On Wednesday September 13,2023 the Austrian Business Travel Association (ABTA) invited guests to its traditional end-of-summer event.

ABTA, an Austrian network dedicated to business mobility issues, acts as a link between travel managers, business travellers and the travel industry. It provides a platform for further education and regular exchange of information to make business travel safer, more efficient and more sustainable.

The event started at 5:30 p.m. with the ascent to the indoor terrace of the Vienna Donauturm, a place that impresses not only with its height but also with its dynamic history and its importance for the city of Vienna.
