Edit Dec 28, 2017: We have to terminate the discount campaign as the regular tickets sold out much faster then we expected. Apologies from the organising team.
We thank you for your support and attention in the last weeks! Therefore we have prepared a special surprise for friends and fans of the Science Ball: We are giving away 5% discount on 200 full price tickets as well as on tables in the ballroom and the adjacent rooms, which are ordered in our onlineshop until January 6, 2018. This image of the ball ambassadors was taken on December 12, 2017 in the Stadtsenatssitzungsaal of the Vienna City Hall by Sabine Hauswirth. The inscription of the majolica fireplace in the background says: “Sapienta aedificabitur, prudentia gubernabitur” which means: “With wisdom we will build the house, with acuity it should be governed.” On behalf of the organizing team, supporters and ball ambassadors, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
