Signing up for the dinner

Please select one of the available menus (click here for the menu overview) and make sure to indicate which menu you would like to have when signing up.

Note that signing up for the dinner is a binding registration. This means that we will pre-order the amounts of menus corresponding to the number of people signing up; and your registration commits you to paying the for the menu. In other words, if you do not show up, we will still have to charge you for the dinner, as EDN can not take expenses for pre-ordered menus, which are not made use of. We hope for your understanding regarding this procedure.

Your payment for the food & drinks is handled directly with the restaurant on the evening of our dinner. This year, the number of participants is limited to 30 persons. Reservations are handled on a first-come first-served basis.

In order to participate, you have to be a member of EDN. If you're not a member yet, you can join us here, otherwise please make sure you have renewed your membership (click here to get to the renewal page).
