ESEM Social Event
ESEM Dinner: October 10, 2013
We welcome you to a night of awe at the National Aquarium in Baltimore for our conference banquet on Thursday, October 10, 2013. This aquarium has recently been chosen as one of the best in the US by Travel Channel. It showcases over 16,500 marine animals within 115,000 square feet of exhibit space, including new exhibits which opened just this year. The Blacktip Reef is a breathtaking exhibit full of color, light, and movement located at the heart of the building. The coral-filled exhibit, replicating Indo-Pacific reefs, is active with life that guests can experience from many vantage points. The Shark Alley houses sharks of varying sizes and species slowly encircling visitors inside the 225,000-gallon, ring-shaped exhibit. You will come nose to nose with several species of sharks, sting rays and other fascinating fishes.
The aquarium will open to our group at 7PM. Food will be served starting at 7:00. Transportation by bus will be provided by the conference. Buses depart the hotel at 6.30pm, 6.45pm, and 7pm. Buses depart the aquarium at 9pm, 9.30pm and 10pm
