At the conference

Casual business attire is recommended.

Since the weather is expected to be warm (probably between 22°C and 30°C; 72°F and 86°F), light clothing is suggested. Although jeans are acceptable, slacks and trousers convey a more welcome sense of informality. Shorts are definitely not suitable for conference delegates.

Women can choose to wear dresses, skirts or slacks. Men can wear either short- or long-sleeved shirts (in this case, rolled up sleeves are quite acceptable) or even polo T-shirts. Blazers can be worn by those presenting, but this is not a rule. A suit and tie are expected only from those in more formal or official roles (e.g., keynote speakers), but if you feel better in a suit and tie as a conference delegate, that is fine too.

Casual footwear – sneakers, tennis shoes or informal shoes – are acceptable, but slippers and flip-flops are not.

At the gala dinner

The same dress code as above applies. However, since this is an evening event, some men may want to take a blazer or a sports coat along. Women may wish to wear a long, formal, dress – but this is not a rule. However, please remember to bring comfortable shoes and clothes in which to party all night! Let’s celebrate one more successful and enjoyable AIB-LAT conference!
