Vienna records 11 per cent growth in corporate events in 2016
Austrian capital Vienna has emerged as a city of international dialogue hosting 4,084 congresses, conferences and corporate events in 2016. India, too, had a small but growing role to play in this with the Vienna Convention Bureau reporting 14 corporate events from the Indian sub-continent. An 11 per cent growth in congresses, corporate events and incentives in Vienna led to 567,000 global attendees and 1,718,000 overnight stays. “With 36 licensed certification agencies for Green Meetings, Vienna has already demonstrated far-sightedness with respect to environ” says Norbert Kettner, Director, Vienna Tourist Board.
