  • Networking Dinner on Tuesday 13th October, Sheffield Winter Garden
    Free to all direct EOG members and members of national associations linked to the EOG, the dinner, which will be hosted by the EOG, will give delegates arriving the day before the Summit the invaluable opportunity to meet new or catch up with old associates or colleagues in a relaxed and informal setting. Takes place from 6.30pm till late.
  • Gala Dinner, Wednesday 14th October, Sheffield  Cathedral
    Sponsored by Berghaus, ISPO and W.L Gore and Associates, the main Gala dinner held in the stunning Sheffield Cathedral will give delegates the opportunity to socialise with colleagues in a more formal setting (dress is smart/casual). On arrival guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks before sitting down to a tempting three course meal in the magnificent venue. An after dinner speech will be given by mountaineer Kenton Cool.

That’s it! You are all set to have a great Summit!
