Social Activities

Aside from the Pre-Conference Drinks ReceptionIcebreaking Reception and Product and Poster Exhibition event, which are part of the 4S Symposium programme for all registered participants, there are several other social activities organised to network with colleagues from across the world. These additional social activities are included in the standard conference registration fee. Guest tickets however may be purchased at a surcharge. As these social events aren't included in the student and additional exhibitor stand personnel registration fee, they will also have the possibility to purchase tickets at a surcharge.

Drinks Reception

All those who arrive the night before the symposium are invited to pre-register and join us for an informal drink. This is the best opportunity to cheer for a remarkable start of the 2024 4S Symposium with old and new faces alike.

Gala Dinner

For our Gala Dinner, we have chosen Son Termes, one of the most emblematic Finca of the 13th century located in the wonderful Serra de Tramuntana.
The Serra de Tramuntana mountains run the length of Mallorca's northwestern coastline extending for almost 90km and claim some of the island's most magnificent scenery. In 2011, it was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO
