Linz as a conference venue

Everything speaks for Linz

Linz combines culture, nature and industry. The progressive steel production of voestalpine shapes the city just as much as the natural idyll of the Danube. Since the European Capital of Culture year 2009, the creative scene has flourished.

The designation as UNESCO City of Media Arts points to the future: every year the Ars Electronica Festival awakens international interest in new technologies. The focus is on the the connection between art, technology and society.

The city presents itself to guests in an open and inviting manner. Thanks to its central location and easy accessibility, Linz scores as a meeting place for congresses, events and seminars.

The walkability of the city area turns the whole of Linz into a congress centre: the Danube City is compact, close to nature and at the same time multi-layered. Tailor-made break arrangements and evening programmes change the perspective. Because conference culture with enjoyment, pleasure and efficiency need not be a contradiction.



In Linz, Blue Meeting® focuses on people. Encounters are made possible - both between guests and with the city's population. After all, it's about human connections that are developed to enrich us.

Austria connects Western and Eastern Europe. But it is not only geographically in the middle of Europe: the transport connections by train, plane and car are quick and uncomplicated. This means less travel time - and more time to arrive.
