After four successful events in recent years, büro wien, in cooperation with the
futurezone editorial team and KURIER, was responsible for the implementation of the futurezone Award ceremony again. For the fifth time, the best ideas, innovations and products of the year from the technology sector were admired and distinguished.
The event was held at the Atelierhaus of the Academy of Fine Arts (formerly the Semperdepot/Imperial state-theater’s decoration storage), which, through its charm and complimentary architecture gave the event the finishing touch!
In contrast to the years before, this year, for the first time there was a futurezone Day. One could listen to talks on the latest developments in the market, engage in discussions and learn about product innovations.
The presentation of the futurezone Award 2016 took place at the end of the futurezone Day. The evening was impressive with a rather unusual stage and one of a kind video projection. Chancellor Christian Kern was welcomed as an honorary guest of the award ceremony where he opened the evening with an inspiring speech.The event was hosted by Anita Ableidinger and Meinrad Knapp from Kronenhit radio, who accompanied the winners, presenters and the audience with their customary humor throughout the evening, culminating with dinner and music by the DJ collective “Etepetete"!
