Vienna Suits Up for 2022

The Austria Centre Vienna recently unveiled the largest construction project at the venue which includes plans to open up the venue more. In particular, a new access building with skywalk and three additional entrances will make it more convenient to use the different levels for separate events held in parallel. Parts of the roof of the new access building will feature extensive greenery.
A canopy – the danubeSAIL – will also be added to the square outside the building, making the space more attractive overall and opening it up for local residents and passers-by.  If required, the area beneath the danubeSAIL can be closed off to create a multifunctional 4,200m² hall which can be used by events and congresses for a wide variety of purposes.
Construction work is due to start in April 2019, with the danubeSAIL slated for completion in March 2020. The entire project is scheduled to be wrapped up in spring 2022. The project will be financed by the venue’s owner – the Republic of Austria – and the City of Vienna.
