The dinner will offer a stunning arrangement of local dishes and tastes, alongside with tasteful, yet quiet entertainment. Those who will be attending will be offered a truly awe-inspiring dining experience filled with delicious recipes and warm atmosphere. Plenty and savory selections from a rich buffet, including cypriot and international creations, will leave no one unpleased. Additionally, this delightful trip of flavors will be accompanied by pleasant music.


You shouldn’t miss this event! The venue has the capacity to hold up to 600 participants, making it an ideal setting for a Gala Dinner. Regretfully, the tickets for the Gala Dinner are sold out. If you would like to participate, please send an email to the EARLI office as currently we are keeping a waiting list. We will do our best to accommodate the requests we receive. Alternatively, you can try and convince your colleagues who will not attend the gala dinner but still have their tickets to sell them to you!
