Conference Dinner: Konzil Konstanz

The Organization Studies Conference is pleased to announce the Conference Dinner.

Join other conference delegates and the plenary speakers for a conference dinner at Konzil Konstanz.

The Council of Konstanz has a rich history dating to the 14th century. Built in 1388, the building was originally used as a granary and warehouse. From 1414 to 1418, the council building was the location of the largest council of the Middle Ages, the 16th Ecumenical Council for the election of Pope Martin V.

The council building was renovated with great care from 1968 to 1970 to ensure that the historical structure of the building remained intact, and this is precisely what makes the charm of the council building so special. Konzil Konstanz has always been a place of encounter, well being, and culinary delights. It is a place of festivals, conversations, and social gatherings located right on the harbor of Konstanz.

Dinner will include an entrée choice of turkey, fish, or roasted pork. A vegetarian alternative will also be available—please select upon booking.

Date: Thursday, 15 March 2018
Time: 19:30 (7:30 PM)
