[View Powwow Report] powwow: Post Conference Powwow

NetherlandsRotterdamIn personEnglish


This powwow will take place right after the 2015 international conference ends in a unique location on the Rotterdam waterfront. On an ocean liner no less! The SS Rotterdam was once the luxurious flagship of the Holland America Line and from its maiden voyage in 1959 until it was withdrawn from service in 2000 it sailed the Atlantic many times and later became a cruise ship. it fell into disrepair but was brought back to its birthplace and restored to its former glory. It is now a floating hotel , conference and restaurant location and is permanently moored in Rotterdam harbour.

Our voyage begins on the other side of the harbour where water taxis will pick us up from close to the conference hotel and take us over the Nieuwe Maas waterway to the SS Rotterdam. We have a reserved place in the elegant Club Room, one of the beautifully restored restaurants where passengers from all around the world once dined at sea and which was affectionately known as the ‘living room’.

Our meal will be a 3 course dinner with a choice of fish, meat or vegetarian dishes for each course (see below). After the meal, with plenty of time to stroll the decks and admire the view (weather permitting!) or relax in the lounge, the water taxis will take us back to the conference hotel.

  • Price including 3 course dinner and water transport to and from the ship: € 50 per person.

    Advance payment will be required to secure your booking, details will be sent to those of you who make a reservation. If you are also attending the pre-conference powwow on Friday you can reserve both meals for € 75, saving € 5 on the individual prices. Bookings received by 31 May will be guaranteed, after that date they will be subject to availability.
