Join us in Bern, Switzerland
96th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Prosthodontics
‘Grüezi’ Everybody,
While May is still a few months away, the anticipation for our first-of-its-kind Annual Academy Meeting in
Bern, Switzerland, is rapidly growing. I am extremely excited about welcoming everyone to my homeland
and look forward to the superb scientific program David Felton and his Committee have put together. The
social events will be equally as spectacular. Officers, Counselors and Committee Members are hard at work
making the necessary arrangements and are superbly supported by the staff members of RES and CCDE, our
meetings arrangements partner in Bern. We could not do it without them. And our corporate sponsors have again been truly
generous with their support.
As you know, the overall program will contain all the scientific and social events pieces customary to our annual meetings. Since
we hope to attract many colleagues from Switzerland and neighboring countries, we have structured the Friday and Saturday
program to what is customary to them, i.e., a full-day scientific session on Friday and a bit more than half a day on Saturday.
The social events of the week will start with a Cocktail Reception at the City Hall hosted by the Major of the City of Bern,
followed by the Blatterfein Welcoming Dinner at the “Schwellenmätteli’, a traditional dining place for the Bernese on the banks
of the River Aare. On Wednesday, there will be a spouse and guests tour to the Paul Klee Museum, an architectural highlight
designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano. It features about 40 percent of Paul Klee’s entire pictorial oeuvre.
On Thursday afternoon, the social outing will bring us first to the truly unique Trummelbach Falls, glacial water falls within the
mountain. Only minutes from there, we will take the cable car up to the famous Schilthorn, where we will enjoy the spectacular
views of the Alps and a typical Swiss dinner in the revolving restaurant ‘Piz Gloria’ amidst 200 mountain peaks!
The Friday spouses and guests tour will offer a visit to the Maison Cailler, one of the famous Swiss chocolatiers, and the
picturesque medieval town of Gruyère, where the equally as famous Gruyere cheese is made. At the end of the day, fellows,
spouses and guests are invited to a cocktail reception at the Congress Center hosted by the Swiss Society of Reconstructive
Dentistry immediately following the afternoon scientific session.
On Saturday, spouses and their guests will have the opportunity to join a guided city tour of Bern. On this stroll through Bern’s
Old Town, guided by Bern Tourism’s knowledgeable tour guides, you’ll learn everything you wish to know about the city‘s 800year history. The final highlight of the week will be the ‘Prom’ on Saturday night at the Hotel Bellevue, where we will experience
the grand art of culinary hospitality in this classy traditional venue in the very heart of Bern's old town, just a short walk or tram
ride away from the Congress Center. After 'no neck tie' in Hawaii, we will return to 'black tie optional' dress code for this one!
After a long and frigid winter here, spring in Switzerland will be a wonderful retrieve. Cheryl and I cannot wait to welcoming you
in Bern in May!
Warm regards,
