Since the opening of “Messe Wien” five years ago, a total 3.5 million visitors have attended 650 international congresses and exhibitions. More than 30,000 national and international exhibitors have presented at these events and have also used Vienna as an “export hub” for the neighbouring new EU member states.

In the fifth year since its founding, Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien achieved a new record. Never before were as many major international congresses held at the exhibition centre as in this year. In addition to the 58th World Congress of the UITP (International Union of Public Transport), numerous other events are taking place at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center including numerous international medical conferences and IFRA Expo, the newspaper industry’s leading trade fair. A total of around 60,000 visitors are expected - resulting in around 200,000 overnights for Vienna’s tourist industry.
The Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center hosts major events with up to 25,000 participants and is among Europe’s most modern venues for exhibitions and congresses.
