Vorarlberger Wirtschaftsforum 2016 im Festspielhaus Bregenz

The Vorarlberg Economic Forum, the region’s most important gathering of high-calibre speakers and business people, took place for the 33rd time at Bregenz Festival House.

Under the motto “Global. Local. Digital.” internationally recognised representatives of industry, commerce and science delivered speeches on the stage of the Workshop Theatre of Bregenz Festival House on 10 November 2016.


The approx. 460 participants from Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany enjoyed not only fascinating talks but also the presentation of an award to a representative of the business world from Vorarlberg for his/her achievements. The award has been instituted by the regional daily newspaper Vorarlberger Nachrichten, the Vorarlberg Economic Chamber and the Vorarlberg Federation of Industry.


The Economic Forum closed with the traditional veal sausage feast, held in the Lake Foyer with a view over Lake Constance.
