Steirer Mika & Company and the leaders of the European Region welcomed fellow MGI Worldwide CPAAI members at the European Conference 2022 in Vienna, Austria, between 30 June and 2 July.

The event was held at the iconic Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof, located in the heart of Vienna's old city, and attracted 74 delegates, representing 57 firms, from 28 countries.

In addition to the conference agenda which focused on HR, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and other MGI Worldwide CPAAI topics, the event offered plenty of opportunities for informal networking. This was the first European Conference to be held post-pandemic and post-merger, so delegates were excited to be able to catch up with old friends and get the chance to meet new colleagues.

Speakers from the United Kingdom and Hungary shared new perspectives and knowledge:

  • Susanne Madsen gave a brilliant keynote on how can leadership help us motivate and retain employees.
  • Asim Arshad from Mackrell International gave a legal perspective on Crypto and Blockchain.
  • Dr Imre Kocsis shared his knowledge of blockchain technology and its most recent application worldwide.

A fantastic evening of music and dance at the Kursalon Vienna

An exclusive event in Vienna could not end without music, waltz and dance. Thanks to our hosts, Wolfgang Steirer and Walter Mika, delegates enjoyed one of the most memorable concerts in the life of MGI Europe, in the magnificent Kursalon in Vienna. Kudos to Wolfgang for his virtuoso and his orchestras.

Great feedback from our members!
