conference cities

Vienna - There are many good reasons for inviting important conferences, meetings, conventions or incentives to Vienna.

There are many good reasons for inviting important conferences, meetings, conventions or incentives to Vienna. Vienna - one of Europe’s leading conference cities - is centrally located in the heart of Europe and is easily accessable. It is compact, walkable, green, clean and safe. Vienna is the number one city for art and music lovers, attracts gourmets with fine food and wine, fascinates fans of the imperial age, and inspires trend scouts for fashion, design and music. Vienna is more than just a city – Vienna is a way of life!

Vienna is a metropolis of fascinating diversity: it is a centuries-old cultural center and a former imperial residence, a modern capital with a cosmopolitan flair at the heart of Europe, an economic cross-roads, a seat of the United Nations, and one of the world's most popular conference venues. At the same time Vienna is also known as a city in which the "good life" tempts visitors to tarry over apple strudel and Sacher cake. There is something to be said for each of these aspects, and Vienna offers its visitors all of them. Perhaps it is music, the language that knows no barriers, that helps people feel at ease and somehow "at home" in Vienna.

With its 3 convention centers, magnificent palais and museums, trendy event locations and more than 80 conference hotels Vienna offers venues for every taste and budget. The Austria Center Vienna is ideal for large conferences with related exhibitions, trade shows, international and national corporate meetings, and product launches. Located in the heart of Vienna, Hofburg Vienna ist Europe’s first address for congresses and meetings as well as exhibitions and banquets. The Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center has large expanses of exhibition space, many conference halls and rooms as well as common areas for interaction.

More than 400 hotels with over 26.500 rooms in Imperial and modern style meet any taste and preference.

Recent hotel openings: The Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom with ist breathtaking design of star architect Jean Nouvel and the Fleming’s Deluxe Hotel Wien-City with 197 rooms and 10 suites in exclusive and modern design.

Upcoming openings: In 2012 the hotel openings of Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna and ME Vienna by Sol Melià will be celebrated.
