Graz – the second largest city in Austria with 270.000 inhabitants – offers ideal conditions for successful conventions. There are many reasons for choosing Graz. However, all event organisers have one thing in common – they are highly enthusiastic about picturesque Old Town, the attractive cultural program, the quality and diversity of the cuisine and the excellent infrastructure of the conference venues.
