Welcome to Vienna

Our conference and meeting participants value all that the Austrian capital has to offer as an attractive destination for science and business: its central location, modern infrastructure, focus on research, international feel and truly world-class hotels and restaurants.

Vienna has been consistently voted one of the world’s most liveable cities in recent years, with sustainability and safety going a long way to secure its status year after year. So it really comes as no surprise to discover that the city also regularly tops rankings of the world’s best conference and event destinations.

In the heart of the city

Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center is centrally located, yet close to Vienna’s famous Prater park and around the corner from the campus of the new Vienna University of Economics and Business, the Sigmund Freud Private University and the modern, green “Viertel Zwei” business and residential area.

A number of first-rate international hotels are within easy walking distance, including the 3-star plus BASSENA Wien Messe Prater, the 4-star Courtyard by Marriott Wien Messe, the 4-star Hilton Vienna Danube Waterfront, the 3-star Motel One Wien Prater, the Hampton by Hilton Messe Vienna, the Zoku Vienna and the Superbude.
