Austria Center Vienna
Austria Center Vienna (ACV) is Austria’s largest conference center in the international heart of contemporary Vienna. After a construction project lasting 4 years and 10 months and a brief test run, the Austria Center Vienna was officially opened on 22 April 1987 in a formal ceremony presided over by the incumbent Austrian President Kurt Waldheim, Federal Chancellor Franz Vranitzky, and high profile representatives of the building’s operating company. Surrounded by contemporary architecture and next door to a United Nations Headquarters, the venue is just minutes from the city center, the Danube, and the Donaupark.

Austria (officially the Republic of Austria) is a federal republic and a landlocked country of over 8.66 million people in Central Europe. Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna, also described as Europe’s cultural capital, is a metropolis with unique charm, vibrancy, and flair. It boasts outstanding infrastructure, is clean and safe, and has all the inspiration that you could wish for in this wonderful part of Europe.
The city’s roots lie in early Celtic and Roman settlements that transformed into a Medieval and Baroque city, and then the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The historic center of Vienna is rich in architectural examples, including Baroque castles and gardens and the late-19th-century Ringstrasse, which is lined with grand buildings, monuments, and parks. The UN-Habitat classified Vienna as the most prosperous city in the world in 2012 and 2013. The city was ranked first globally for its culture of innovation in 2007 and 2008, and sixth globally (out of 256 cities) in the 2014 Innovation Cities Index, which analyzed 162 indicators in three areas: culture, infrastructure, and markets. Vienna has been synonymous with music for centuries and was home to composers Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Johann Strauss. This outstanding musical heritage has been preserved to the present day. The Wiener Philharmoniker is one of the world’s top orchestras, the Vienna Boys’ Choir is triumphantly successful wherever it tours, and the Vienna Conservatorium has produced innumerable international award-winners in all musical disciplines. Yet Vienna also boasts a lively scene for young people — if you love music, you are sure to enjoy Vienna.
