Celebratory awards ceremony at city hall
On Thursday, the celebratory conclusion to the "Vienna's Most Popular Companies" campaign took place at the Vienna city hall: Business Councillor Renate Brauner presented awards to 69 Vienna companies in a ceremonial evening. Over 200 guests arrived at the city hall, among them numerous district officials. The three most popular companies per district were then chosen – and there was a lot of industry variety: from designers to electricians, from carpentry to butchers.
The mutual campaign by the Vienna Business Agency and Krone was started in order to give prominence to small and medium-sized businesses. Viennese citizens were asked to nominate their favourite companies in their district. Roughly 1,100 nominations for 450 different companies were received! A jury then selected ten companies per district, which underwent an online voting process. The three most popular companies for each district were then chosen through the voting process. Viennese citizens definitely made their voices heard: half a million votes were cast!
