The excitement is great, as is the interest: tickets for the 9th Vienna Ball of Sciences on 27 January 2024 are now available in the webshop.
The Chairman of the Ball Committee, Oliver Lehmann, recorded extremely high interest even before tickets went on sale, both from Austria and abroad. Tickets can be booked immediately at https://www.wissenschaftsball.at/shop/. The prices: € 100 for regular tickets, € 40 for students. Tables and boxes can also be booked at https://www.wissenschaftsball.at/shop/.
Lehmann: “What was apparent last year has been confirmed again this season: interest in the Science Ball is extremely high. Even before tickets went on sale, we were flooded with enquiries! The Science Ball represents the diversity, size and excellence of the universities, universities of applied sciences, private universities and research institutions in the greater Vienna area.”
The programme in the ballrooms on the Beletage and – for the first time since 2020 – also in the Volkshalle of the town hall presents a stimulating mix of amazing scientific presentations, surprising tastings and music ranging from waltzes and jazz to soul and tango, including the opening committee and midnight quadrille. Thanks to the commitment of the 400 orchestra and band musicians, dancers, event technicians and catering staff, the Science Ball makes a significant contribution to Vienna’s cultural and event scene.
Lehmann: “Music from all genres, from waltz to swing, world and tango to hip hop, awaits you on five stages from 8.00 pm to 4.00 am. Presentations from the world of science will transform the town hall into an open-plan laboratory of enlightened pleasure.”
Once again, the rectors, presidents and heads of all Viennese universities, private universities, universities of applied sciences as well as the Austrian Academy of Sciences, IIASA, ISTA and WPI will form the committee of honour, underlining the relevance of Vienna as the most important university and research location in Central Europe. Highlights of the programme will be announced over the coming weeks, as will the ball ambassadors from science, business, culture and society.
The marketing activities for the ball are now in full swing.
