Since then, a broad scope of services has evolved – ranging from a 24/7 telephone exchange and printing of any kind of printed matters to support in organising national/international conferences and specialised exhibitions. A family enterprise in its fourth generation, the Ärztezentrale today comprises the following firms and services:

History

Since 1911 – a long history in brief

Dr. Wilfried Rodler established the first private telephone network for physician members in Austria, the Ärztezentrale für Ferngesprächsübermittlung, to be taken over by his daughter Maria Rodler later on. In the 1940s, a “Doctors’ Club” was set up in Vienna’s Palais Ferstl as an information platform for doctors.

Together with the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, the Ärztezentrale arranged the first medical conferences in the post-war period, including an Austrian doctors convention at the Mozarteum in Salzburg (September 1948) and an exhibition for public health at the Vienna Stock Exchange (March 1949).

In 1945, the Medizinische Informationsdienst (“Medical Information Service”) was initiated, a medical publisher and information platform for doctors, which subsequently was expanded and renamed Medizinische Ausstellungs- und Werbegesellschaft (MAW), continuing to be a specialist in advertising and organising exhibitions for national and international medical conferences.
