Vienna has won the right to host the world’s largest HIV/AIDS conference in 2010. Some 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the XVIII World AIDS Conference, generating an estimated 100,000 overnight stays for the Austrian capital. Taking place from 18-23 July 2010 at Reed Messe Wien, the event will also attract an additional 25,000 lobbyists and experts as well as 2,500 journalists. The event will be organised by the International Aids Society (IAS) with support from the Austrian government, business and community partners and the United Nations. Christian Mutschlechner, head of the Vienna Tourist Board’s Vienna Convention Bureau, said he was able to convince the IAS of the merits of Vienna during two site inspections last year. The main factors behind the decision included the excellent infrastructure, Vienna’s decent treatment of people suffering from AIDS and HIV (particularly the lack of restrictions on their freedom of movement) and the city’s strategic Eastern European focus, Mutschlechner added.
