There will be a full program of social events at ICFPM, and delegates will be able to enjoy more than a glass of wine and a bottle of cider while greeting old and new acquaintances.
These activities are included in ICFPM registration fee. To help us organize it, please, check it when you register.
All delegates are invited to the Welcome Party on Sunday 26th of May from 19:30 to 21:30 at “El Tendayu” (entrance by the Conference Venue, see below).
Tendayu is the Asturian word for “stall.” In this case it refers to a wooden framework built after models of the XV and XVI centuries.
It belongs to the open-air part of the Museum of Asturias. This is a nano-Asturias!
We will also be able to visit various traditional and antique constructions, like the horreos, that are little houses built on four pillars and were used to keep the grain and vegetables aways from the animals.
A espicha is an informal buffet-style banquet held in a cider mill, usually organized to celebrate a family event or friends gathering, or … ICFPM Welcome Party. Technically speaking, the word espicha refers to the action of opening a barrel for the first time. Food is traditional and eaten up while standing and moving from group to group. Asturian networking!
Cider, which the Romans discovered when they arrived here two thousand years ago, is more than just a drink: it is a way of getting fun, of socialising, and of sharing. Because cider is never drunk alone in Asturias.
Everyday in Asturias Hall (Exhibition area).
Lunch is on us!
