Market report Hungary

After long years of recovering from the global recession, the Hungarian but especially the Budapest hotel market is yet again in its full speed of growth.

HOTCO was a great success, bringing together the hotel investment and development community from across the CEE region. The program format offered many high-level discussions on the major trends relevant to our industry. The best measure of success for us was the deals we have generated out of the conference.

CEE has an incredible history, which makes it a complex region culturally and from a business logics points of view. Such diversity poses challenges, hence equally tremendous opportunities for the hotel industry. HOTCO will no doubt be the event to attend in 2017 if CEE is in your strategic focus.
