Destination Champion

What is a Destination Champion?

We believe that the best way to add value to our clients is to understand their requirements and recommend destinations and venues based on our own personal knowledge. We are curious and want to see what’s new and we aim to visit our key destinations a least once a year and review over 15 venues in each location.

Vienna

Vienna often places 1st on global rankings of International MICE locations, and after visiting it’s easy to see why. The city boasts a wealth of hotels and venues, cultural establishments and world-class catering. While the city is known for its historic centre & culture, and indeed the palaces and galleries are not to be missed, Vienna also offers modern comforts and cutting edge design, as well as a keen focus on CSR and environmental sustainability. Vienna’s size is an advantage, as it is big enough to offer a large choice of venues and incentives, whilst also remaining easy to explore. Public transport is quick, affordable, and far-reaching, while the airport serves as a hub for Europe and the Middle East (with a 2 hour flight time from the UK), which boosts its position in the heart of Europe. As well as the technical aspects, in which it excels, Vienna makes for a personable and charming city, with a high standard of living, low crime rates, and a vibrant cultural scene.

Why I would recommend Vienna

I would be cheeky and recommend Vienna for large meetings, small meetings, and anything in between. As befitting a world-class MICE location Vienna can offer a range of options to suit a wide variety of preferences, appetites, time-frames and budgets

Key Attractions

As a legacy of the Habsburg Empire, Vienna is stocked full of museums, palaces and galleries (most of which offer venue hire), which are well worth a visit to dig a little deeper into Viennese heritage. The city is also known as the centre of relaxed café-culture – accept no substitutes! Additionally, Vienna’s status as a centre of live music beckons for fans, while shopping is plentiful for those wishing to lighten their wallets. Vienna is also known for its dancing balls, a chance for visitors to glam up and try something on the fabulous side of life.

Infrastructure and Transport

The best way to explore Vienna is by foot, as the city is compact enough to allow visitors a chance to look around without straying too far. The city has a plethora of cycle lanes as part of its green philosophy, and also has efficient tram, bus, and metro services. In particular visitors can buy an affordable 3-day pass to take advantage of these services. Vienna airport is 20 minutes from the city centre, either by road or rail, and other than watching out for bicycles and trams travelling around is very convenient.

Excursions

Not far from the city centre the beautiful Austrian countryside can weave its charms, as well as the traditional Austrian heurigers (wine-houses), and of course palaces such as the Belvedere. Austria’s second city Salzburg is not far away, the location for “The Sound of Music”.
