options pour les végétariens?

Merci d'avance,
Valérie

Dîner networking Aug 20, 2009

Bonjour Valérie,

A priori, le dîner sera formel. Je suis en train de finaliser les négotiations avec un traiteur de luxe...

Dans tous les cas, il y aura des options pour des végitariens !

Par contre, attention car ton inscription comprend le dîner ! L'achat du dîner seul est réservé aux invités.

Bien à toi,

John

Merci Aug 20, 2009

Merci de ta réponse, John.

J'ai vu après coup que la soirée Gala était incluse. Mais, je suis ravie d'apprendre qu'il y aura des options pour les végétariens.

Au plaisir de te revoir à Nice.

Valérie

Dress code? Dec 2, 2009

I asked a French friend how to dress for a gala but being a chap, he just said "o France is much less formal than GB, any nice frock will do."
Well, I haven't any diamonds but would like to be at least as correct as the other ladies so any guidance woiuld be welcome.
Thank you in time to pack,
parolista.

good question Dec 2, 2009

Just asked a French girlfriend, and she says it's usually pretty formal attire for a gala dinner. What do the organizers say, should we break out our cocktail dresses?

Dress code Dec 2, 2009

Dear Lori and Parolista,

Dress code will be a bit formal - no need for girls to take out long dresses and men the tuxedos, it will not be that formal. Dress nicely - if you do not want to wear a dress/skirt, you can come in an elegant trousers suit, for example.

Looking forward to meeting you this weekend!

Anne
