In May, legions of journalists and delegates from around the world will head to Vienna for the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. To present the city of Vienna to the accredited journalists and delegates in the best possible way, the Austrian national broadcaster ORF, in cooperation with Vienna PASS, has come up with an idea to offer 2,200 journalists and delegates a free sightseeing pass to Vienna – the Vienna PASS! This sightseeing city card will offer visitors free access to over 60 top attractions, museums and monuments in Vienna. The accredited press and delegates will also have priority at entrance gates and can use the “HOP ON HOP OFF” sightseeing buses as much as they please.
In a symbolic gesture, Paul Blaguss – Managing Partner of Blaguss Corporate Group – handed over the first Vienna PASS to the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest Executive Producer, Edgar Böhm. During the symbolic handover, Mr Böhm said:
We are extremely pleased that our guests from all over Europe and Australia will receive the Vienna PASS free of charge and that they will get the chance to explore the cultural offerings of Vienna.
Paul Blaguss added:
The Vienna PASS offers the possibility to discover Vienna in the most pleasant and modern way. With the all-inclusive city card, visitors will be able to quickly and easily experience the city’s unusual diversity during their stay in Vienna. Their positive and unique impressions and experiences, journalists will hopefully carry out into the world.
