    The registration fee will be reimbursed, limited to 60% of the full registration fee.

Why is there Austrian VAT (20%) on registration fees?

According to articles 53 and 54 of the European VAT Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 the place of supply of services in respect of admission to a.o. scientific, educational or similar events, shall be the place where those events actually take place. Consequently, local VAT must be charged on the admission fees to such events. In this respect Austrian VAT is levied on the admission fee to our 57th Annual Meeting in Vienna, Austria.
Insofar as and to the extent that you are entitled to deduct VAT in your own country, the Austrian VAT can be reclaimed.
As from the 1st of January 2011 European taxable persons must reclaim foreign VAT electronically (via an electronic refund portal) in their own member state (EU Directive 2008/9/EC from 12 February 2008).
In summary, VAT charges are applicable to all attendees, regardless of their status as an entrepreneur, possession of a valid VAT registration number, or location within or outside the EU. Local VAT will be charged on the admission fees for the event.

How can I see who is participating?

The attendance list will be made available by the latest end of July 2023 to registered and paid MEMBER delegates. The list will be accessible in a dedicated Attendee Hub and accordingly to the visibility preference of each delegate.

Railway connection

The City Airport Train (CAT) connects the airport with the transportation hub Wien Mitte (next to Hilton Vienna Park) in just 16 minutes without a stopover and offers numerous additional services such as City Check-In with baggage check-in directly in the city. It's the fastest connection from the airport to Vienna's city center (Wien Mitte, connection U3, U4, S-Bahn) and runs daily at 30-minute intervals between the airport and the city center from 5:37 to 23:38 and vice versa.

The S-Bahn line S7 runs from the airport every 30 minutes and stops at the centrally located Wien Mitte (next to Hilton Vienna Park) and Wien Praterstern stations, with connections to the Vienna S-Bahn and U-Bahn networks. The journey from the airport to Wien Mitte takes 25 minutes, to Wien Praterstern just under half an hour. The ÖBB ticket counter is located in the arrivals hall, ticket vending machines can be found in the arrivals hall, the passages to the platforms and on the platforms. The platforms at Vienna Airport can be reached directly, barrier-free and weather-protected on a short way from the arrivals hall.

With the Railjets, you can travel quickly and comfortably twice an hour from Vienna Airport to Vienna Central Station (U1) in 15 minutes or to Vienna Meidling Station (U6) in just under half an hour.

Sustainability practices at #EPCA57

We aim to organize the 57th Annual Meeting of EPCA as green event according to the Austrian Eco-label guideline for Green Meetings & Green Events.

Climate change is not a myth and natural resources are finite. Responsible consumption and production are at the core of the UN’s SDG 12. At EPCA we want to contribute to a clean future by choosing whenever possible sustainable and green venues, suppliers and products. SDG 12 goes hand in hand with SDG 13, which is a call to take immediate action to combat climate change and its impact. As we know that the Annual Meeting has a significant impact on the environment, this is also where we can make the biggest difference. Here’s what we do to support this goal:

#EPCA57 is paperless - Avoid unnecessary use and distribution of paper collaterals

Materials and waste: Whether printed or digital, all communication has an impact. The collateral produced for an event is an important contributor to its environmental footprint. The flyers, banners and other needed communications have an impact that depends on their volumes, materials used, finish and format. Furthermore, promotional material, in various forms by company members and different publications, that were frequently distributed at EPCA's Annual Meeting had an environmental footprint in its production phase and contributed to the event’s waste. As a big portion (80%+) of this was discarded at former EPCA events our Annual Meeting is since 2022 paperless.

Offsetting our carbon footprint

EPCA plants trees in partnership with activities in the destination or by supporting WeForest to offset the carbon footprint of our activities. WeForest restores threatened forests and landscapes in tropical regions and biodiversity hotspots. Their focus is the well-being of the communities where they work.

Efforts related to the venue and F&B

Reducing food waste, water and energy consumption; we encourage all delegates to support the recycling of materials during and post-event.

Please use selective waste units in all hotels where provided and refrain from single-use packaging during your stay in Vienna. 

Stimulate the EPCA community to take action

We ask our attendees, partners and sponsors to make conscious choices when it comes to transport, travel, collaterals, food, water and electricity consumption.

A meaningful contribution to the community.
Instead of traditional giveaways, EPCA has chosen to redirect those funds toward the Austrian National Library Book Adoption Campaign. Our donation will be used exclusively for the conservation and preservation of a historical chemistry book. In doing so, EPCA is making a distinctive and lasting impact, helping safeguard the cultural heritage of Austria and the world for generations to come.

We wholeheartedly thank you for your active participation in our endeavor to foster "Collaboration for Impact"!
