Conference Venue Graz

Where science meets art, culture and passion

Organisers of scientific conferences in particular have appreciated Graz as a conference destination for many years. Being Austria’s second largest city as well as an important research and business location, Graz has, with good reason, evolved into a renowned conference venue that enjoys an excellent international reputation. Every year, approximately 60,000 conference guests make use of the historic and modern congress centres. They appreciate the city’s easy accessibility, as much as its sophisticated cuisine and famous Austrian hospitality.

A variety of supporting programmes and day excursions, served with Styrian delicacies and regional wines, add culinary value to any event. Worth mentioning is the pleasant size of the Styrian capital. In fact, many of the excellent hotels are within walking distance of the conference centres. The rich choice of sights and cultural events is another decisive reason for choosing Graz.
