Venue and Accommodation


Imperial Riding School, Vienna, Austria

Ungargasse 60, 1030 Wien, Austria

Evolving from a 19th century military equestrian school to the city's largest cinema, this historic building has always been a defining part of Vienna's cultural landscape. Now a grand 342-bedroom hotel that combines the original majestic façade with a contemporary addition. Located in the quite quirky Landstraße district, the Imperial Riding School is surrounded by architectural fascinations, but stands out for its harmonious blend of aristocratic and bohemian characteristics. Inside you'll find nods to our regal equestrian heritage, from the stable-inspired floors to the plethora of apple delights, plucked from the orchard that is our tribute to the school's founder.

Delegates are responsible for organising their own travel and accommodation.


It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting Carbon Black World regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalise their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty.

These companies do not represent Smithers and should not be given any credit card information.

Should you receive any correspondence from unauthorised organisations regarding accommodation arrangements for P&P or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
