Salzburg Convention Bureau: Growing Demand
Salzburg has become an important destination in Austria for international congress and meeting organisers. According to Salzburg Convention Bureau, the number of meeting inquiries from international clients shows a plus of 10% and is still increasing. This is of utmost importance for the regional economy: Delegates stand out due to their above-average value creation.
Last year the providence Salzburg listed more than 219,500 participants at large and several days’ congresses – a 5,7% increase. Next to congresses and seminars Salzburg hosts many international corporate meetings in 2017. The German Software AG hosted their international User-Group-Conference in Salzburg City – and an event of the search engine giant Google also took place in Salzburg. Both companies’ events were held in the city of Salzburg as well as in the mountains surrounding the city.
