VIENNA, July 25, 2013 /CNW/ - "In the first half of 2013, Vienna once again delivered proof of its attractiveness as a tourist destination, with a 3.1% increase to 5.7 million overnight stays," says Norbert Kettner, Director of the Vienna Tourist Board, commenting on the latest record. Among Vienna's top 10 markets, Germany leads with 1,146,000 overnight stays (up 3% against last year's period), followed by Austria (1,116,000, +2%), Russia (363,000, +14%), the USA (276,000, +/- 0%), and Italy (245,000, -10%). Following them in 6th to 10th place are the UK (203,000, +8%), Switzerland (183,000, +2%), France (165,000, +/-0%), Japan (136,000, +4%) and Spain (133,000, -1%). Vienna also showed heavy growth in 2012 in visitors from South Korea (53,000 overnight stays, +29%), Brazil (51,000, +13%), and the Arab countries in Asia (38,000, +15%). International overnights represent an 80.3% share of Vienna's total count. The average occupancy of Vienna's beds was 50.3% at the half year (1-6/2012: 52.6%), available beds having increased by 5,530 from June 2012 to June 2013. Overall, the city currently has a lodging capacity of 58,500 beds. Vienna also continues to lead the world as a convention capital: In 2012 - when the city played host to 195 international meetings - the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) affirmed its status as number one convention city for the eighth time in a row.
