Event Management


The Angewandte places great emphasis on the effectualness and perception of its artistic, scientific and cultural-political activities. Exhibitions, round table discussions on socially relevant topics, symposia and events enhance the University’s profile as a place where not only research and teaching take place, but also results are made available to an interested audience. These numerous events culminate in the annual „Angewandte Festival“ replacing the previous, big annual exhibition of „The Essence“.
The Event Management Unit, newly established in 2019, acts as an intermediary by planning and executing all these national and international events, and provides competent support to all required partners.
The interior design of the function rooms at the University display an impressive spectrum of variation.  Traditional and modern architecture come together in a grand symbiosis. Cutting edge technology, high levels of creativity and last but not least a team of professionals ensure that your event will be formidable.
The university gallery at Heiligenkreuzer Hof offers a suitable ambience to present exhibitions of the Angewandte.
Even in the past, the main building at Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz provided the Angewandte with excellent options to carry out adequate formats of presentation and interaction for a variety of contents and audiences.
With the auditorium reminiscent of a theater and a campus-like atrium, the new event center at Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7 closes the gap that previously existed in respect of major events. The location enables the Angewandte to further expand its transfer activities and even provide appropriate rooms for use by cooperation partners or external tenants.
The Event Management department offers support to all employees and partners of the University of Applied Arts Vienna in planning and carrying out the events that take place on the premises of the University.
