Long has the location of the Lost City of Atlantis eluded treasure hunters and scholars. At last the ancient utopia has revealed its pale pillars and timeless secrets, hidden in the sea’s smooth mirror.

Come with us and discover this oasis of beauty and antiquity. Enjoy elegant entertainment, sumptuous décor, and a decadent feast worthy of the gods.

It all takes place on April 28, 2017, in the luxury of the SHAW Conference Centre.
