Press release of the conference held on April 11, 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Genève

Participate in the first Viennese Ball held in Geneva

Be the star and the queen of the night.

Geneva is privileged to host its first Viennese ball following other world cities such as New York, Paris and Brussels (among many other cities around the world). On June 6, 2019 at The Ritz Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Genève, the culinary traditions, protocol and art will be part of a magical evening. After the opening ceremony, guests are invited to dance, stroll from table to table, while having a drink and some food. Some will take the opportunity to discuss different subjects, others will dance and waltz with the love of their lives.

It’s the magic of the ball!


On 6 June – in the presence of the Ambassador of Austria, Mrs. Elisabeth Tichy-Fisslberger, the Ambassador of the Sovereign Order of Malta, Mrs. Marie-Thérèse Pictet-Althann and Mrs. Brigitte Lüth, Director of the ball – we will have the honor of experiencing the first Viennese ball in Geneva. These three Viennese ladies – whose heart also beats for Geneva – know how to make us feel the magic and the glamour of a ball and will transport us to another time.


Actors of the political, economic, diplomatic and cultural world, lovers of networking: the ball brings together the society and generations. You dress up to meet, have a drink and enjoy Austrian food, talk about everything and nothing and maybe about the happening in the world – all this to the sound of music. As per Viennese tradition, the ball is a place of exchanging and sharing. We invite you to make this experience in 2019. More than ever, our world needs unique places to embark in new forms of multilateralism and to celebrate being-together in peace.


Book your ticket for this unique evening at the preferential price of CHF 200 online at  (covering entrance, champagne, food and opening ceremony). It is also possible to reserve tables for your guests allowing you to spend an exclusive evening with your business partners or friends.


12 couples of dancers will conduct the opening ceremony under the patronage of the prestigious Austrian school “Tanzschule Schweighofer“. They will present an inspiring choreography, under the chandeliers of The Ritz Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Genève and to the sound of the “Ballhaus Ensemble Wien” orchestra, performing together with several musicians from the “Orchestre de la Suisse Romande”.
