From autumn 2016 the Austria Center Vienna will be adding five new meeting rooms on the same level as the main entrance. This represents the latest step in the strategy of adding even more networking and meeting spaces at the nation’s largest conference centre. The new spaces join the Business Lounge and neighbouring Café MOTTO which opened on the other side of the entrance area last year.

Highly attractive venue for conferences with up to 4,000 participants

Large-scale international conferences – the Austria Center Vienna’s most important customer segment – add value for the capital while also helping to support the local scientific and research community. 

Conferences with between 3,000 and 4,000 participants that set up their industry exhibitions in the entrance hall are increasingly calling for additional hospitality zones for sponsors and extra space for satellite symposiums. If required, the five new meeting rooms can be partitioned to create eight individual spaces, making them the ideal complement to the existing rooms and halls. “From September the new spaces will allow us to offer a separate multipurpose area right next to the exhibition facilities,” explained Head of Sales Michael Part. Relaxation zones flooded with natural light between the meeting rooms will help to create a pleasant, friendly atmosphere and bring additional light to the entrance hall in the process.  

New customer segment thanks to extended choice of rooms

“Feedback from our customers regarding these new areas shows that we are moving in the right direction. They have already been reserved by various large-scale conferences and will also give international corporate meetings a range of new options,” confirmed Susanne Baumann-Söllner, Managing Director of the Austria Center Vienna. The new facilities are also geared towards the local market as a venue for meetings with up to 1,000 participants.
