Evening events

Dear delegate!

JCI World Congress is known for its outstanding and memorable evenings, and we are more than excited to do it again all together, this time in beautiful yet somewhat magical Estonia. The year has come around once again to create and share these moments with fantastic like-minded people! The upcoming week will be full of insightful knowledge and hard work, but as important as that, is how we are going to unwind and celebrate?

JCI’s gatherings and parties are always packed with long-lasting vibrant energy, with great music, dancing, old and new friends, surprises and so much more! We promised, we will take fun seriously, and we haven’t forgotten! Followingly you can find a sneak peek of everything you need to know about evening entertainments : WHAT, WHERE and DRESS CODE. 

We look forward to seeing you in Tallinn!

Global village is the evening where the countries who will be represented at the World Congress, will introduce their flavors and their culture from all around the world. On the 6th of November Tondiraba Ice Hall will be transformed into a Global Village of tastes, dances, songs and entertainment. This is definitely an evening to expect and delegates are always fascinated of what each country has to offer. From Belgian delicious chocolates, Canadian Whiskey and Maple syrup to Switzerland’s Raclette – everything is possible at the Global Village and it is a party of surprising global nations! On the ground floor delegates will be able to enjoy Estonian companies providing local flavors that can not be experienced anywhere else in the world. We will create Estonian area to represent what is magical in Estonia and show how you can become part of it! Be sure to remember that together we will create one really sustainable congress and we ask you to think about how to avoid using single use plastic dishes during this evening. Think about alternatives- biodegradable dishes for example!
