Austria Center Vienna demonstrates best in class digital infrastructure

INCON has published its latest best practice case study which features the 2016 digital infrastructure award winners, the Austria Center Vienna. The award, now in its third year, celebrates best in class Digital Infrastructure in meetings venues around the world. The Case Study identifies three distinguishing features of the Austria Center Vienna to demonstrate why it won the award and what makes it a digital leader in the global meetings industry.

The 2016 Winner Case Study covers the effective digital strategy and unrivalled WiFi implemented by the Austria Center Vienna as well as the trusted international IT Partner H82 that supports the award winning WLAN infrastructure.

Roslyn McLeod, INCON Co Chair said: “We are delighted that Vienna has won this year’s award they were by far our strongest entry. We hope that meeting venues will review our series of digital infrastructure case studies and review their digital infrastructure accordingly ”.

Susanne Baumann-Söllner, Managing Director of the Austria Center Vienna commented “I’m very pleased that our efforts of the past few years are now clearly bearing fruit. Especially in the last three years we have shown just how effective the Austria Centre Vienna is at staging successful international congresses. So winning the Digital Infrastructure Award is a success that also demonstrates the excellent standing the Austria Center Vienna when it comes to digital infrastructure at large-scale national and international conferences. These developments are striking the right note with customers and delegates. I am also very delighted with the faith that our IT-partner H82 is pulling in the same direction as us. Together we succeed to realize great innovations – such as the awarded high quality WLAN for 20,000 participants”.

INCON unveils findings of its Fourth Annual Survey of the Global Association Conference Market

INCON unveils findings of its Fourth Annual Survey of the Global Association Conference Market
INCON today unveiled findings of its fourth annual survey of the global association conference market at the IMEX trade expo in Frankfurt.

While the overall business outlook is flat at best, there is a definite drop in positive sentiment when compared with the 2010 and 2011 survey findings. Budgeting is identified as the number one trend impacting the association sector as conference budgets continue to be scrutinised and planners seek best value in negotiating the highest level of event income. Encouragingly, suppliers are reacting effectively to market pressures on pricing to help INCON partners confirm business.

‘’It is interesting to see that trends identified in our surveys of previous years are being realised’’ commented Inge Hanser, INCON Co Chair. ‘’The strong desire to move up the supply chain, central to the 2010 survey, is taking shape with a robust focus on Consulting/Strategic Meeting Management Services both as an ongoing trend and also as the most popular description of the present value proposition of our partner companies’’ added Fellow Co Chair, Roslyn McLeod.

This research initiative contains the statistical analysis of 27 completed responses received in March 2012 from survey recipients who included managing directors of 10 INCON Partner companies. A complete survey report providing a detailed statistical breakdown of the findings is available on or by contacting
