37th DASC Guest Program

Get Your Guide

The 37th DASC has an extensive well-planned guest program to offer to our attendees.  Guests need to register into the conference (at no cost).  They are then invited to attend our conference extra events.  These require a ticket which can be purchased on the website (at cost).  Guests may also take advantage of our guided sight-seeing program.  This is free to join and participate as much or as little as they want.  Guests are responsible to purchase their own admission and have an oyster card for transportation.  Oyster cards can be purchased at all Tube, London Overground and TfL Rail stations.

Guest Ticket - Monday Icebreaker Reception @ London Cru - $20

Sight-Seeing Program General notes:

  • Specific departure times will be from the IBIS Hotel and will be posted one week prior to the conference, but generally around 8:30 AM.
  • All transportation, admissions and food is to be purchased by the attendees.  
  • Please wear good walking shoes.  We have tried to keep the walking to a minimum, but in some cases it was not possible and many of the sights are quite expansive.  
  • An oyster card must be purchased ahead of time and have a healthy balance.
  • Guests must register into the conference and provide an email address that they will check while in London to receive any last minute notices.
  • Notices will also be posted to the DASC Guest Program website:  http://2018.dasconline.org/pages/37th-dasc-guest-program
