Gala Dinner, Friday 27th July
Our four fabulous days will end with the Gala Dinner, again hosted at the Hilton Hotel. A formal sit down dinner in the beautifully dressed ballroom, will precede the Down Syndrome International Awards ceremony.
World Down Syndrome Day Awards
Down Syndrome International announces awards in voluntary, professional and scientific categories on World Down Syndrome Day (21 March ) in the year before each World Down Syndrome Congress.
Any DSi member or member organisation can nominate an individual, group or organisation whose voluntary, professional or scientific activities have strengthened and enriched the lives of people with Down syndrome.
All recipients are invited to a formal presentation of World Down Syndrome Day Awards at the WDSC, with the next presentation to take place at WDSC 2018, Glasgow in July 2018.
Agron Shehaj, Emmanuel Victor Bishop, Emmanuela Zaimi, Professor Jennifer Wishart, Dr Patricia Gunn, Sarder Razzak, Saylee Agavane, Soela Zani, and University of Queensland Down Syndrome Research Program.
Finally, we’ll dance to the edge of time before our bitter sweet farewells and promises to see each other again “For auld Lang Syne”.
