In summer it is a riot of colourful flowers in lush meadows through which glacial rivers cut a swathe. While in winter, it is one of Europe’s prime destinations for skiers.

Propel Conference venues
The small town of Mellau, sits in the Bregenzerwald valley, at the foot of the Kanisfluh Mountain, and will co-host our conference alongside the delightful town of Feldkirch, which is close to Bodensee/Lake Constance.
The charming Hotel Bären will be the venue for the conference on July 2 and 4, giving attendees a flavour of Vorarlberg’s spectacular countryside. Then on July 3, we change the pace with a trip to the medieval town of Feldkirch, where history is complemented by modernity. Here the conference will be at the ultra-modern architectural wonder that is the Montforthaus convention centre.
There will also be some fantastic events at great venues in Mellau and Feldkirch, but we don’t want to tell you all the surprises we have up our sleeves. You’ll just have to come along to find out more and experience Vorarlberg for yourself.
