THE VENUES

 

WHERE ABOUTS...

 

The EFQM Forum 2018 will take place in the center of Vienna, Austria. The Forum will be held in the HOFBURG, Vienna’s imperial palace and seat of the Habsburgs as their principal imperial winter residence, as SCHÖNBRUNN Palace was their summer residence. Built in the 13th century and expanded in the centuries since, today the palace is the official residence and workplace of the President of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen. A great deal of European history was written here.

 

The Habsburg Throne Room embodies, of course, regal majesty. Against this inspired setting, Napoleon asked Marie Louise, the Emperor’s daughter, for her hand in marriage. The 26 double chandeliers of crystal glass illuminate festive gala banquets, celebratory balls and elegant congresses.

 

The ZEREMONIENSAAL is framed by the 24 surrounding Corinthian pillars in stucco lustro. The ZEREMONIENSAAL room variation is an impeccable example of imperial flair par excellence. Majestic beauty and a fantastic panorama turn conferences into unforgettable experiences.
