Public Event

We hope to organise a public event one evening during the congress. Full details will appear when they have been finalised.


Organised Trips

We hope to organise several trips for delegates both before and after the meeting.  

Possible trips include visits to penguin colonies at Boulders Beach and/or Stony Point; winery tours and birding trips around the Cape peninsula. 

Please note these trips are likely to incur an additional cost.

Please send all enquiries about the conference to enquiries@penguincongress.org. A member of the local organising committee will respond as soon as possible.

Ice Breaker

Registrations will start on Sunday 4th September 2016 at 15:00 at the Avenue Congress venue. At registration you will receive your name badge which will give you access to the Two Oceans Aquarium. Feel free to enjoy this on Sunday afternoon if you like. 

As at previous International Penguin Congresses we will start with a social event – the ice breaker where you can meet with old friends and get to know the new, first time, delegates. The IPC’s have always been very friendly events and all delegates are encouraged to come along to get to know one another better. 

The ice breaker will be free to all registered and accompanying delegates and will be held on the evening of Sunday 4th September 2016 at 19:00 at the Two Oceans Aquarium. The Aquarium will be closed to the public so entrance to the icebreaker is via the Avenue Congress venue and very close to the registration desk. 

Each person will receive one welcome drink upon arrival and this will be followed by a cash bar for those who are still thirsty.
