Field trips, excursions and social events

It is common practice for MMV conferences to have “in-conference” field trips. These trips are organized by the conference staff and will last around half a day. Destinations will typically be about an hour’s drive from Bordeaux. They will provide an opportunity to experience real-life examples of outdoor recreation management in the conference region. For this reasons, interactions with stakeholders and managers are actively sought. The “in-conference” field trip is included in the registration fee.

The conference dinner will be held in the Luchey-Halde Chateau, which is actually owned and managed by Bordeaux Science Agro. The Chateau is ideally located on 29 hectares of exceptional land at the center of the renowned appellation, Pessac-Léognan. This  estate  provides students studying  the  wine  industry with an exceptional  working  tool, and beautifully showcases  the  school’s
know-how and commitment. This wine estate is also used to develop new projects such as an environmental approach to the vineyard.

Post-conference tours will also be organized. They will include one or two-day excursions to a number of destinations in Nouvelle Aquitaine. Participants will be able to choose from several tours depending on their desired activities and location. These tours will not be included in the conference fee and require a minimum number of participants.

More details on the program, additionnal keynotes and excursions will come soon.
