Location: Terrace Mallorca

Life is More Fun with a Celebration: ASM 2023 Closing Party, "Tardeo"!  After so much hard work and preparations for both the organizers and participants, we all deserve a party to wrap up an eventful week. We invite you to join our closing party “tardeo” on the last day of the congress on the rooftop of the Congress Center overlooking the Bay of Palma. “Tardeo” is a new Spanish concept of leisure and partying starting in the afternoon and ending early evening, which is becoming increasingly popular in the country in recent years. We can enjoy the amazing sunset in a privileged location before we say our goodbyes. Please bring your dancing shoes as we will have a disco DJ!  The winner of the various local contests will be awarded during the party. Complimentary finger food is included in the registration fee, and a cash bar service is available for drinks. Don´t miss out, this is guaranteed fun and a memorable way to celebrate the sure success of ASM 2023 and can still be fit the following morning!

If you want to present your singing, dancing, and novelty acts at the closing party at ASM Palma, please contact [email protected] no later than the 6 June. It´s time to showcase your hidden (or not-so-hidden) talents to the community!
