Social Programme

Social Programme

The social activities are always a key component of the PSI Conference programme. There are events included within the delegate registration fee on the three evenings of the conference. If you are interested in attending the events please ensure that the boxes are ticked when completing the registration process. The social events will give everyone the chance to catch up and engage with colleagues outside of the sessions.

The PSI conference is well known for its networking and social elements. There will be plenty of time to mingle in the Exhibitors area during the breaks/lunch and at the Poster session. In addition, we have social events planned for each evening (and the odd morning)!

The social events are as follows:

 

Welcome Reception: Sunday June 12 7pm-10pm 
The Welcome reception is sponsored by Alira Health.
It will be held in the Imagine Bar of the Gothia Towers hotel. The Bar is located on the 29th floor so has spectacular views over Gothenburg. Come and join us for a welcome drink, some nibbles and the first chance to catch up face-to-face with PSI friends and colleagues since 2019.

 

 

Morning Run: Monday June 13 7am

Don’t forget to pack your running shoes! As traditional at the PSI conference, some conference attendees plan to go for a run along the canal and round Gothenburg on the Monday morning, leaving Gothia Towers outside the main reception at 7:00 am prompt.

 Morning running route

Anyone is welcome to join them. The pace is mixed so no matter your speed you will have someone to run with. We plan to run just over 3 miles, taking no more than 40 minutes. This is a great way to start the conference and in previous years there have been plenty of opportunities for photos and chatting to your fellow runners.

 

Please note that this is not an official event organised by the conference; runners take part at their own risk.

 

Monday Evening Social: Monday June 13 7:45pm-11pm

The Monday evening social event is sponsored by Exploristics.

After enjoying the poster presentations and poster session in the conference hotel join us at the Brewhouse. The riverside venue provides an indoor/outdoor experience and will allow us to enjoy all that the long daylight hours and the Swedish sunshine has to offer. Drinks and street food will be provided at the event. Brewhouse is a short, scenic walk away from Gothia Towers, along the river Gullbergsån.

 

 

Conference Gala Dinner: Tuesday June 14 7:30pm-1am

The Gala Dinner is sponsored by Plus-Project Partnership. 

Conference dinner venue

It will be held at Kajskjul 8 (‘Kai Huul 8’ / K8). Kajskjul 8 is a former quay shed located on the waterside in Gothenburg. We will start the evening with a welcome drink at the bar before sitting down for our meal. Depending on your dietary requirements the menu will consist of soup to start (cauliflower or seafood bisque), beef with sweet potato cakes or a chickpea based option as the main course and a strawberry cheesecake for dessert. After eating the dancing can begin and we will be entertained by 2 sessions from an Abba tribute band backed up by a DJ in the breaks. In keeping with the Abba theme 70s costumes are welcome but if that does not appeal dress code will be smart casual.

 

Attendance at all three social events is complimentary for full three day delegate conference passes.
