In August 2019 we will create a city for four days only.


We built this city on Rock’n’Roll - and entrepreneurship

For the first JA Global Alumni Conference we are creating the most inspiring location possible. The JA Village will be built up on our three main topics innovation, communication and risk taking as well as the unifing spirit of Junior Achcievement Alumni visiting from all over the world. It will be set up in Viennas renowed University of Economics (WU) and beautiful green gardens surrounding it. All of the main locations will be in a walking distance of 10-15min.


Get to know JA Village and it’s hotspots - more locations will follow, check back!



Inspiring quotes will fill the JA Village Townhall from our top listed speakers and their keynotes and penal discussions.



The Austria Trend Hotel Messe Wien will accomodate the majority of the JA Village citizens and is only a 5min walk away from the Townhall.



Come together, meet up and network under the night sky with other citizens. Delicious drinks, food and music will create an unique athmosphere for the perfect round up of your days at the JA Village.



Risk takers from around the world will gather in Viennas traditional amusement park Prater - while our future innovators can network and brainstorm in the calming Prater gardens surrounding the JA Village.
