Welcome Reception took place on the August 27 starting at 6:00 PM and ending at 9:00 PM at the conference venue (Berlin School of Economics and Law, Campus Lichtenberg).
Gala Dinner took place on the August 29 starting at 6:30 PM at bcc Berlin. bcc (The Haus des Lehrers) was built on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz between 1961 and 1964, together with the domed Kongresshalle (bcc) as a separate event space. The former Kongresshalle, now known as the bcc, attracts the eye with its transparent, clear design and many interesting architectural details. Its glistening aluminium dome can be seen from far, and the building’s foyer provides visitors with an unobstructed view of the Berlin cityscape. The combination of the present-day bcc and the adjacent Haus des Lehrers forms an intense architectural ensemble on Alexanderplatz. The bcc is right in the center of Berlin. The location’s excellent public transport connections ensure an easy arrival and minimized commuting times. The bcc is within walking distance from the hotel Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz where we reserved a large number of rooms for MIM participants (please make your reservations asap!).
