As guests of Hellmut Narz, USA group and incentive manager for Austrian Airlines, and the team at the Vienna Convention Bureau, a group of our readers had the opportunity to spend a wonderful weekend visiting Vienna before the EIBTM show in May.

The Radisson SAS Palais Hotel played host for three nights and was joined by neighboring Vienna Marriott in entertaining the group. Both properties offer meeting and incentive groups outstanding service and deluxe accommodations, combined with a convenient location opposite the expansive city park and the Strauss memorial.

A grand evening was hosted by the Hotel Imperial (Starwood Hotels & Resorts), complete with a transfer by horse drawn carriages.
