Dear Alumnae, dear Alumni, dear Friends,

Munich, the capital of Bavaria and Germany's third-largest city, is a global hub of culture, politics, science, and media. Its economy thrives on high-tech firms, the service sector, and is home to six DAX companies, making it a powerhouse of innovation and business. Munich is not only a centre for economic activity but also a city rich in culture and history, with numerous museums, theatres, and historic buildings. Following Ernest Hemingway’s recommendation “You don’t even go somewhere else, I tell you, there’s nothing like Munich. Everything else is a waste of time in Germany”, we decided to host this year’s annual meeting in Munich.

For those who are already in Munich on Friday evening, we invite you to an optional guided tour of the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum including a Beer Tasting of all six Oktoberfest Beers with a beer sommelier.

On Saturday afternoon, we will explore the Olympia Park with a guided tour “1972 - 2022 Faster, Further, Higher - Munich 50 Years Olympic City”, revisiting the extraordinary efforts and tragic events of the 1972 Olympics, the historical sites associated with the games and the terrorist attack, and highlighting the 50th-anniversary celebration and the “European Championships Munich 2022.” The tour includes a visit to architectural highlights such as the Olympia Stadion, Olympic Village, Olympia Tower and the memorial site.

The evening event will start with “Eisstockschießen” (Bavarian Curling) including an outdoor reception in the beer garden of the Bamberger Haus in Schwabing. We will continue in the magnificent baroque ballroom “Luitpold Saal” with a set dinner and a speech by Professor Klaus Goetz, LSE Alumnus and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences of Ludwig Maximilians University Munich. He will give us his insights and perspective on “Why is contemporary politics so turbulent? And is that a bad thing?”

On Sunday, after a guided walk to Munich Mobility points, we will host a panel discussion of experts on a topic related to the resilience of Urban Mobility followed by a Q & A Session at OutOfOffice München. The Annual Meeting will end with a networking lunch overlooking Munich and the Eisbach Wave.

We cordially invite you and your partner to the annual meeting with the programme you see below.
