Hospitality & Tourism

The tourism industry in Austria generates 5.5 percent of GDP and continues to contribute significantly to Austria’s economic performance.

With a market share of almost 50 percent of European winter sports holidaymakers, Austria has a strong position to defend. The number of overnight stays in summer is also rising, albeit only slightly. The hotel sector in Vienna holds a rather unusual position, as despite rising revenues from overnight stays it is coming under pressure as a result of strong growth in the number of beds. Both the luxury segment and new offers at the budget end of the market are registering growth.

The traditional influxes of visitors from neighbouring countries are decreasing in numbers, while new markets such as Russia and Asia, and in particular China, are posting above-average growth. Guests are also becoming increasingly demanding, and while more and more travellers now book online, the growing complexity of the products is increasing the need for travel agencies.

Far-sighted managers and specialists with international experience are needed to meet these market-driven challenges and to fully utilise the creativity and potential of their employees. Our experts in the hotel industry & tourism will act as your partner in finding such “managers of the future” for you.
