Reed Messe Wien GmbH #

The architect’s ground-breaking vision of a “chameleon-like” conference venue that would be uniquely transformable to meet event organisers’ needs became a reality when the Reed Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center opened in 2004. The fully integrated partition walls permit an amazing variety of hall layouts. The building complex is also designed for sustainable, resource saving operation. And it goes without saying that the Reed Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center is disabled friendly and completely smoke free.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Friend and Colleague,

I am honoured to invite you personally to the 21st World Congress of Neurology, which will take place in September 2013 in Vienna and which I am sure will leave a lasting impression on us all.

The congress theme is “Neurology in the Age of Globalization”. We will discuss the major breakthroughs and developments in the field of neurology – from clinical practice to research and technology. In addition to a top-rate scientific program, there will be many opportunities for hands-on learning and networking as well as exciting social events.

As the chairman of the Austrian Society of Neurology, I am happy that the EFNS - The EuropeanFederation of Neurological Societies and the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) - are our partners in this important event.

I look forward to welcoming you to Vienna, a majestic capital, filled with beautiful architecture and cultural attractions.

The Austrian capital city can be considered an ideal location for an international medical congress of this dimension. Vienna is a city rich in culture and boasts an impressive history in the medical sciences with all the modern amenities. Vienna is located in the heart of Europe and is easy to reach by plane, train, car or boat. The city offers excellent conference infrastructure and the highly professional services required for the organization of the World Congress of Neurology. Vienna has successfully hosted large congresses in the past, with up to 30,000 delegates.

Vienna and its environments offer an exceptional range of accommodation – from luxury 5 star to moderately priced and inexpensive hotels. Vienna has always been a magnet for the “new” EU countries and its long established traditional medical contacts extend beyond Europe into all parts of the world. Hence, the congress will be held in close collaboration with our neighboring countries.

The Austrian capital is famous for its hospitality and culture. We are confident that the social events and leisure activities will contribute to the success of the congress.

We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna in 2013.

See you in Vienna – Auf Wiedersehen in Wien!

Eduard Auff
