Santa´s Industry 4.0

General description

Imagine baby Santa being born during the Fourth Industrial Revolution. What would Christmas look like?

Here’s a sneak peek: Vienna is the smart capital of the North Pole, Santa’s beloved home country.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (summer, of course) and Santa’s hardworking elves are very busy wrapping the gifts up.

Ever wondered how the gifts are made? Then come and take a look inside Santa’s smart factory and see his high-tech elves building the Internet of Gifts. For the brave ones, there’s a cloud ride on a reindeer to explore the computing up in the sky.

You’re asking yourself, why is Vienna the heart of Santa’s empire? Well, the only way to find out is to apply. (Hint: It might have to do with Schnitzel, Santa loves them.)

Bring your Christmas spirit and party with Santa and the elves.

Spoiler alert: No one parties like the elves do.

You’ll quickly realize why they chose Vienna. :)
