Venue and transportation

Vienna, Austria’s capital, has earned a well-deserved reputation as a prominent centre for scientific research and a preferred choice for hosting conferences and academic assemblies. In fact, the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) ranked Vienna first in terms of congress metropolises for 2022. The city’s central location in Europe and excellent transportation connectivity with international flights and top-ranked public transportation make it accessible for attendees from around the globe. Moreover, the city’s cultural and historical charm, coupled with a high quality of life, adds an enriching dimension to any conference experience.

For general information about public transportation, what to do in Vienna outside of congress hours, and more, visit the official site of the Vienna Tourist Board and Vienna Convention Bureau.


ET 2024 will take place at the Messe Wien Exhibition and Congress Center, a state-of-the-art facility offering modern lecture halls, meeting rooms, and ample space for a memorable exhibition. Next to the congress centre, the Prater area, one of Vienna’s biggest parks, offers delegates the possibility to take a relaxing stroll between sessions or end their day at one of the area’s many restaurants which range from the classic sausage stands to restaurants for more refined tastes.

Vienna is easy to access, with Austria’s largest airport, Vienna International Airport, connecting the city to a dense network of European locations as well as international hubs.

From the airport, the city can be quickly reached via rail, bus, or by the direct City Airport Train. Train tickets must be purchased before boarding the train at kiosks located next to the platforms. Bus tickets may be purchased in advance, or upon boarding the bus. Please note that a Wiener Linien ticket (Vienna public transport) is not valid to the airport.

A taxi queue is available outside the airport for a cost of about €50 to the city centre.

Messe Wien is centrally located in Vienna, and can be reached by the U2 Subway line at stops “Messe-Prater” or “Krieau”. The Airport bus line 3 also brings you to Messe entrance D from the airport in about 30 minutes.

Please be aware that due to construction, the subway line U2 currently only operates between stations “Schottentor” and “Seestadt.” Direct replacement lines along the Ring Boulevard are the tram lines D, 1, 2 and 71. This closure does not effect the stations directly connected to Messe Wien.
