"I’m very pleased that our efforts over the past few years – not only the redesign of the venue, in particular the new furniture, the Business Lounge and the new lighting concept in Hall A, but also the dedication of our sales team and project managers when it comes to staging conferences – are now clearly bearing fruit," said Susanne Baumann-Söllner, managing director of the Center.
"Especially in the last three years we have shown just how effective the Austria Centre Vienna is at staging successful international congresses," she added.
