Farewell Night

Saturday 18. Nov 2023

Staying true to the theme of this year’s World Congress – “Challenge the Present, Create the Future” – we are breaking with tradition and daring to do something new. Rather than the classic gala evening that usually serves as the grand finale of international events, we’re hosting a Farewell Night instead. Get glammed up – wear your suit and tie, don that gorgeous evening gown – but be sure to wear shoes you’re comfortable standing and moving in. Dinner will be served buffet-style at the Farewell Night with no assigned seating. This is the perfect way to actively mingle with new friends from around the world and keep the networking dialed up.

Expect a formal affair with casual ambiance complete with JCI traditions like speeches and an unforgettable celebration!

Don't forget to register for the Farewell Dinner by 14. November!

  • Door opening: 6 pm
  • Start Farewell Night: 7.30 pm
  • Live Music: 10 pm
