Gold for the PALFINGER World Conference at the Austrian Event Award

On Wednesday at the Design Center Linz, a high-calibre jury presented PALFINGER with the Austrian Event Award in the premium category “Business to Business Events” for its “PALFINGER World Conference”.

A key reason for PALFINGER’s first place at the Austrian Event Award for its “PALFINGER World Conference” was the months and months of precision planning and organisation of the event. Out of a total of 400 submissions, PALFINGER’s event concept won out against strong competition including IP Österreich (silver) and Nespresso (bronze). The award not only honours everyone who contributed to ensuring that this year’s “World Conference” was such a great success, but also acts as motivation for us to maintain this high quality in the coming years, too.
