On the eve of the long professional day, a dinner was organized by Hungarian Trade and Cultural Center (HTCC) as well as the Ahead Global. The event was held in honor of EBCAM's senior officials gathered in Budapest, at the Fisherman's Bastion Restaurant which has an incredible panorama.

Before the dinner had begun, short greeting speeches took place. After that, the informal evening started.
