After a year and a half in the making, the MuseumsQuartier will open its latest attraction at the end of April. Located on the roof of the Leopold Museum, the MQ Terrace and MQ Libelle will add a new dimension to the popular cultural complex. The panoramic views of Vienna's historic city center from the MQ Terrace, also open to the general public, are accessed via external lifts. The MQ Libelle – a multifunctional space measuring approximately 600 m² – is available both for art and culture projects and can also be hired for third-party events. From conferences and gala dinners to cocktail receptions, its central location, practical external space and a host of other contemporary features already have the MQ Libelle tipped to become one of the city's most promising event locations.

DanubeSAIL at the ACV
The new covered space on Bruno-Kreisky-Platz – the danubeSAIL – will be officially inaugurated and enter into service as a congress hall in March at the European Congress of Radiology. The final touches are currently being added to the space. Work on the new hall – the Austria Center Vienna's largest construction project since it first opened around 30 years ago – began at the start of 2019. The danubeSAIL introduces an additional 4,200 m² of space to the venue – the area will also be available for the general public to use in various ways when it is not booked for events. Under the next phase of development, a new entrance building and a panorama walk will allow the different levels of the venue to be used independently of one another, while providing direct access between the main building and the exhibition areas.

Palais Berg adds another unique location in the heart of Vienna in 2019. The flexible venue on Schwarzenbergplatz comprises two differently sized main halls, and is equipped with high-quality sound and lighting systems, an 8 m² LED videowall and several projection surfaces. The appeal of the Lothringen Saal (380 m²) and the Pestalozzi Saal (100 m²) lies in their futuristic design elements and unique ambience. The Lothringen Saal can either be used on its own, or opened up to include the Pestalozzi Saal with a total area of 480 m². Other highlights at the event location include the light-filled reception area, as well as an additional seminar room (150 m²) which can be accessed independently of the other spaces and has its own buffet area. Palais Berg can be fully adapted to accommodate bespoke designs and configurations and is supported by a host of partner enterprises when it comes to catering and technical services. The location was converted by Söhne & Partner architects, who are renowned for their innovative space concepts.
