The Vienna Fair looks to the future with optimism. According to a press release, 32 guest events have already been scheduled for 2022. Around 415,000 participants from home and abroad are expected. „The investments made in the venue by our parent company RX have paid off“, explains Martina Candillo, Director Congresses & Events, counting these numbers as success.

The „United European Gastroenterology Week“ (UEG) and the „Congress of the European Hematology Association“ (EHA) are among the associations that have chosen to host their congresses in Vienna, states the Exhibition and Congress Center. The „Eurofinance – International Treasury Management“ will also be back at the venue yet again. 

There will also be new events: For example, the „International Joint Conferences in Artificial Intelligence“ (IJCAI) will take place in Vienna for the first time.

Although the focus is set to move back to live events, Fair Vienna reports that organisers are still seeking the safety net offered by hybrid events. “Now having the Wifi 6 network standard enables us to guarantee optimum conditions for such events”, Candillo adds.
