The ITW 2019 welcome reception will be held in Gottlands museum (https://www.gotlandsmuseum.se), on the evening of Sunday August 25. The reception will feature drinks and canapés. Participants will be given the opportunity to walk around the museum and learn more about Gottland's rich history, from its first inhabitants, through the Viking age and the medieval period to the present.
A guided tour of the city will be offered to all ITW participants on Monday after the Technical program has ended for the day. Visby is arguably the best-preserved medieval city of Scandinavia, and the city walk will make stops at some of the most interesting historical building and ruins of the inner city enclosed by the 3.4km city wall.
The banquet will be held on Tuesday evening in Donners Event Hall (http://www.donnersevent.se), after the technical program has ended. The banquet will feature a three-course, locally and seasonally inspired, dinner.
