Most of the EIMR 2018 conference will be held in Kirkwall, the largest town in Orkney. However, the organisers of EIMR 2018 and much of the local marine renewable energy industry are based in Stromness and you are encouraged to visit. ICIT and some of the other leading organisations are based in the Old Academy in Stromness. The town also boasts many attractions including the Pier Arts Centre. You are all invited to a welcome reception at the Pier Arts Centre starting at 7 pm on Monday 23rd April, but you may wish to travel to Stromness earlier in the day to see the other attractions.
We will leave it to you how and when you reach Stromness, but note that there is a regular bus service from Kirkwall to Stromness. The last bus back to Kirkwall leaves at 2105 (9.05 pm) and thus we have arranged for coaches leaving Stromness at 2130 (9.30 pm) and 2200 (10 pm) on the Monday night to take you back to Kirkwall hotels.
See you soon.
