Innovative catering and event concepts

From 2-5 May 2017 the Austria Center Vienna hosted the Associations World Congress, credited as the world’s largest training, knowledge and networking conference for associations. Vienna as a destination and the Austria Center Vienna as host had a gilt-edged opportunity to showcase their strengths to around 200 prospective congress organisers with a combined outreach of around half a million participants over the next few years.  

The Austria Center Vienna is much more than congress facilities and spaces – it also works closely with its customers to create joined-up, custom event concepts. To give their guests an idea of the possibilities open to them at the venue, the Austria Center Vienna team transformed the largest hall into a facsimile of the Stadtpark for the opening event. 

"We created an unforgettable and highly-unusual backdrop complete with rose bushes, hydrangeas and a copy of the world-famous Johann Strauss statue,” explained Managing Director Susanne Baumann-Söllner. “This grand opening was without doubt one of the highlights of the congress, and we are also very pleased that we were able to provide such a special wow effect.” 

The culinary art also delighted the guests: excellent regional ingredients and seasonal variations let the world-famous Viennese cuisine shine. Always beautifully presented: thanks to exclusive crockery that strikes the perfect balance between down-to-earth charm and understated elegance. Flowers and pots of fresh herbs on specially constructed buffet elements help to transform the buffet area into a visual experience.
