After a two-year wait, viadonau is once again welcoming top-class experts to the Danube Business Talks on 15 May 2024. Hottest topics: the sustainable modernisation of inland navigation, how this will strengthen the role of the danube as an efficient and climate-friendly transport option and at the same time create new opportunities for shipping and business operators. The popular specialist conference, which will take place in Vienna this year, will once again entice participants with recent successes, current developments and a shared expert view into the future of the Danube region.

Motto 2024: "Setting the Course for a Green Future"

Greener, more modern and better. For viadonau, the Austrian Ministry for Climate Action, the European Strategy for the Danube Region and numerous companies on the Danube this must be the clear course for sustainable inland navigation of tomorrow. For the sixth time, the viadonau Danube Business Talks are focussing on the Danube as a road of opportunities and offer an ideal forum for experts to speak plainly about its future – for example on alternative fuels, new technologies and logistics solutions, infrastructural progress as well as further improvements already planned or the development of inland navigation as a working environment and how its attractiveness can be further increased.

Face-to-face networking 

The Danube Business Talks organised by viadonau traditionally stand for the connection of interests in direct, personal contact and are once again making their popular B2B platform "Danube Business Dating" available for this purpose. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet a unique concentration of high-ranking experts and make promising contacts with companies, authorities and politicians.
