Jet Aviation hosts annual Vienna Roundtable – the biggest ever – at new venue

February 4, 2020

Jet Aviation’s Vienna Roundtable drew record numbers last week, with more than 30 operators and nearly 300 executives attending the annual invitation-only networking event. To start the new decade, the company introduced a new venue for the select business aviation event. The Vienna Roundtable was held this year at Vienna’s historical Palais Niederostereich.

As the industry’s only private gathering of its kind in Europe, the much anticipated Jet Aviation Vienna Roundtable attracts more guests from the Austrian business aviation community each year. Having celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, Jet Aviation decided to change venues in 2020 to give it new energy and better accommodate the growing numbers. This year’s event was held at Palais Niederostereich, the mid-19th century historical Estates House of Lower Austria located in central Vienna. Almost 300 VIP customers and industry members, including some 30 different operators, attended the exclusive networking event.

“Customers really appreciate the opportunity to renew acquaintance in a relaxed setting,” said Oliver Bergsch, Vice President Regional Sales EMEA & APAC. “The Vienna Roundtable helps people in the industry connect, share opinions and exchange information, while enjoying some food, dancing a bit and sharing a few laugh. It sounds very simple, but the power of it should not be underestimated.”

“It was an honor to reconnect with customers and learn more about how we can improve our service,” said Jet Aviation President David Paddock. “This type of event lends freedom to interact at a more personal level, which really helps build trust and understanding in our working relationships.”
