Bring people back together – in person, virtually or in a hybrid event!

Many events and conferences had to be postponed last year. Online solutions are a good alternative for reconnecting people. But companies want more than just webinars or simple online lectures. Instead, participants should also be able to actively participate and create lasting experiences.

With “VB2Conn@ct” we offer a comprehensive product for the organization of virtual & hybrid meetings with appropriate tools & live support.

“We are currently receiving a lot of inquiries, from the pharmaceutical sector in particular, to support scientific conferences. Flexibility and efficient cost planning will play a major role. In many planned face-to-face conferences in autumn, virtual alternatives must always be included, just in case.“ says Peter Tolinger, Managing Director of Verkehrsbüro Business Touristic.

Are you planning to move your products forward in an innovative workshop? Do you want to introduce your latest product to your customers during an online roadshow, including virtual exhibition stands? Are you organizing a global conference where speakers from different countries are connected? There are countless ways to make familiar events virtually attractive and lively.

Precise preparation is the key to success – virtual and hybrid:

  • Programming the event page
  • Marketing / Sponsoring
  • Participant management & billing
  • Submission of scientific abstracts
  • Technical support, streaming & recording
  • Reports during the event
  • Organization & preparation of the speakers
  • Processes in accordance with current Covid-19 measures

… these services & much more are taken over by our professionals at VB2Conn@ct.

TIP: With hybrid events, the choice of location and “management on site” also play a major role. Our colleagues from the Austria Trend Hotels, in the Hotel Savoyen Vienna, offer conference facilities for up to 1000 guests as well as a new “Streaming Suite” for online recordings and live streaming. In this way, speakers can be professionally added to all meetings and / or their contributions can also be recorded.

Put meetings in the limelight. With our innovative tools, our creative experts can turn your virtual event into a unique experience. Interested? Make an appointment for a live demo now!

Die Verkehrsbüro Group erweitert ihr Hotelportfolio um eine vollkommen neue Marke: BASSENA.

Ab dem Frühjahr 2020 wird BASSENA das Hotellerie-Portfolio unserer Kollegen komplettieren – neben den 24 Austria Trend Hotels, der Suite im Schloß Schönbrunn und den beiden Franchise-Hotels der Marke Radisson Blu .

Das erste Hotel der neuen Marke – BASSENA Wien Messe Prater – wird im Frühjahr 2020 seine Pforten öffnen. Dazu wird am bisherigen Standort des Austria Trend Hotels Messe Prater Wien in der Messestraße 2 im 2. Wiener Gemeindebezirk kräftig umgebaut. Für unsere Kollegen ist BASSENA Wien Messe Prater der ideale Standort, um dieses Konzept am Wiener Markt einzuführen.

Die Verkehrsbüro Group will mit einem klaren Wohlfühl-Charakter und hohem Designanspruch punkten. Es sollen Rückzugsmöglichkeiten genauso wie Community-Angebote geschaffen werden. Beispiele dafür sind:

  • der zentrale Küchentisch zur Begegnung
  • der Bibliotheksbereich zum Verweilen und arbeiten
  • Speisen & Getränke werden für die Gäste rund um die Uhr zur Verfügung stehen
  • Gästekühlschränke, an denen man sich selbst bedienen kann, runden das Konzept ab

Die Geschichte der “Wiener Bassena” – die vormals ja DER Ort der Begegnung in den Zinshäusern war – hat unsere Kollegen inspiriert. Und dass das weltberühmte Wiener Wasser mit richtigen Bassena-Brunnen in den Hotels auch noch inszeniert werden kann, macht es zu etwas ganz Besonderem.

Mit dem neuen Konzept BASSENA verfolgt die Verkehrsbüro Hotellerie auch einen ganz konkreten Wachstumskurs. 2022 soll unter BASSENA das „VIENNA TWENTY TWO“ eröffnet werden und auch in den österreichischen Landeshauptstädten wird derzeit intensiv evaluiert.

The next World Expo will take place in Dubai from 20 October 2020 until 10 April 2021.

Inspired by Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, EXPO 2020 will explore visions of the future, and concepts and technologies for living together in an increasingly networked world.

Themed in dialogue with austria, the Austrian pavilion will present innovative and creative solutions for the future. The striking and carefully considered architecture clearly shows what the combination of traditional and contemporary building techniques can achieve:

  • the pavilion is made of intersecting cones which are rendered internally with lime plaster.
  • The tops of the cones are cut to different levels, which creates different sized openings for light to enter the area below and provides an impressive experience of the space.
  • The synthesis between the age-old spatial experience and digital high-tech presentation technologies creates a unique overall experience.

Book your tickets for Expo 2020.

As part of your trip to Dubai you will receive a welcome drink in the VIP area of the Austrian pavilion. After exploring everything it has to offer, we will organize admission to a further three country pavilions with priority admission. This trip is also a perfect opportunity for Austrian companies to book space for individual events in the unusual atmosphere of the multifunctional VIP lounge, which opens up on to the courtyard of the Austrian pavilion.

Verkehrsbüro MICE Services, a partner of the EXPO office of Austrian Economic Chambers, will be more than happy to help you organize your group travel arrangements for EXPO 2020 in Dubai. We can take care of flights, hotels, transfers in Dubai as well as bespoke sightseeing trips and visitor programmes.

Take your next incentive trip in Bella Italia and see the country at its most beautiful. Our MICE professionals give you the heads-up on Naples, Amalfi, Positano and much more.

Naples, capital of Campania

Without a doubt, Naples is one of Italy’s most captivating and unmissable cities. Bustling and in many ways chaotic, but loveable nonetheless, we recommend exploring subterranean Naples with a visit to the Tunnel Borbonico or Bourbon Tunnel. Or you can put your cooking skills to the test in a pizza-making competition at one of the city’s traditional pizzerias.

The unique Amalfi coast

The best way to discover the most beautiful strip on the coast, between Sorrento and Ravello, is to hop on a Vespa or take a vintage Fiat Cinquecento – all “molto italiano”! There are plenty of wonderful hotels and restaurants along the Amalfi coast waiting to cast a spell over guests.

An evening on Capri
Spend at least one night on Capri in one of the classy five-star hotels and get a real flavour of the island’s unique flair after the day-trippers have left for home. The most stylish way to travel to Capri is by helicopter or on a private rental yacht. To explore the island, take a cable car or “Capritaxi”, or jump on a boat and head to the peaceful bays with their beautiful azure waters.

Discover Pompeii

Discover Pompeii’s historic sites at your own speed or climb the (still) dormant Mount Vesuvius by renting a special Ferrovia Circumvesuviana train. Pompeii’s stunning archaeological excavations can also provide a unique historical backdrop for a gala dinner.

Welcome to the greatest playground in Austria – the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

Want to give your next incentive trip a competitive edge? Are you looking for a destination that is quick and easy to get to and offers no end of fun and excitement for teambuilding activities – without blowing your budget? The Spielberg region – home to the famous Red Bull Ring – ticks all the boxes.

Action-packed experiences

On non-race days you can set the adrenaline coursing through your veins out on the Red Bull Ring track in various vehicles – either by taking to the wheel yourself or as a passenger. You can also put your skills as a driver to the test at the Driving Center where you will learn all about vehicle control and finding that all-important perfect line. Professional instructors are on hand to provide support and guidance on all racing activities. Visitors also have the chance to try their hand at off-roading.

Red Bull Ring Spielberg

Experience authentic Styrian hospitality and cuisine

The exclusive setting for your event is provided by nearby first-class accommodations such as Schloss Gabelhofen, the art nouveau Steirerschlössl villa or the G’Schlössl Murtal with its fantastic spa facilities. Culinary flights of fancy are on the menu at various locations including Landhotel Schönberghof with its amazing views out over the entire Red Bull Ring. And if your team are in the market for something slightly more rustic, then you need look no further than the Kühbreinhof. This utterly charming option elevates the famous Styrian apple to new heights in amazing new varieties of must cider, combined with delicious cold cuts.

No matter what the time of year, the door to the Spielberg region is always open for your next event. Ask our MICE professionals about our bespoke packages!

Are you looking to offer your participants that little bit more action and fun, while giving them the opportunity to experience some of nature’s most impressive sights? Then Iceland, on the edge of the Arctic circle, is the perfect destination!

But what exactly do we mean by action and fun?

  • Rafting tours on the icy waters of a glacial river
  • Ice climbing on a glacier
  • Snowmobile trips through the snow covered mountains
  • Quadbike tours on the long dark sandy beach at Reynisfjara.

Wonderful picnic lunches in the great outdoors and a relaxing dip in the thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon add to the magic of the experience.

Close to nature

Another unforgettable option is a day out on the high seas spent whale watching. With any luck, your boat will soon be surrounded by various different species of whales native to these waters. The island’s other natural highlights – including its famous geysers and stunning waterfalls – are also well worth a visit.

The incredible Aurora Borealis

If you plan your trip between late autumn and early spring, there’s a good chance that you will see the unique Northern Lights ‑ the Aurora Borealis – in all their glory. Iceland, island of contrasts and extremes, is the perfect destination where one experience follows the next.
