Conference Reception (June 16, 18:30-20:00, San Giobbe campus)
A reception will welcome all the participants in the San Giobbe campus, the premises of the School of Economics and Business of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, which is also the conference venue. In this occasion, the participants will meet and enjoy a wine tasting offered by Bisol, the producer of the finest Prosecco wine, the iconic Italian sparkling wine, of the hillsides of the Veneto region. 

Social Event and Conference Dinner (June 17, 19:00-23:00, Venissa Estate, Island of Mazzorbo)
At the end of the second day conference, two boats will pick the participants up in front of the San Giobbe campus, the premises of the School of Economics and Business of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice. After a short trip in the Venetian Lagoon, the participants will arrive at Mazzorbo, an island situated at the heart of the Northern Lagoon Park with only a small number of inhabitants. The dinner will take place in the Venissa Estate which plays testimony to the cultural history of the lagoon farmer as linked to the production of wines and vegetables: it has been preserved over the centuries firstly as a convent vegetable garden, then as a domestic vineyard and today it offers guests the chance to visit a protected area of incredible merit from the point of view of landscape, agriculture, human endeavour and equipment. Dinner at Venissa is the equivalent of immersing yourself in an atmosphere loaded with charm and expectation: the restaurant becomes the focal point of the estate to which the vegetable garden and walled vineyard form the back drop.
