Monday 19th January - Drinks on Microsoft and Pearson Education at the Speights Ale House
Join MicrosoftResearch Asia/University Relations, Microsoft Australia and Pearson Education New Zealand Monday night for an evening of drinks and finger-foods at the Speights Ale House. Located on the historic site of the Speights Brewery in Rattray Street, the Speights Ale House provides a fine example of southern charm and hospitality. During the evening we'll be offering tours of the Speights heritage brewery (tour places are limited, so may be subject to demand), and you'll have ample opportunity to enjoy some of the deep south's favourite beers!
This is a completely free event, courtesy of Microsoft and Pearson, and is open to all registered attendees of ACSW2004. Don't forget to bring your conference ID, though - you'll need it to get served at the bar. See you there!
WHERE: Speights Ale House, 200 Rattray Street, Dunedin.
WHEN: Monday 19th January, 7.00pm (follows the 5.30pm Microsoft presentation Monday evening).
GETTING THERE: Shuttle buses from the conference venue to the Speights Ale House will operate continuously from 6.30 to 7.30pm.
