What to wear
Since we are all surgeons from different parts of Europe at different hospitals, it would be great to show this diversity in our clothing. Therefore we will be running in our operating theatre shirts. Please bring a shirt form your own hospital, in this way we can show Munich that the European craniomaxillofacial community is running for Make a Wish!
We would like to ask you to hand in your shirt at our stand at the industrial exhibition during the conference. We will make sure your startingnumber is attached to the shirt.
Of course it is not feasible to join the conference in your running clothes. Therefore, there are changing rooms within the conference venue, the Gasteig. You can hand in all your personal belongings at the cloakroom. It is only a 5 minute walk back to the Gasteig from the Biergarten to collect all your personal belongings.
