Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainability is an important topic for Exhibition Center Salzburg. Starting with our workplaces, over separated waste disposal during trade fairs, to energy saving measures on the complete site. In the cooperation with suppliers we do not only focus on quality but also on short transport ways in order to minimize CO2 emissions. Further corporate social responsibility measures are:


  • Exhibition Center Salzburg is provided with eco-energy that is produced in small-scale hydro power plants in Salzburg by Salzburg AG.
  • Daylight in the exhibition halls provides for a pleasant atmosphere and ensures the energy reduction.
  • All spotlights and strip lights are equipped with fluorescent lamps.
  • Motion sensors are installed in all corridors and toilets in order to reduce the energy consumption caused by constantly burning lamps.
  • All ventilation and air conditioning devices are equipped with a heat recovery system.


  • All sanitary facilities are equipped with water-saving fixtures to ensure economical water consumption.
  • We use environmentally compatible cleaning products in order to protect the ground water.

Waste disposal:

  • Waste collection spots for waste separation are available in the whole exhibition area.
  • In terms of waste separation we receive professional support from experienced disposal companies.


  • When cooking for the trade fair and conference guests, our caterers mainly use regional and market fresh products from certified suppliers. This is how we try to prevent long transport routes, minimize CO2 emissions and serve fresh and top-quality food to our visitors.


  • All events at the Exhibition & Congress Center Salzburg and Salzburgarena can be conveniently reached by public transport. Thanks to a cooperation between the Exhibition Center and the Salzburg AG, visitors can use the transport to self-organized trade fairs and events for free. Furthermore, a bus shuttle bringing visitors from the nearby stadium in Kleßheim to the Exhibition Center and back is available if requested.
  • Our staff members use electric bikes on the exhibition site, allowing them to cover greater distances quickly and without using too much energy.
