Optional ECB Tour

Friday, June 14

In addition to planning dinner for all conference attendees at Alte Oper on Friday, June 14, we have arranged a tour of the new building for the European Central Bank. As space is limited, we ask for pre-registration for the tour with your conference registration. There is no additional charge for this visit. In case of oversubscription, attendees will be randomly selected with preference given to current SMS members.

Note, should you be included in the ECB tour, we will collect your formal name and date of birth to provide to ECB security. This information will not be held by SMS or Frankfurt School and deleted by ECB after the event.

Evening Events in Frankfurt!

Thursday, June 13: Welcome Reception

Frankfurt’s Special SMS will kick off with a drinks reception at 6pm. It will be held in the Executive Lounge and attached terrace overlooking the city. What better way to catch up with colleagues than to watch the sun set on Frankfurt's iconic skyline.

Friday, June 14: Dinner at Alte Oper

Following the sessions on Friday, we are delighted to invite conference attendees for dinner at Alte Oper!

Behind the historical facade of the previous Frankfurt Opera House lies one fo the most outstanding concert halls of major importance. The history of the house reaches back into the late 19th century to its construction in October 1880 from plans drafted by the Berlin architect Richard Lucae. Following the destruction of World War II, it took nearly four decades for the reconstruction of the modern concert hall. 

In addition to dinner, Stefan Walter, Director General of Bank Supervision at the ECB, will say a few words about “Regulatory Decisions under Uncertainty”.

We hope you'll join us at this incredible landmark for dinner to celebrate the conference. 

Additional information on these events, such as timing, sign-up, and social guest registration, will be made available for attendees closer to the conference dates.
