"Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg is an extreme upgrade for Salzburg as a business location. Salzburg is therefore becoming a meeting point for experts and business circles, having an important positive effect on the local economy and tourism. It was definitely the right decision to keep the exhibition center in the city and to invest heavily in the re-design of the exhibition center."
