The Salzburg Exhibition & Congress Center is unique due to its geographical location in the heart of Europe and Austria, near the German border. Its perfect accessibility (directly at motorway A1, only 5 minutes by car from Salzburg airport and railway station), about 3,000 parking spaces on site and the new multi-purpose halls make the Exhibition Center even more attractive. 10 exhibition halls with an overall exhibition area of 39,257 m2 incl. the Salzburgarena with an area of 2,545 m2, attract more than 600,000 visitors annually.
New multi-purpose halls provide space for major conference fairs
34 million Euros were invested to build a new multi-purpose hall in 2011, offering newest technological standards on 15,165 m2 in hall 10 and a conference area of 1,972 m2. This enables us to organize conferences and major conference fairs with up to 5,000 participants in Salzburg. The new seminar and conference rooms provide the customers with a perfect business platform.
Up to three major events under the same roof
The new multi-purpose hall consists of nine parts that can be used separately as well. Another possibility is to divide the hall and the foyer into three parts, each with its own entrance, so that in addition to major conferences, three events can take place at the same time under the same roof. The multi-purpose hall and the Salzburgarena are connected directly by a corridor, enabling the simultaneous use of both event venues.
An important economic factor for Salzburg
In the framework of indirect profitability, macroeconomic production results of about 158,4 million Euros could be achieved and 1,300 workplaces could be secured in Salzburg thanks to the activities at the Exhibition Center. This is particularly beneficial for the regional economy, hotel and restaurant business.
