The highlight of the year so far was the visit of our Alumni community together with student AIESECers at the WU Ball 2018 in the Hofburg, the Imperial Palace of Vienna. This year we had even more international guests than last year – in total about 50 guests from all over Europe.
The weekend program started with a dinner at Iñigo Restaurant, where we welcomed all our international guests with typical Austrian cuisine. The restaurant was chosen due to its social initiative to support the inclusion of long-term unemployed people in the labor market.
Saturday was fully packed with AIESEC program, just like back in the student times. A bunch of alumni learned a lot about the extensive history of music in Vienna with surprising new facts even for locals! Life long learning is true for all of us.
After lunch at Griechenbeisl with the famous Augustin at the entrance we continued the day with a dance course by Tanzschule Wagner. We got an excellent preparation for the ball night and the Quadrille at midnight and at 2 a.m. in the morning.
Of course all the AIESEC alumni performed well on the dance floor in the Grand Hall of the Hofburg. And we had the best places possible – our tables were directly in the Grand Hall. We had a lot of fun – the last alumni left only after the Big Band played several rounds of encores.
On Sunday finally we enjoyed the farewell brunch together at the traditional Café Landtmann to say good bye to wonderful colleagues and a lovely weekend.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all again at the ball in 2019!
Your AAA and OC Wu Ball Team
