 In 2012 Vienna was once again confirmed, now for the seventh time in a row, as the number one conference city by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), with 181 international meetings in 2011.

"In 2012 Vienna continued to develop its international outlook as a destination. The 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt no doubt contributed to the result," said Norbert Kettner, director of the Vienna Tourist Board.
