WORLD CAPITAL OF CONGRESS TOURISM
COMPARISON WITH THE REGION
Looking at a number of various criteria the City of Vienna is listed among the world’s most innovative, energy efficient and so-called smart congress cities. These titles are the result of active development of the meetings industry, which is managed and directed by the Vienna Convention Bureau. The calendar of congress and events clearly illustrates why the city on the Danube has developed into one of the world’s leading congress destinations. Having a well-developed infrastructure is the formula for success, especially when the city has clear objectives, is taking targeted action and is integrating the entire city. Without a high-quality service, it would not function and this is reflected in the system for preparing the congress candidacies, with which Vienna has set the standard for other congress offices around the world.
