196+ forum Vienna

26 – 28 November 2023

This was the 196+ forum Vienna 2023!

With this year’s focus being on Sustainability and its three pillars Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) we aimed to create a dynamic event that facilitated cross-industry collaboration, fostered the exchange of innovative ideas and brought together experts from various fields to drive meaningful impact. We wanted industries to exchange best-practice examples through workshops and have our guests leave with tangible benefits.

Programme 196+ forum Vienna 2023

Together with the Vienna Tourist Board and Museum Booster we created an international platform that builds bridges and connected experts from various sectors. We had three days of networking, panel discussions and cross-industry learnings with the main question being:
What can we learn from each other and how can we cooperate?

Highlight: The Hotel Innovation Award 2023

Just like innovations continuously change so does the focus of our 196+ forum Vienna and the criteria for winning the Hotel Innovation Award. While last year revolved around “Human Resources”, this year was all about “Sustainability”. Hotels or hotel groups were able to submit their innovative ESG concept and together with our jury we were able to look at over 18 submissions.

Out of all applicants, an independent jury nominated up to twelve hotels and shortlisted three finalists, which were presented at the 196+ forum Vienna. The award ceremony and the announcement of the winner took place at the Festive Dinner at the Weltmuseum Wien.
