The Gala Dinner will take place on Thursday 12 April 2018 at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium

The Adler Planetarium, one of Chicago’s finest cultural venues, opened in 1930 as the first planetarium in the Western hemisphere. With the lofty mission of inspiring exploration and understanding of the Universe, the Adler strives to foster excitement and curiosity about space science and space exploration.

The planetarium offers what is arguably the best view of the Chicago skyline, which will be on full display during our dinner.

The dinner will be held from 19:00 – 22:30, and buses will depart the W Chicago City Center at 18:30. You must have your conference badge to board the shuttle. If you miss the shuttle, taxis are available outside the hotel.
