• VATSIM Global Conference Vienna 2014

    VATSIM is proud to announce that Vienna, Austria has been selected as the venue for the next VATSIM Global Conference (W14). Scheduled to take place 9 - 11 May 2014, the organisers have been able to secure one of Vienna's premier locations for this conference. The main conference activities will be conducted from the comfort and luxury of the Sky Stage and The Multimedia Stage at the prestigious venue "The Stage". The Stage offers breathtaking panoramic views, modern architecture, excellent transport connections, state of the art technology equipment and much more.

    The conference includes a banquet awards-dinner on Saturday night within the relaxing atmosphere of the Luftburg restaurant. The restaurant Luftburg is situated in the green heart of Vienna's Prater, alongside its interesting and fun attractions in the historic amusement park. The Luftburg is well known for its traditional Austrian food and depending upon the weather, we may optionally dine outside in the beautiful garden area or indoors within the comfortable confines of the restaurant.

    The team behind the organising of this great event have been able to obtain special rates at several of the major hotels in the area, all offering their own level of comfort and service with excellent access to the conference venue. Members wishing to attend the VATSIM Vienna (W14) global conference will need to book their own accommodation, booking forms and web links to suggested hotels can be found on the conference web site, www.w14.me.

    The conference ticket includes lunch on Saturday, the Saturday evening banquet, and transport from the Conference venue to the restaurant. While participants will organise their own travel arrangements to/from Vienna, with a 12-month period of advance notice they may benefit from reduced pricing and options typically available through advance purchase discounts. Full information on the conference package and agenda can be found on the conference web site www.w14.me.

    VATSIM members are warmly invited to meet new and old acquaintances, to be entertained by lively conference presentations, hear the latest from the Board of Governors, preview some of the newest products from our sponsors, and enjoy much more during the weekend at "W14" ... but most importantly, to join in this unique gathering of friends from our community.

    We look forward to meeting everyone in Vienna, let's bring the hills alive with the sound of aviation simulation!
