-More than just a congress centre

Internationales Amtssitz- und Konferenzzentrum Wien, Aktiengesellschaft (IAKW-AG) is responsible for managing and maintaining the Vienna International Centre (VIC) and operating the Austria Center Vienna. A combination not seen anywhere else in the world. IAKW-AG and the Austria Center Vienna are headed by Susanne Baumann-Söllner and Michael Rotter.

Vienna International Centre -UN headquarters in the heart of Europe

In 1971, IAKW-AG was entrusted with the planning, construction, maintenance, management and financing of the VIC. It is owned by the Republic of Austria. Following the transfer of the building to the United Nations in 1979, IAKW-AG retained responsibility for management, maintenance and utility services for the VIC, which comprises eight buildings with a combined floor space of 325,000m².
