As the ideal conference destination, Styria offers everything a guest could possibly desire.
The ‘Green Heart’ recipe for unforgettable events comprises the finest ingredients:
Savour the typical Styrian zest for life and the wonderful backdrop as the seasons roll around – whether cycling in spring, hiking in summer, enjoying gourmet harvest time in autumn or skiing/cross-country skiing in winter! Wellness and cultural options as well as the excitement supplied by events such as the Nightrace and Formula 1 are the cherry on the cake for successful conferences and congress events all year round. Organise your event with us – Steiermark Convention provides competent support and professional organisation!
Bring your seminar day to an invigorating close amidst some breathtaking natural scenery; boost your team spirit and recharge your batteries for meetings. Hike from glaciers to wine valleys – between the Dachstein, the Hochschwab and the Almenland Nature Park until you reach the gently rolling “Weinland” (wine country). Incentives offered during the winter include 677 kilometres of slopes, snowshoe tours through unspoiled nature and traditional tavern nights.
Highlights in the nature:
Relax and unwind at your conference hotel’s wellness area after a productive day of workshopping. Styria’s numerous oases of tranquillity and thermal spas tucked away amidst alpine meadows and forests inspire the mind to come up with fresh business ideas and allow your creativity to soar. Find your inner balance and start your next meeting feeling refreshed and restored.
“Eating and drinking brings people together,” they say around here – and for very good reason. Its remarkable warmth and hospitality makes Styria the ideal gourmet destination for conference and congress guests. Surprise your customers or employers with culinary experiences featuring regional specialities and local producers.
Discover and enjoy culture out in the countryside as an incentive activity, a business trip or as part of your event’s supporting programme: attend a variety of traditional celebrations such as the annual “Aufsteirern” folk culture festival in Graz, the “Narzissenfest” flower festival in Bad Aussee or a trip to the openair museum in Stübing. Whether relishing a cup of hot glühwein at one of the many Christmas markets, visiting the famous Lipizzaner horses at the Piber Federal Stud Farm or admiring the basilica in Mariazell, conference guests can experience Styrian culture in all its facets.
