Optional End-of-Conference Event


After the close of the conference on April 26, we would like to invite you to meet members of the Open Education Global Conference planning committee in the Delft City Centre (Central Market) to experience the beginning of King’s Night celebrations.  If you haven’t experienced the atmosphere and joy of a city flooded in orange, you should consider attending the 2018 King’s Day celebration. Bells sound, bands play, children perform, deals are made, bargains are found, drinks are consumed, and above all, love, laughter and smiles abound.  Festivities will take place all over the city center, close to all hotels in Delft  You don’t need to sign up, just gather your friends and family and show up!  

Join us for drinks after the conference or enjoy King’s Night on your own and visit any King’s Night activities listed below taking place in Delft:

18.00 – 23.30: Orange Fever King’s Night in the central Market square. Join the crowd and experience the biggest Dutch pub visit you have ever seen, with music, drinks and pub quizzes.  Line up and impressions: https://indebuurt.nl/delft/koningsdag/hij-is-bekend-dit-is-de-line-up-van-oranjekoorts-2018~50523/5/
