COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

Szombathely and the surrounding towns are experiencing a positive transformation that is elevating their already attractive incentive experience. There are a ton of activities to fill up the schedules of your participants. In comparison to more notorious incentive destinations, Szombathely presents excellent value for money. It’s also relatively close to major European meetings industry markets and Vienna Airport is only an hour and a half drive away. The major downside is unrecognizability. Establishing a convention bureau would definitely help in terms of development, promotion and building a strong image on the scene of the meeting.
