Green Location Congress Centre Alpbach

Green Meetings in Alpbach

What does Green Meeting mean? Organisers consciously address sustainability issues at a Green Meeting - from environmentally friendly travel to regional catering to the avoidance of waste during the event. In concrete terms, this means, for example, sourcing food and beverages as seasonally as possible and predominantly regionally from the immediate vicinity. An extended waste management concept helps to reduce waste and avoid litter. Participants should preferably be accommodated in local accommodation facilities that meet high environmental standards. If possible, social and cultural aspects are also taken into account, e.g. by deliberately including regional artists in the social programme.

Alpbach is best of Austria by Green Meetings

In Alpbach, Green Meeting means a comprehensive overall experience: not only does the green Congress Centre meet the highest technical and ecological standards. Hotels, guest houses and catering providers are also exemplary partners in terms of ecology and organisation.

The Congress Centrum building is partly built into the hillside to save energy consumption. All the equipment meets the highest technical and ecological requirements. In the case of printed matter, the focus is initially on avoidance through digital information management and subsequently on printing in accordance with the eco-label guideline for "printed matter".

EFA - European Forum Alpbach

Alpbach owes its outstanding infrastructure to its largest and best-known event, the European Forum Alpbach, which takes place annually in August in the Tyrolean mountain village with 5,500 participants from 80 countries. The nature-oriented architecture of the house ideally complements the unique timber construction style of "Austria's most beautiful village".


"The best is just good enough" This claim accompanies every event at the Congress Centrum Alpbach. Preparation, implementation and follow-up are completed in close cooperation between the organiser and the project management.

With a total floor space of 2,796 m², the building offers two plenary halls, three light-flooded foyers for exhibitions and catering and eight flexibly combinable seminar rooms. The newest plenary hall offers room capacity for up to 850 people in concert seating.
