Amazing Meetings and Events
In 2016 Budapest was ranked 16th on the list of the ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) beating Stockholm, Hong Kong and Rome. It is ranked 12th in Europe. The popularity of the city shows in the trade figures. Last year more than 1.3 million people visited Hungary for business tourism purposes and almost 3,600 events were held here.
Eighty percent of the business events organised in Hungary are held in hotels, most of which are able to welcome business tourists with professionally equipped conference rooms. Hotels like the ‘Ritz-Carlton', the ‘Hilton', the ‘Marriott' or those of the Danubius Hotels Group are available to business tourism visitors and the trendy, boutique hotels guarantee a creativity-enhancing environment.
In addition, the city has conference centres, event boats with beautiful views of the River Danube and classical villas, as well as many museums and elegant restaurants that are available to lease for various event organisation purposes.
Numerous service providers specialising in business travel in Budapest offer unique pre- and post tour and incentive programmes, such as exploration of the vibrant city centre, top-quality wine and gastronomic experiences, thermal spas and country excursions as additions.
