VILA VITA Pannonia | 20.11.2009

VILA VITA Pannonia awarded with 'Austrian State Prize for Tourism 2009'

On 19th November 2009, Christine Marek, State Secretary of the Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth, awarded the 'Austrian State Prize for Tourism'. Bert Jandl, General Manager of VILA VITA Pannonia proudly received the award for the project 'Ecotourism Center for Renewable Energy' and commented: 'This Innovation Award represents acknowledgement and appreciation for a very visionary project that is sure to find followers among fellow hotel companies. Protection of the environment, responsible use of our resources and long-term investment in this sector are ever more important parts of our business in our quest to preserve nature for generations to come.'

In the 'Ecotourism Center' (total investment of EUR 3.2 Mio) you are invited to gather information about topics such as photovoltaic or solar panels and other alternative ways of energy generation, visit the biomass heating system and power plant and enjoy the splendid views at the end of the guided tour. The multimedia exhibition showcases key features of the region and the adjoining 'Energy Adventure Park' provides educative play around the topic of 'renewable energy' for adults and children alike.

The project was already honored with multiple awards. In October 2009, it was presented with the 'Innovations Prize for Tourism' of the Burgenland and received the 'Energy Globe Award' in the category 'Air' in 2008. Furthermore, VILA VITA Pannonia was the first large scale company in the Burgenland awarded with the prestigious 'Austrian Eco Label', a quality certificate based on a number of very strict guidelines.
