Title: LHC Inauguration and LHCFest

Abstract

The LHC official inauguration will take place from 14h00 to 18h00, at Point 18 of the Laboratory, in the presence of the highest representatives from the member states of CERN and representatives from the other communities and authorities of the countries participating in the LHC adventure. 300 members from the international press are also expected, giving a total of 1500 guests. The ceremony will be broadcast live in the Laboratory’s main conference rooms, via webcast and satellite TV (Eurovision). The LHC-fest will follow in the evening in the same place. Its purpose is to, "thank all the actors – physicists, engineers, technicians and administrators – who took part in the design, construction, implementation and commissioning of this great enterprise." For obvious logistical reasons, it has been necessary to limit the number of invited guests to 3000, to include all members of personnel (blue badge holders), representatives of the LHC experiments and other users, as well as representatives from retired staff and industrial support.
