Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center is proud to be a Healthy Venue, accredited by the World Obesity Federation.
The award encourages venues to support their customers, visitors and staff in making healthier choices and to minimize the negative health impacts of conference-going. This means we are committed to providing you with a venue that promotes physical activity and healthy eating.
Meetings and events are notorious for ‘diet busting behaviors’; lack of healthy options, a general encouragement for sitting and a lack of sunlight! On the flip side, healthy meeting environments are proven to improve delegate productivity and leave them with a positive memory of the event. Healthy eating and physical activity have both been shown to promote alertness and increase concentration. This in turn can help you have a better and more productive meeting as people are more likely to be engaged. In addition interactivity brings new and insightful ideas to discussions.
