Hofburg Congress Center, located in the very centre of the city, offers a unique ambience for hosting the 15th IAEE European conference. The Hofburg Palace complex was built between the 13th - 20th century. The different wings of the former imperial residence of the Habsburgs portray the architectural periods of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque up to Classicism.
Until 1918 the Hofburg Palace was the seat of the Habsburg dynasty. The conference can be held today in the same halls where the Emperors held their audiences, gala dinners and royal balls, or where Empress Maria Theresia was baptised on May 15, 1717.
The Hofburg's historical chambers have maintained their original character, and are furnished with modern technical equipment and offer a stunning backdrop for an exceptional IAEE European conference.
Vienna is well-known for the Viennese Waltz, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Boys Choir, Wiener Schnitzel and St. Stephens Cathedral. Art, culture and the city itself make a unique mix of tradition and modern times.
The tradition of Vienna as a major conference site dates back to the year 1815, when the city hosted the peace talks following the Napoleonic Wars (Congress of Vienna).
Vienna is clean, green and safe. Delegates to the IAEE European Conference will feel at ease when discovering the many facets of this metropolis. Vienna is located in the very heart of Europe - this is of benefit to all participants, who will be able to reach Vienna easily either by plane or train. In addition the Viennese public transport offers good connections and easy accessibility within the whole city.
In Vienna, tradition is not only on exhibit in museums but is a pulsing part of every-day life. We guarantee that delegates to our meeting as well as accompanying persons will not be bored while exploring the city aside the conference.
