abcn - austrian business and convention network
Who ever said that professional advice and full-range service need to be pricey? We at the austrian business and convention network (abcn) make it our business to advise and support you in looking for a perfect location and organising your event as best we can – and free of charge, to boot.
In doing so, our intimate familiarity with the country in which we have been living, working and spending our holidays for many years, is our prime asset. Moreover, we cooperate closely with the convention bureaus in Austria’s provinces – with their in-depth know-how, they will help you fine-tune every offer to perfectly fit your wishes and needs.
access, the trade fair of the convention and meeting industry, offers you a detailed picture of Austria’s multi-faceted programmes. As one of the five sponsoring organisations of this event, we are able to identify major trends in the convention business and willing to readily share them with you and other industry stakeholders.
Recommended by abcn and winners of international awards
Isn’t it fascinating how different meeting venues can be? From a rustic hunting lodge with a private fishery to an ultra-chic luxury locality downtown, or a spacious, hypermodern conference centre able to cater to some 10,000 delegates. What they all have in common is state-of-the art facilities and the fact that they have been thoroughly vetted by abcn and the convention bureaus and can therefore be wholeheartedly recommended.
Our choices have been endorsed by independent, international bodies. In 2004 and 2010, the Bregenz festival and congress centre on lake Constance received the APEX Award as one of the top three congress centres world-wide.
