Support from Linz Tourismus

Linz Tourismus focuses on giving advice. Individual support is provided for every conference, for example through:

  • Advice on choosing a date, rooms and designing a programme in Linz
  • Inviting opinion leaders, conference agencies, etc. to present possibilities for conferences
  • Providing images for advertising or programme brochures
  • Providing advertising material, such as Linz brochures and conference folders for the participants
  • Financial support for successful overnight stays. For events and supporting programmes that comply with the Blue Meeting® concept, further funding can be provided

Why do we provide this support?

Support is provided for organisers who wish to hold their event in Linz, in the low season and with Linz service providers. Whether the project has the potential to develop further and whether the event is recurrent and lasts several days (e.g. every two years) are key factors here.

Who may apply for funding?

The organisers themselves.

What do I need to submit?

You need to submit a description of your event with the expected number of overnight stays and a budget with the estimated income and expenditure, which includes the intended service providers.

What are the selection criteria?

Proof of at least 100 participants per conference, and an event lasting several days.
