UPDATE:  There have been some changes in opening night party information. Please see the blog post here for current details.

We’ll be kicking up our heels in the sand come opening night, as TBEX Europe 2015 launches in a splashy Catalan celebration.

Meet up at the Lloret de Mar Town Hall (map here) on Thursday, April 30th, 2015, for departures to Hotel Santa Marta on Santa Cristina beach. There are a couple of different ways to get to the beach, so make your best choice from the options below. Please note that these are departure times, so plan to arrive about a half hour early to board and get ready to go.

By Boat

  • 6:30 pm departure –  Travel by boat to Santa Cristina beach via a scenic sailing along the coastline. This longer itinerary allows for more time on the water for coastal sightseeing.
  • 7:00 pm departure – Direct sailing to Santa Cristina beach (sailing time approximately 15 minutes).
  • 7:30 pm departure – Same itinerary as at 7:15 pm.

There will be a number of boats making the trip, and can accommodate anyone wanting the scenic sailing or the direct transport. Please be on time.

By Bus

If you don’t want to travel to the party by boat, or if you’re arriving into Lloret de Mar a little bit later, there will also be a bus to take you to the party.

Meet up for the bus is also at the Lloret de Mar Town Hall for two departures, one a 7 pm and another at 9 pm depature for Santa Cristina beach.


You know that our friends in Costa Brava will have some wonderful suprises for us at the beach party. The theme in Indianos, and while we don’t want to give away too many of the surprises lined up, but you know there will be great food and drink, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some castellers.

The party will end between 11:30 pm and midnight, with bus transportation back to the center of Lloret de Mar.

The TBEX Europe 2015 Opening Night Party is open to all registered attendees. It’s a badged event. If you register on site earlier, please wear your badge. We will have registration available at the meeting place for those who haven’t picked up their registration.
