For the Austrian capital and European MICE hub of Vienna, these latest measures, coupled with the Vienna Meeting Fund 2021-2023 (€4 million of aid to national and international event organisers hosting meetings in the city), reflects a sustained effort to re-energise the MICE industry.
Event relaxations include:
· No limit to the number of participants
· Minimum distance rule removed
· No obligation to wear masks
For events welcoming 100+ persons, there is an obligation for all participants to comply with the ‘3-G rule’ and either be vaccinated, tested or recovered. Furthermore, event planners must notify authorities. For events with 500+ persons, a permit must be obtained. Further information can be found here.
Leading the way with one of the first major events taking place under these relaxed regulations, Vienna welcomes the European Congress of Radiology 2021 Summer Edition from 1-3 July. The hybrid event will welcome over 100 onsite attendees as well as online participants.
