Dipl.-Ing. Harald Preuner

Chairman of the supervisory board

"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."

Komm.- Rat. Mag. Peter Genser

Deputy Chairman of the supervisory board
Vice-president of the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce

"With its annual indirect profitability of 158,4 million Euros, Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg is an important motor for Salzburg's economy. Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg furthermore ensures the securing of about 1,300 workplaces in the region and the releasing of tax revenues of about 19 million Euros from public authorities."

Bernhard Auinger

Mayor of the City of Salzburg

"For the city of Salzburg the Exhibition and Congress Center is an important economic driving force. The feasibility study for the realisation of a direct connection to the regional train will be driven forth. With this add-on to the public transport the location will play a major key role for the city’s traffic relief. The Exhibition and Congress Center supports us to develop Salzburg as leading city in Austria."

Dr. Manfred Pammer

Director of the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce

"Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg is an essential part of the business location Salzburg. With the construction of the new multi-purpose hall, enabling the organisation of major conferences with up to 4,500 participants in the future, the foundations for a positive future development of Exhibition Center Salzburgs were laid."
