best practice
concept & design

When it comes to online reporting, even the most creative concept is only suitable if it transports the company’s corporate identity. But what exactly are the latest trends in design? And what makes a design concept stand out? This session will provide some best practice examples from 2017 online reports.

UX design

Developing not only a good, but a great and user-friendly design concept takes time, devotion and evidence. In this workshop we will explain the difference between UX and UI and the reasons why we need them. Learn more about the approach to a new design concept for online reports.

CEO videos

Good CEO videos are hard to find in online annual reports. Partly because the CEO often has only little time for the actual shooting date. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how good preparation can result in a professional CEO video statement for the year with only 20 minutes of actual shooting time. Who wants to play the CEO?

XBRL tagging

The XBRL format uses tags to structure reporting content in order to make annual reports machine-readable. From 2020 on, all stock-listed European companies will need too include XBRL tagging in their annual reports. Learn more about these future requirements as well as the application possibilities and opportunities for online reporting.

online first

A lot of today's published online reports are not originally designed for the use on screen. The Online FirstTM approach changes that by considering media-specific format requirements from the very beginning. In this session we will outline major differences between the formats and take a closer look at best practice examples – e.g. the Shell SR.

sustainability and <IR> trends

Online sustainability and integrated reports provide a lot of room for creative ideas on how to present, connect and explain important topics and standards – e.g. business model, value creation, GRI, SDGs. Learn more about recent trends, possibilities and conceptual challenges that come with central topics from Sustainability and Integrated Reporting.

digital storytelling

Important is the key message: Stories have always been told to reach certain goals and in the digital world also to earn the users’ trust. Learn more about storytelling itself, how storytelling strategies can help you to convey your message and let us show you a few examples from the reporting world.

translation process
with xliff

The translation of report content is often done at a rather late stage in the reporting process, making the outcome prone to errors. In online reporting, XLIFF files are doing a great job reducing the coordination effort that comes with translation. Learn more about how the translation process with XLIFF works and how companies benefit from this process.

interactive infographics

Infographics can transport complex information in a much faster and more understandable way. Which information is suitable to be prepared as infographic? How does the creative process work? And when does the use of interactivity make sense? These and other related questions will be discussed in the workshop.


The reporting communication must not end with report publication. There are quite a few possibilities to increase the traceability of the recently published report. We will explain how to effectively promote an online report in order to increase user rates and will share some best-practice examples from global companies.

statistical evaluation

After a brief overview of what can be evaluated in online reports, the focus is on the analysis of statistics. Which insight can be drawn from the statistical data? How can we use the gathered information to improve the online report? Based on the Bayer annual report we will show a few best practice examples of improvements driven by statistical data.


last year’s participants.

Around twenty reporting experts from four countries met on August 25th and 26th, 2016 for the first Round Table on Digital Reporting in Vienna. The participants agreed on the fact that report information will be used even more digitally in the future. Where exactly the journey was headed was a question that all participants were keen to discuss.

A weekend in Vienna?

If you have more time on your hands, combine the Round Table with a little vacation in Vienna. Here are some ideas for your weekend getaway.


art and culture.

Vienna has more than 100 museums with numerous exhibitions – some of them even offer breakfast packages. Start your day with a “Kunst-Frühstück” at the Leopold, the Belvedere or the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Prefer modern art? Then turn to the MUMOK Vienna after a late brunch at the MQ Halle Café (until 4pm).


The first district of Vienna has a lot to offer, especially in terms of history and architecture. On the Vienna Ringstrasse you can experience some of the most important sights, such as the City Hall, the Parliament or the State Opera – all within walking distance. For even more Viennese charm, get off the beaten path and stroll through the narrow, cobbled streets.

coffee house.

Vienna is known for its coffee house tradition. If you don’t want to risk annoyed looks from the waiter, avoid ordering a regular “coffee”. There is no such thing here. Instead, choose one of the many varieties such as “Einspänner” or “Kleiner Brauner”, e.g. at the Café Hawelka, the Café Central or the Coffee Roasters Alt Wien.


Put on comfortable shoes and pack the picnic blanket: more than half of Vienna’s metropolitan area is made up of beautiful green spaces. The park surrounding the Schönbrunn palace is easy to reach and provides a great view over Vienna after a steep walk up to the Gloriette. More ideas: A boat trip on the old Danube or a hike through the Vienna Woods.
