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”.

Why Darmstadtium won top honors for its outstanding digital infrastructure?
INCON, the Global Partnership of leading Conference Organisers chose the darmstadtium as the 2014 winner of the INCON Digital Infrastructure Award. The darmstadtium overcame strong competition from the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, which were recognised as 1st and 2nd runners up for the 2014 award. As nominations open for the 2015 award, INCON has developed a best practice case study to explain how the darmstadtium was selected from such an outstanding group of award entries from many major international convention centres around the world.
The INCON Award rests on a simple principle that meetings are better when a first class digital infrastructure is made available along with applications and tools that enhance the delegate productivity and experience. Roslyn McLeod, INCON Co Chair explains “INCON hopes that this case study will serve to inspire and inform convention centres and hotel conference venues as they strive to put cutting edge digital infrastructure services in place.”

The call to entry for the 2015 INCON Digital Infrastructure Award will open on 3rd of November. This year, INCON has opened the award to two categories:
Convention Centres
Convention Hotels
On 3 Nov, application forms can be downloaded from the INCON website: www.incon-pco.com/award. There is no entry fee. All it takes for a venue to be considered is a completed application. Once all the applications are received, the judges will review them and the winners will be announced in May 2015.
