Workshop 2

The second EVOBODY workshop will take place in Mallorca on March 24 & 25, 2011.
Here you find information on

Mallorca International Airport
Mallorca International Airport is located in Palma. For some practical information, visit their website: Airport Palma de Mallorca

Airport taxi stop is outside the arrivals hall. According to the site, transfer from the airport to workshop venue costs €45 (one way). So, that’s what you should expect to pay.

Workshop: Venue
Our chosen venue is the Hotel Port Adriano: “… located just above a small leisure marina of Mallorca, which bathes in the reflected light and colours of the blue sea, sky, verdant nature and the glowing red horizon of the evening setting sun.”

Ses Penyes Rotges street s/n,
El Toro (Calviá),
07182 Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain.

Free WiFi acess will be available in the conference room, but it is important for you to know that we are having a topless meeting. This means that, during the meeting, participants are required to be fully engaged in the discussion (instead of getting distracted by their handhelds). During the breaks, however, you are free to check your emails and surf the net.

Workshop: Social Events
On Wednesday (March 23, 2011) we will gather for dinner in the hotel.

On Thursday (March 24, 2011) we will appreciate the sunset with a wine tasting at the terrace, followed by dinner.
