Why a Viennese Ball in Geneva?

The tradition of Viennese balls is known throughout the world. In many cities, such as New York, Brussels or Paris, this annual tradition is an integral part of social life from an early age. I note, moreover, that respect for this tradition based on exchange and sharing through music and dance continues to increase.

The Viennese ballroom concept is not just about “networking.” It is about conveying a message. In the case of this years’ edition , to be held at the Musée Ariana, close to the Palais des Nations and in agreement with the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, it is the preservation of peace.

According to the latest studies launched by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, about 80% of participants say they “enjoy spending this evening with their partner”, of which 35% want to meet with business partners as well.

A traditional Viennese ball is a whirlwind of excellence. After the opening show with the beginners’ waltz, the dance floor welcomes all the guests. They may wander from table to table, sharing a glass and some small canapés. Some take the opportunity to talk discuss business, others find the love of their life. The gentlemen are proud of their elegant partner and the ladies appreciate being “queens” for one night. Such a special occasion unites generations and society as a whole.

In the name of the ball organization committee, I thank you in advance for your interest and support.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Musée Ariana on 13 November 2020.
