A social programme to remember at EAAP2016

Coming to EAAP2016 in Belfast this year isn’t just about giving you the chance to hear the latest in animal science. 

We want to make sure you have an experience to remember, which is why we’ve organised a fantastic social programme - many of which are free for delegates - to will ensure EAAP2016 will be a conference you’ll never forget.

Here’s our run-down of the week’s top events:

Monday: Delegates will get a warm Ulster welcome at the first evening of the conference thanks to ‘A Taste of Ulster’ - a fantastic food, drink, music and livestock show in St Georges Victorian covered market. 

The market is just across the road from the Waterfront venue, where delegates will have a whole evening to network and see the best of Northern Ireland livestock.

They will also be able to try a variety of top-quality food and drink and view and browse a range great market stalls with local produce and gifts. 

Tuesday: As well as a traditional Belfast City drinks reception in the City Hall, for the more adventurous we’ll be hosting is a treasure hunt around Belfast City pubs as part of our ‘Prof in a Pub’ event.

The hunt will give delegates the chance to explore the city, and visit traditional and friendly pubs where EAAP ‘Professors’ will be able to give then answers to questions that will help towards winning prizes.  

Wednesday: The top event in our social programme, the Titanic Experience will be where delegates can enjoy a fantastic tour of the world-famous Titanic Centre in Belfast Docks - the place the Titanic was built and launched. There will then be a great banquet with drink, music and networking.  

Thursday: A free evening visit and reception hosted by our principal sponsors Devenish Nutrition will see delegates taken to the magnificent Bru na Boinne UNESCO World Heritage Site in the beautiful Boyne Valley, north of Dublin.

Mike Steele of the EAAP2016 Organising Team said: “The EAAP2016 social programme will be one to enjoy and remember.

“We are keen to let every delegate enjoy a total Belfast experience by getting a real taste of the warmth of Ulster and its people.

"We’re sure they’ll have such a great time that they’ll be keen to come back again and again.”
