The Austrian Center Vienna‘s polySTAGE, the first kinetic innovation of its kind in the world, picked up three platinum awards – the highest possible status – for Best Event Technology, Event Technology Innovation, and Immersive Technology. Many interactive additions to the polySTAGE will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Austrian Tourism Day on 22 May.

I am very proud that our new polySTAGE has just scooped three awards at the international Eventex Awards so soon after being honoured at the German Stevie Awards. It goes to show that we have created a genuine innovation for emotional events through our very own kinetic world first. These successes are spurring us on, to take the polySTAGE to the next level and make it even more interactive,” confirmed Susanne Baumann-Söllner, Managing Director of the Austria Center Vienna. “Developed in partnership with Viennese company Media Apparat, the system – which is a world first– has gone down extremely well with our customers and participants. Our corporate customers are especially excited because the polySTAGE puts an innovative tool at their disposal which communicates their brand messages particularly effectively,” she added.

The international jury was clearly impressed: “The polySTAGE is an excellent concept for a venue to offer state-of-the-art tech to transform not just the content canvas but also the visual infrastructure. The dynamic screens provide endless configurations for returning visitors to experience something different each time, from the journey to the content and storytelling,” said entrepreneur, technology specialist and jury member Sujoy Cherian. Juror Ingar Hagen continued in the same vein, praising the project’s outstanding implementation as well as the impressive possibilities that the polySTAGE opens up.

Their colleague on the panel, Tahira Endean, who is Head of Program at the IMEX Group, shared how impressed she was with just how well the polySTAGE succeeded in putting the needs of customers and participants first and using this people-first approach to stage an epic experience.

The outstanding feedback from the jurors and the overwhelmingly positive reception among customers and participants alike have inspired the team at the Austria Center Vienna to carry on developing the polySTAGE with a view to adding even more usage options. With the support of Vienna-based company Flave, a number of new interactive possibilities have been developed for the polySTAGE, which will be revealed to the public for the first time at the Austrian Tourism Day on 22 May. Also making its debut at the event, an AI avatar developed by Media Apparat will act as co-host, while an interactive game show will also be premiered.
