Our congress pros newly MedTech certified.

Compliance support for medical technology companies! Our colleagues from Austropa recently became one of the first PCOs in Austria to qualify as a Trusted Partner of MedTech Europe.

At the end of 2017, Austropa Interconvention – a Verkehrsbüro MICE Services brand – was officially certified by MedTech Europe as a Trusted Partner, making it one of the first professional congress organisers to receive this certification. The Trusted Partner seal of approval confirms that a company’s employees are aware of the code of conduct and work in full compliance with its provisions.

The classic sponsorship activities in this area are being replaced with educational grants, which are made available to health facilities. In addition, conferences that receive financial support from a MedTech member company must be rated as compliant in accordance with its conference vetting system. In future, the Austropa Interconvention team will be available to provide support in all of these areas.

MedTech Europe is the European industrial association representing the in vitro diagnostic and medical technology industries. The new code of conduct governing ethical business relationships sets out clear and transparent requirements when it comes to interaction between industry and medical specialists and healthcare facilities. Generally speaking, the code of conduct focuses on the topic of financial support of doctors and medical specialists for internal corporate events, research, and medical training and education programmes.


“Austria Trend Hotel Park Royal Palace” now renamed “Radisson Blu Park Royal Palace Hotel Vienna.

Our colleagues from Austria Trend Hotels, Austria’s largest hotel group, are entering into a franchise partnership with Radisson Blu, Europe’s largest upper-upscale brand, for another one of its top hotels. The 4-star superior hotel, currently known as the Austria Trend Hotel Park Royal Palace Vienna, is now a Radisson Blu franchise. Austria Trend Hotels have already been successfully cooperating with the Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt in Salzburg since 2001. The cooperation strengthens the positioning of the Hotel Park Royal Palace as a leading international hotel in the immediate vicinity of Schönbrunn Palace. With 233 rooms and a 900 square meter conference area, the hotel is one of the leading hotels in Vienna’s event hotel industry. Particularly striking is the extraordinary architecture with gold accents and the connecting bridge to the Technical Museum.
