The Vienna Convention Bureau is moving (6/26/2014)
After 23 years the Vienna Tourist Board and the Vienna Convention Bureau will be moving to new premises. The Vienna Tourist Board moved to Palais Grassalkovics in Vienna's 2nd district in 1991, but for a long time now the building has been too small to accommodate all our staff. This is why for many years now the Vienna Convention Bureau and other teams have been operating from buildings in the vicinity of the palais. At the new address there will now be space for all our employees in a single building.
