History of the ball

The IAEA Staff Association Ball has become an integral part of the Vienna's traditional ball calendar. The first IAEA Staff Ball was organised in 1961 and since then has been held on a regular basis, sometimes jointly with UNIDO and UNOV. For the past 20 years it has been our very own IAEA Staff Association Ball.

The next IAEA Staff Association Ball will be held on Saturday, 9 February 2019 at the Hofburg, a former imperial palace in the centre of Vienna, Austria.
