Useful tools for your event in Salzburg

Transparency is an extremely important part when creating value. Moreover, people are known to have more confidence when choosing and investing someplace where transparency is involved. Yet in many businesses, this is something commonly avoided. Some might think their secrets can be unveiled, while others will strive to give their partners and customers the most authentic and real experience out there.

In the MICE sector however, there are convention bureaus that have made transparency a big part of their culture. The following links on the Salzburg Convention Bureau are a great example of the Bureau’s choice for transparency when it comes to event planning, which is clearing the way for a better, more open business and event world.

The list contains punctual general and technical information, as well as up to date Salzburg Congresses price list and internet fees.

Big international events keep hotel preformances in Europe positive

The new results from the ECM-MKG European Destinations Observatory report highlight differences between destinations but also continuity in the positive trends since 2013 for almost all European countries partly thanks to a variety of big international events. 

For the first semester of 2014, most European cities followed a positive trend, with an occupancy rate increasing by 1.6 points over 2013.

With its solid business tourism, Germany experienced a strong increase in its Average Daily Rate with Düsseldorf in pole position. Hamburg midscale and upscale segments also performed quite well in the first term of 2014, mostly thanks to corporate and MICE business as well as national and international trade fairs, (e.g. Aircraft EXPO, IN‐cosmetics or Internoga). Some leisure events such as Hamburg Port Festival and Marathon (both in May) had positive impact on the overall hotel performance, too.
