Buzzing Budapest – but does it have the ‘wow’ factor?

But, does it have the ‘wow’ factor?

  • Budapest is a great value destination for conference and incentive groups.
  • A varied mix of good quality hotel products, competitive rates and a variety of eclectic dining options further enhance the appeal.
  • The draw of the city was its proximity to key customers, good accessibility and cultural appeal to the customer base.

Does Budapest still have the wow factor for meetings and incentive groups?
Budapest is a great value destination for conference and incentive groups. Home to a UNESCO World Heritage site which includes the Castle District and many more stunning highlights make the city an attractive proposition. A varied mix of good quality hotel products, competitive rates and a variety of eclectic dining options further enhance the appeal.

Can you still enjoy a high-end corporate event in a city that’s easy to reach for Business travel?
Budapest played host to a conference we organised for a popular IT/Telecoms provider recently. The draw of the city was its proximity to key customers, good accessibility and cultural appeal to the customer base. Whilst Budapest is richer in choice for smaller groups, in our experience groups over 300 presents challenges when extensive meeting space is required.

Do the venues in Budapest offer the quality needed for meetings and incentives (if so which are your best picks)?
Budapest is a reliable destination and whilst luxury products are not abundant, there are certainly hidden gems which represent exceptional value when compared against other popular European destinations. The event we conceived, with an audience of 350 delegates, was held at the stunning Corinthia Hotel – a leading property in the heart of the city. The hotel boasts flexible meeting space with a stunning ballroom, a solid bedroom product for the business traveller together with outstanding catering.

“Classic meets contemporary” to provide an impressive backdrop to wow delegates. Taking advantage of the cultural benefits the city has to offer. We are also incorporating city tours pre-programme as well as a networking dinner on the Europa Boat. Cruising the Danube, the vessel provides a flexible event space which takes guests away from the traditional conference environment right to the heart of the city.
