About COVID-19

The high risk situation caused by the corona pandemic COVID-19 has triggered a number of official measures in Austria, which also directly affect the event industry in Vienna.

Among other things, the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection issued a decree in accordance with Section 15 of the Epidemic Act (“measures against the convergence of large crowds”) and prohibited all indoor events with more than 100 participants and outdoor events with more than 500 participants for now until 3. April.

In view of the increase in COVID-19 patients, the City of Vienna is preparing a care centre at Messe Wien to provide enough beds for the sick if necessary – however, there are currently no patients.

In addition, the freedom of movement in public spaces is currently massively restricted. The Austrians are asked to maintain social contacts only with the people with whom they live. We do our part by:

  • not working in the office, but from home
  • contact customers and partners not face2face, but by phone, email and video
  • stopping all business trips.

The Congress & Event Management Team at Messe Wien will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your booked or planned event and for new inquiries:

MON-THU, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

FRI, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. or +43 1 7272 0

We are working hard to ensure that, after the situation has calmed down, we can start full speed again and realize great events.

Thank you for your trust and patience in these challenging times.

Stay healthy!
