Sofia and Belgrade the cheapest, whilst a corporate event in Vienna or Graz is the most expensive

At the start of the summer the Kongres magazine editorial board sent inquiries to key Southeast European destinations, asking for the price of an international corporate event in September or October and using a standard questionnaire divided into two parts: conference and accommodation. The price of the conference part included hiring a conference room for 100 people and:

–        classroom set-up for 100 pax
–        LCD projector, screen, laptop, speaker’s lectern, speaker’s podium, 4 microphones, AV technician
–        2 standard coffee breaks (0,2l water, 0,2l juice, coffee/tea, pastry)
–        1 buffet lunch (prices without drinks)
–        Cocktail party for Welcome Reception (prices without drinks)
–        Farewell dinner, served, 4-course (prices without drinks).

The accommodation part included a bed and breakfast in 4 star hotel.

The prices returned were highest in Graz, Vienna and Warsaw, and least expensive in Belgrade and Sofia. The most expensive accommodation was in Vienna, with the cheapest in Sofia, Zagreb and Athens. Bringing all the data into a daily cost for an event, the least expensive cities are Sofia and Belgrade.
