Welcome Message

Dear friends!

Servus, and welcome to Austria! It is our great pleasure and honour to invite you to the ICCA Research, Sales & Marketing Programme in Vorarlberg in June 2012. Vorarlberg is the westernmost province of Austria, suitably located in the thriving four-country region of Germany, Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Our spectacular showplace is the city of Bregenz, right on the shore of Lake Constance. The Bregenz Festival House was recognized as the "Best Center 2011" by the EVVC. It is the perfect setting to hold trainings, lead informative and stimulating discussions and exchange experiences.

What can you expect in Bregenz and Vorarlberg?

Impressively beautiful, well-maintained landscapes between Lake Constance and the Alps, ideal for walking, cycling or, in winter, skiing. You will find vibrant small towns and idyllic valleys. An excellent cuisine, represented by regional delicacies such as freshwater fish, a variety of cheeses, herbs, fruits and vegetables, is not to be missed. The quality of our water is so good that you can drink it directly from the tap! You will find that the locals are imaginative people who enjoy extraordinary staging and design. This is evident, for example, in the surprisingly modern architecture. Vorarlberg is considered to be a centre of modern architecture in Europe, famous for its flair of tradition combined with modernity.

Many cultural events take place all year round. The highlight is the annual Bregenz Festival, with its spectacularly staged opera performances on the world’s largest floating stage each summer.  

The blend of ease and highest professionalism create a particularly inspiring atmosphere on Lake Constance. One thing you can be quite sure of is that we’ll do our best to perfectly “stage” the event and you will be fascinated with all that Vorarlberg has to offer.

Be inspired by our world-class facilities, the natural backdrop of water and mountains and our local hospitality!

See you in Bregenz!

Even if you, or any of your team, have attended this event before, the Programme always offers something new. Whether it is new business leads, new faculty members to offer advice, new sessions addressing current issues, or meeting new industry friends facing similar issues, there is something for everyone to take away.

Five reasons why you should attend (again):
1. Education from experienced faculty with clients who “tell it like it is”
2. Unique personalised advice on your own marketing or research projects
3. One-on-one Association Database coaching from ICCA researchers
4. Fantastic networking with peers in your own age-group/experience levels
5. Exchange business and bring home new sales leads

This custom-made programme, with immediate business opportunities and personal advice on real work challenges, is an ideal event for junior to mid-level managers and client-facing executives from venues, destination marketing organisations, and PCOs.
