Innsbruck MICE Dominates the Alps

3,000 participants from all over the world traveled to Innsbruck last year alone for two major conferences, the European Society of Thoracic Surgery (ESTS) and the International Society for Diabetes in Childhood and Adolescence (ISPAD).

Innsbruck, the major city in the Alps, is now only second to Vienna in the whole of Austria, according to the latest tourist statistics, with a new record of 3.2 million overnight stays for the full past year. The MICE sector is contributing to this success with the wide range of cultural, sporting and leisure activities in the Olympic region.

Christian Mayerhofer, CEO of Congress Messe Innsbruck (CMI), says: “Innsbruck is able to maintain its position as a top destination and compares favourably with international competition, not least because of its unique combination of mountain scenery and urban landscape, the short distances and excellent air, road and rail links.
