The dress code for the Academy event is a mix between "business casual" and "informal attire" (please wear with whatever you feel comfortable, I wouldn't recommend jeans and a polo shirt, though)

black shoes

  • Women: (optional suit) or skirt or trousers, blouse, (optional

matching jacket), closed toe shoes

Please check your flight plans and make sure you'll leave the hotel early enough. We'll reimburse you for the cab/public transportation.

Open questionsEdit

  • People will need to check out of the hotel in the morning. The hotel will store people's luggage?
