Post Congress Tour

To finish off our great congress, there will be a Post Congress Tour (PCT) on Friday the 9th of June. On this day you will be able to enjoy a typical Dutch afternoon with 100 other participants and the Organising Committee of ISCOMS 2017.

Every year the PCT consists of the perfect balance between experiencing the unique Dutch culture, relaxation and enjoyment. It will give you the perfect opportunity to blow off some steam after the intense congress days. This year we will visit a beautiful city in the north of the Netherlands, called Sneek. We will travel by bus from Groningen to Sneek, which will take about one hour.

Sneek is a small, but well known city in the Netherlands for the many water sports, boating and ice skating. The old town of Sneek is characterised by canals, historic houses and bridges, offering plenty of charming town views. You will get to see all of this when we take a tour through city center by boat and a walking tour. One of the greatest monuments you will see is the Watergate. This 17th century gate was part of a defensive system and has become a symbol for the city. You do want a picture of this beautiful bridge. We will also visit a museum that exhibits the history of the shipping industry and the city. We will serve you a Dutch lunch during this day.

The Post Congress Tour will ultimately end the wonderful experience of ISCOMS. This day will be spent with members of the Organising Committee and other participants that will guarantee you a lovely day.
