The Queen of the Danube is a destination where visitors can spend more than 4 hours without breaking a sweat. The Hungarian capital offers several enticing incentive experiences for one or more days. Budapest always has something in store, even if you only have a few hours. At Conventa’s Try Before You Buy event in Budapest, attendees experienced four intriguing programmes in just four hours. The hands-on experience gives event organisers a taste of what to offer their attendees. Between 1 and 2 September 2023, we discovered some of the city’s most unusual event venues. The programme was organised by the Budapest Convention Bureau and UNDERGUIDE Travel and Event Experience DMC agency.

On this tour, attendees take the beautiful Millennium Underground (it was the first metro line in continental Europe and the second one in the world) to the area of Heroes Square & City Park (Városliget) to enjoy the unique breeze and atmosphere of the Belle Époque of Budapest and to be fascinated by the newly formed “Liget project”, Europe’s largest and most ambitious urban-cultural development, which envisions the complete renewal of Budapest’s iconic public park.
