After the busy AppSec conference days, the evening social events will be the opportunity to have some informal networking time with other professionals while enjoying some of the best Swiss traditions.
The Château Dinner (November 5th)
Overlooking the Neuchâtel Lake, Grandson Castle is an ancient medieval fortress built between the 11th and 14th centuries. It houses an exceptional collection of arms and armors and was witness to the famous Grandson Battle between Charles the Bold and the Swiss Confederates in 1476.
The AppSec Château Dinner will be hosted in the Banquet Hall and will be sponsored by Trend Micro.
A contest and prize draw will take place during the evening and two lucky winners will walk away with a Go Pro Hero3+ Black Explorer Set (1st prize) and a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) Tablet (2nd prize).
The Grandson Castle is a 10 to 15 minutes drive from Y-Parc. Transportation will be organized by bus for all participants. It is planned to leave the conference venue at 7:45 pm and the bus will return to Yverdon (drop-offs at Y-Parc train station and hotels) around 11:30 pm.

The Alpine Dinner (November 6th)
It has become a tradition, ever since the second edition, to end the AppSec event with a traditional Swiss cheese fondue. This year, we will return to the Chalet de Grange Neuve where we had previously hosted this event in 2011.
Located at an altitude of 1356 meters (4448 feet) and nested in an open valley in the Jura mountains, Grange Neuve offers the typical warm atmosphere and wooden interior of the a Swiss chalet.
In a large room, heated by a wood burning stove, you will enjoy a cheese fondue and local white wine before ending the meal with the renowned meringues et double-crème.
Grange Neuve is about 30 minutes drive from the center of Yverdon and transportation will be provided by bus. It is planned to leave the conference venue around 7:30 pm and the bus will return to the city by 11:30 pm with drop-offs at Y-Parc, train station and hotels.
