Lunch will be served in the hotel and the afternoon will consist of workshops. There are 2 identical afternoon sessions. 3 workshops will be repeated twice and one will be on only once as it lasts the length of the 2 sessions (Escape Game). If you do not pick the Escape Game workshop, you need to pick a workshop in Session 1 and a different workshop in Session 2.
