In 2015, the global technology and capital goods group voestalpine again will have a strong pres-ence in Spielberg with events of its own. At the voestalpine Grand Prix, which will take place May 8 to 10, employees from around 35 nations are expected at the Red Bull Ring. For the Truck Race Trophy in the middle of May, some 100 voestalpine apprentices will be invited to the VIP lounge as a thank you for their commitment and dedication to the Group. Group companies will be holding numerous sales, strategy, and communications meetings in the voestalpine wing. And of course, voestalpine will also be present at all the major sporting events held in the Red Bull Ring.
