Information for Participants

Evening Reception

It has become a tradition that the Mayor of Vienna hosts a reception and dinner on the first evening of the symposium. Attendance is free, but it is indispensable that you register for this event at the same time as for the technical programme. You will receive a printed invitation to the reception together with the conference documents when you check in at the registration desk in the Hofburg.

Confirmation of Registration

After you have registered online you will receive an automatically generated confirmation of our having received your data by e-mail. Should you not receive such confirmation please note this means your registration was unsuccessful since we did not receive your data. Please also note that your e-mail application does NOT constitute a confirmation of your registration and hence does not automatically entitle you to participate in the symposium. After receipt of your e-mail we will send you a confirmation of your registration in the following days or will provide other information concerning your admission status. We do hope you will understand that on account of the large number of applications for participation it may take up to two weeks, especially at the beginning of the registration period, for us to process your application.

Registration Date

The registration period for the 39th Vienna International Motor Symposium begins on Monday, December 11, 2017 and ends as soon as the symposium has been fully booked. Hence we recommend that you apply for registration at the earliest possible juncture.
