Austria Columbus Welcome Management

Historical Vienna, fairy-tale Salzburg, crystal clear lakes and powdery white ski slopes await your delegates

Columbus Welcome Management is a family-owned DMC based in Vienna and operating throughout Austria since 1969. Their DMC professionals merged at the end of 2020 with the highly experienced team of congress experts at Ram Congress + Event, now trading under the Columbus Welcome Management brand.  We specialize in congresses, incentives and events held throughout Austria. Our team has experience in managing interesting national and international projects for our clients in the M.I.C.E. industry.

Our event master certification (ISO/IEC 7024) guarantees you professional service and execution of all aspects of your company event. These include venue location, accommodation, transport, excursions, catering, music, entertainment, decoration and much more. We are also a licensee of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Meetings & Green Events and therefore officially entitled to certify meetings that fulfil the requirements of sustainability and environmental sensitivity as Green Meetings or Green Events.

Vienna has unique conference and gala dinner venues in palaces and historic buildings. Austria is the perfect backdrop for inspirational incentive travel programs to Salzburg, cruising the Danube or skiing in the Alps. Another speciality is our Cruise Management Division. We seamlessly incorporate your river cruise into the rest of your Central Europe travel itinerary.

Our outdoor and team building division is at your disposal to organize sporting, culinary and fun programs for 10 to 1 000 participants. These can be stand-alone events or a value-add to your conference or meeting.

Take advantage of our experience and creativity at your next event and let us take you on a waltz through this delightful destination! We look forward to your call or email.
