VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - Planning a wedding is a little like training for a marathon. There's a lot of running around involved before the big day, at which point one's primary goal is to reach the finish line (both literally and metaphorically). So when one venue pulls together every top vendor in the city for two days of exhibitions, couples can trim their must-see list down to one destination: the romantic Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel.
As the second-annual Imperial Wedding Day event, the two-day trade show took place on September 14 and 15 this year and featured more than 30 exhibitors specializing in decoration, flowers, photography and, yes, white doves.
The hotel's more than 15,000 sq. ft. of event space generously accommodated the vendors and their presentations while simultaneously highlighting its own status as one of Vienna's finest wedding venues. Not only does the historic hotel boast unique spaces like its City Garden, a lush escape from the urban experience that invites receptions and outdoor civil ceremonies, but it also provides professional wedding planning services. The romance of the building and grounds, coupled with the efficiency of a dedicated staff, make this downtown Vienna hotel an ideal event venue.
The Imperial Wedding Day welcomed 400 visitors who could glean information on all wedding-related topics, even as they were entertained. Live music, dance performances and workshops on such necessities as decorating cupcakes punctuated the networking among couples and vendors. Guests could also enter an exclusive raffle with prizes valued at more than EUR 7,500. Such conviviality only underscored the property's attractiveness as a wedding venue. Its 15 banquet rooms, all festively decorated, created the sort of atmosphere in which guests simply want to linger.
Considering that the hotel is easily among the best of group hotels in Vienna, lingering is an option easily accommodated, whether for business or a special event. The property offers 369 guest rooms and suites, along with amenities like a health club, indoor swimming pool, sauna and solarium. Its four restaurants, meanwhile, afford some of the most creative and satisfying dining experiences in Vienna, while its catering services stand out as exceptional.
With so many options under one roof -- both in terms of the trade show and the hotel as a wedding venue - couples across Vienna can breathe a collective sigh of relief in knowing that the legwork is being done for them so that they can simply enjoy the wedding.
About the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel
Combining unmatchable architecture and history, the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel is located inside a neo-Classical building that served as a military riding school in the 19th century. Looking at it today, however, visitors are struck by the property's rich beauty and, more practically, its location in the heart of Austria's capital city. In addition to its comfortably appointed guest rooms and suites, the hotel boasts its own Imperial Club with upgraded rooms, extensive amenities, VIP meeting rooms and an inspiring, one-of-a-kind lounge replete with a demonstration kitchen. Of course, guests can enliven any dining experience by booking a table at the hotel's Restaurant Arsenal where Austrian and seasonal dishes impress diners from around the globe. (Its legendary smoked char, for example, is caught within the hotel's own fish basin.) Business travelers stay productive and comfortable in the hotel's 15,123 square feet of total meeting space. Equipped with modern technology and A/V support, the function rooms also incorporate natural light for an inspiring and pleasant ambience. Equally pleasant is the proximity of the hotel to all the city's top attractions. Belvedere Palace is just steps away from this exquisite and dynamic hotel, as are museums, galleries, historic sites, concert houses, shopping and more.
