It is hard to believe that we have just turned another calendar sheet and find ourselves already in March of 2015 – time to publish the first edition of our popular AustriaNewz [pdf, 2,130.3kb].

The year started busy for the team at Advantage Austria, scheduling our networking events and participation at various trade shows in both Australia and New Zealand. You will be surprised to see just how full and varied our Events Calendar presents itself (see page 12 of the attached newsletter).

One of our aims for 2015 was to establish a Twitter presence for Advantage Austria in Australia and New Zealand. Nowadays, it is almost a rule of business etiquette to be part of the virtual world of the blue bird. With the send-out of this newsletter we also officially launch our Twitter account. If you wish to get daily updates on interesting new facts from and about Austria, you are invited to follow us right here .

We kick-off our “trade show season” with our participation at AUSPACK 2015 in Melbourne where we will be presenting 9 innovative Austrian companies at stand No. 322. We would also like to invite you to our Australian-Austrian networking event which will be held during the same week in Melbourne. This event will be hosted by us together with European Business on Thursday, 26 March 2015. Please refer to page 11 for further details or visit our event website to register.

Other exciting topics in this issue include:

  • Green Building Solutions made in Austria (page 3).
  • Austrian company OMV is New Zealand’s biggest oil producer (page 6).
  • Check out our popular “Business Opportunities” section (pages 7 and 8) to learn more about four Austrian companies looking to expand their presence in Australia.
  • Company profiles on the nine Austrian companies that are participating with us at AUSPACK in Melbourne can be found on pages 9 and 10

Should you have any queries about Austria or about Austrian companies in particular, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Best wishes,

Guido Stock
Consul General & Trade Commissioner
