Because Hungary is the neighbouring country of Croatia they have a long interconnected history, most notably during the Austro-Hungarian Empire. As the MICE industry is developing so does Conventus Adria recognize the importance in connecting with trusted business partners from the neighbouring countries like Hungary in offering high-end tailor made programs for our guests arriving from distant and close destinations that want to experience the best of each country in the shortest amount of time.
Budapest was in November 2018. home to the event MICE Business Day organized by Turizmus Ltd. and the Hungexpo Co.Ltd. that showed just how charming and diverse the Conference and Incentive offer of Hungary is, from the prestigious cultural programs to the stylish “ruin bar” events of Budapest, eventful river ship cruises, the magnificent lake Balaton, beautiful green wineyards, themed parks like the one of the largest Labyrinth parks in the world, providing possibilities for a rich and unique program that complements the Croatia offer perfectly.
It was a pleasure to meet with friends from Skål International Hungary & Budapest at the MICE Business Day 2018 – with the President & International Councillor Péter Jávorkai and his colleagues György Darázs and Atilla Hesz of Skål International Hungary & Budapest, and to have a discussion about future MICE projects in Hungary and Croatia.
Touching upon Budapest in general, it is a place of breathtaking historic architecture like the Royal palace, Hungarian State Opera House and the Parliament at the Danube river. In contrast it is also home to the vibrant nightlife and clubbing scene in the “ruin bars” district. Adding to that are other interesting places like the Palinka museum that has a modern take on the famous Hungarian spirits drink, the horse riding shows and gala events at the prestigious hippodrome estate, and an overall fantastic cuisine offer in various elegant restaurants across the city where excellent service and the Austro-hungarian heritage really shine.
The Conventus Adria team is really looking forward in the joint projects with the Budapest Underguide Experience factory team and our other Hungarian colleagues to welcome our guests wanting to enjoy truly amazing experiences that only Hungary and Croatia can offer together.
