Welcome to Meeting Destination Vienna Vienna impresses with its excellent (meeting) infrastructure, short distances, reliable standards, high service quality and an outstanding range of art and culture. The city combines tradition and modernity - historical flair in a smart and livable city that is constantly evolving. Close to 50% of the city is accounted for by green spaces, making the metropolis the greenest city in the world.

New, Better and Different

Organizers can take advantage of a range of funding opportunities, depending on the scheduled dates for their event. As of July 1, 2022, a new funding measure, the Vienna Meeting Fund 2022-2024, will come into effect. It is aimed at organizers of (association) congresses and corporate events who are planning to organize meetings in Vienna between 2022 and 2024. Also accepting applications from July 1, 2022, the Vienna Convention Fund 2025+ will offer funding for congresses (scheduled to take place in and after 2025). Both funds are designed to provide assistance with costs incurred when hosting events in Vienna.
