Austria Center Vienna Confirms Five More Large-Scale Congresses Between Now and 2021
  • June 26, 2017

  • In spring 2018, around 1,500 media experts from 62 countries will come to Vienna for the international Radiodays Europe conference. This annual gathering is widely regarded as a creative workshop for all future radio broadcasters. At the end of May 2018, the four-day European Congress of Obesity (ECO 2018) will give 800 leading international experts the chance to compare notes and present the latest research findings on adiposis.

    “The acquisitions made over the past few weeks speak for themselves,” confirmed a highly satisfied Susanne Baumann-Söllner, Managing Director of the Austria Center Vienna. “And new bookings for 2018 are coming in all the time. As things currently stand, 19 international and numerous domestic events have confirmed their bookings at the Austria Center Vienna.”

    The Austria Center Vienna team is particularly pleased about securing a booking for the start of July 2018, when the International Commission On Large Dams (ICOLD) World Congress comes to town. This event is expected to attract around 2,000 international dam builders and operators and equipment suppliers for major dam projects.

    The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) will be returning to the Austria Center Vienna in 2020 for the third time with around 9,000 dermatologists. “The EADV is an ideal example of a satisfied customer that keeps on coming back to the Austria Center Vienna as a direct result of the high-quality execution of previous congresses,” Baumann-Söllner confirmed.

    “We are noticing a distinct shift towards smaller meetings, discussion groups and networking activities. And we are ideally placed to accommodate this growing trend thanks to the flexibility of our 180 rooms and 24 halls – all of which are partition-able. Following extensive modernization and expansion of the centre’s infrastructure, we now provide the ideal setting for a wide range of meeting formats, meaning that we are always able to accommodate the latest trends,” Baumann-Söllner added. New outdoor meeting formats are being introduced for the first time this year to help bring the green spaces around the Austria Center Vienna into play for participants. The new Meeting & Networking2go concept lets organizers host smaller meetings and interactive formats in the neighboring Donaupark. Easy-to-transport, self-inflating seating and web cubes for seamless Internet access are all part of the package.
