Gala Dinner AREC - 2018-10-27


Toronto, Ontario

Cordially invites you to the Romanian Engineers' Gala Dinner
Edition - 2018

Elegant and modern venue, festive lights and professional sound, entertainment by GILMARO and other surprise apearances, Deluxe Open Bar and an outstanding menu will be our recipe for an unforgettable night at: The Royalton Hospitality Inc. - 8201 Weston Road, Woodbridge, ON L4L 1A6

AREC Executive members and collaborators work very hard to make the GALA one of the most elegant events of the year, and while prices at all venues went up considerably, we try to make the Gala as affordable as possible, by discounting it considerably for the AREC members, students and graduates with the help of our gracious sponsors.

We remind you that we are a non-profit association. This is why we have decided that this year the whole AREC membership for 2019 will go towards a discount for the AREC Gala.

General Admission and Membership:

A full-price ticket this year is $110/person, but for the same price everyone participating at the GALA has the opportunity to also become a member or an associate member (for non-engineers), by paying $40 for the membership and only $70 for the ticket.
Yes, the whole membership that you pay will be used this year to sponsor your ticket at the Gala.

Here is what the AREC membership offers you in addition to the Gala ticket discount:

- you will be part of a respected professional association committed to supporting you in your personal and career development through networking and tutoring
- you will be able to participate for free in all seminars and other events organized by AREC in 2019
- you will be able to apply for a discounted insurance from Economical Select and use further group discounts negotiated by AREC for members in 2019.
