Convention location Salzburg wins second place in the Meeting Star Awards


As a convention destination, Salzburg is among the best!

Salzburg has landed second place in the Regional Destination category of the Meeting Star Awards. Both convention centres in Salzburger Land, namely the Salzburg Congress and Congress Saalfelden, were placed in the Top 10 Convention Centres in Europe!

The meeting industry's renowned "Kongres Magazin" professional journal hands out the Meeting Star Awards each year as part of a gala event held at the Conventa Trade Show in Ljubljana.

Criteria such as the natural and cultural surroundings, tourism, and meetings and transport infrastructure, as well as the marketing activities of the convention vendors, are compared and rated.

This was the eighth time the Meeting Star Awards have been given out by Kongres Magazin and the Conventa Trade Show. The best convention destinations in south-east and central Europe were awarded, and the best conference hotels, convention centres and events in 2015 were announced.

Place number two for convention destination Salzburg

A total of 45 cities were compared by Kongres Magazin. Salzburg scored especially well in the "Regional Destinations" category, coming in second place. Particular emphasis is placed on the many opportunities in the convention destination, the high quality of life and the cosmopolitan mix of visitors. The convenient location in the middle of Europe was also taken into consideration. Salzburg offers the best conditions for mid-sized conventions, with up to 2,500 visitors. In addition to state-of-the-art convention infrastructure, factors such as culture play a major role.
