The city as a creative hub

Urban, innovative, multi-faceted

Urban hubs offer everything event organisers could possibly desire: a central location and conference centres within easy reach; suitable hotel facilities a stone's throw away and a lively restaurant scene, not to mention options for supporting and evening programmes.

As an event venue, the city is moreover a bustling and thriving environment in which participants feel positive and inspired by the creative and future-oriented settings of the conferences and congresses themselves. Linz stands for industry and modern trends in media art in equal measure; it is a city that reinvents itself daily. Wels is situated at the intersection of major European transport routes, and, as a trade fair city, is a trailblazer in sustainable events – the key phrase here is "green meetings". Last but not least, Steyr is both an industry city for innovative technology and a great base to explore the Kalkalpen National Park with its unspoiled natural landscapes.

Working in nature

Fresh air gives the mind wings

Sometimes you need a good change of scene to come up with fresh ideas and bring them to fruition. Taking in the fresh air is a remedy that has worked wonders countless times before to spark flashes of inspiration. Get out into the countryside; forget the confined space and artificial light of your usual office. Leave behind the well-trodden paths of daily routine and set course for bold new shores.

In this out-of-the-ordinary environment, does the mind wander too much from the core task? Quite the contrary! Getting away from it all is precisely what can help fuse a team together and focus everybody's mind on the matters at hand. Whether in the mountains of the Pyhrn-Priel region or enjoying the inspiring expanses of the hilly granite landscapes of the Mühlviertel, thoughts take flight and ultimately always land right on target.

Inspiring water

Set out for new shores

Water encourages people to achieve new creative heights. This is the element of both peaceful calm and the untamed, elemental force of Nature. The best proof of this can be found in the famous lakes of the Salzkammergut region, which has inspired a range of illustrious artists from Gustav Klimt to Gustav Mahler to create exceptional works. What could be more natural than to harness the mental power of these lakes and rivers for conferences, seminars, meetings and events.

Jump-start mind and body by taking a dip in the lake at sunrise before work: in doing so, you will set the power of the mind in motion. Sit on the terrace under the open sky in the evening, listening to the Danube glide by, and order the flow of your thoughts. Perhaps you could even leave terra firma behind for a while and take a boat ride to navigate your thoughts into creative channels.

Small conference cities

Easy to reach, with charm aplenty

Small, blending urban charm with an inspiring closeness to Nature, small conference cities offer all the infrastructure you need for a flawless event. Upper Austria's smaller conference venues share much in common, yet boast very different characters: Bad Ischl, the imperial heart of the Salzkammergut; Mondsee with its scenic contrasts of mountain and lake; Bad Schallerbach with its event centre right next to the thermal baths; Ried, the trade fair town of the Innviertel.

Incidentally: if location and accessibility are important criteria for your choice of location, the area known as the "central region of Upper Austria" should catch your attention. Forming a triangle between Linz, Wels and Steyr, the economic heart of Upper Austria beats strongly here. It is a region that shifts between urban and rural charm, offering plenty of opportunity to stage conferences, seminars and events.
