OUR 2019 CONFERENCE DESTINATION IS BUDAPEST
We are delighted to announce that Budapest will host the Group’s 2019 Conference, with the three-day event taking place at the luxury Intercontinental Hotel situated in the heart of the city.
The conference will be held from 21st to 24th March 2019.
Gary Lewis, CEO, The Travel Network Group, said that Budapest would “offer the Group everything and more to deliver an exceptional event and give delegates an opportunity to experience first-hand what the Hungarian capital has to offer.”
He added: “Budapest will allow us to raise the bar again in terms of delighting our Members as it offers us all we need to deliver another amazing conference. From the 5-star hotels we are using through to our plans for delegates to sample the delights of Budapest, it has all the promise of being our best-ever conference.”
Gary continued that in looking for destinations for the 2019 event, Budapest met all the Group’s conference criteria: a 2-hour flight time; a quick and easy transfer from the airport to hotel; high quality hotels and a destination that many Members may not have visited before.
He added: “Budapest offers us so much in terms of giving delegates a chance to experience what the city has to offer. We are planning to make sure that over the course of the few days we are together Members will have a chance to experience the delights of Budapest and its authenticity. It really is an amazing and vibrant city and one we think will provide the perfect backdrop for our conference.”
Conference accommodation will be at two of the city’s luxury hotels, the Intercontinental and the Sofitel. They are both located at one of the most imposing UNESCO world heritage sites of Budapest, on the stunning riverbank walkway in the city, called the Danube Promenade. Both are in close proximity of architectural gems such as the Széchenyi Chain Bridge and the Parliament building with a direct view of the Buda Castle.
“We have once again chosen to work with luxury hotels so that Members get the very best experience of their time in Budapest.
“One of the main reasons that our conferences are so successful is that they offer Members and Business Partners great value for money, and this year will be no exception. For this coming conference, the Hungarian Tourist Board has kindly offered sponsorship support that will help us ensure that the delegate rates remain cost effective,” concluded Gary.
