‘World-class’ fair grounds, conference centre completed in Budapest
The 55 billion forint (EUR 155m) project was completed within two years as planned, the state-owned project manager said in a statement.
The complex includes a 25,000sqm conference centre, including an auditorium for over 2,000 people, as well as a 2,500sqm exhibition hall and a 2,300sqm roof terrace.
As part of the project, 12,000sqm of parkland has been renewed and a new 1,000sqm park added.
The company expects to organise 200 conferences, with 500,000 participants and 2 million visitors a year.
The new facilities have already hosted events linked to the recent International Eucharistic Congress and also will be home to the upcoming Planet Budapest sustainability expo and world conference.
