The banquet of ICSME 2018 will be in the finca Venta del Toro located in Arganda, 29 km South-East of Madrid. La Venta del Toro includes several typical Spanish elements: a patio andaluz, a bullfight arena, an area with pines, and a breeding farm for brave bulls. In the Venta del Toro, we will enjoy wine, Iberian hamm and cheese tastings, and get some information on brave bulls, one of the most renowned elements of Spanish culture, known.
Attendance to the banquet is free for ICSME participants (and those who have bought an extra banquet ticket) on Thursday September 27th. Buses will depart at 18:00 from a place close to the conference venue and will bring participants back to the same place after the event. Travel time is around 30 minutes.
No animal will be injured during the event.
