Hungexpo Ltd. is the leading company in organization of exhibitions and conferences in Hungary and the region, which will be completely renewed in the coming years.
Founded in 1967 and in operation since October 1990, Hungexpo has been professionally dedicated to organizing trade fairs and exhibitions both in Hungary and abroad. With its extensive network of international relations and representatives, it is now the leading organizer of exhibitions and conferences in Central and Eastern Europe. The other important pillar of the company's operations is the commercial sale of its permanent exhibition space, the Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center.
As a result of the revitalization program launched in 2019 and ending in 2021, the Hungarian capital will be enriched with a 21st century conference and exhibition hall that will further strengthen Hungexpo's market leadership both in Hungary and in the region.
The privatization of Hungexpo in 2005 opened a new chapter in the life of the company. The new French owner, the GL Events group, has not only committed to developing the area, but has opened the door to major international conferences and exhibitions, such as the Congress of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the assembly annual general. of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) or the Sirha, one of the most important gastronomic events in the world. Additionally, in 2016, Budapest and Hungexpo hosted the European final of the international chef competition, the Bocuse d'Or, and the line-up will continue for years to come.
In 1999, Hungexpo Ltd. won the most prestigious Hungarian award in the service category, the National Quality Award. Gábor Ganczer, CEO, received the Budapest Prize in 2019 in recognition of his innovative leadership in the commercial and tourist life of the capital.
The renovated Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center HUNGEXPO offers a European-class environment for exhibitors, conference organizers and visitors.
