Guest of Honour

Hungarian Guest of Honour – Eger and vicinity

“I feel that we, the citizens of Eger, are proud of our roots and the values that make the city a particularly attractive destination. This includes the victory of 1552, the wonders of wine, our healing spas as well as our man-made cultural heritage and picturesque landscape. Our goal is to base the future of the continuously renewing, 21st century Eger on these superb features and well-known attractions. We are convinced that Eger and its vicinity is a jewel of the country, which one can only sample over an extended weekend: our range of values provides a whole week or even ten days’ worth of experiences for young adults, families and the elderly alike. The opportunity to be the guest of honour at the 2020 Travel exhibition is not to be missed. We are developing Eger with joint forces and we have plans that will earn the attention of the trade. Eger and vicinity is preparing a unified appearance and a range of novelties for the exhibition, counting on the attention of the trade and media that comes with serving as a guest of honour.” Mr. László HABIS, mayor of the Municipality of Eger

Foreign Guest of Honour – Italy

“As a country popular amongst Hungarian tourists, Italy is more than pleased to be the Foreign Guest of Honour at the Travel exhibition. Apart from the beauty of our landscape, coastlines and sunny climate, our characteristic Italian cuisine, superb ski resorts and mountainous hotels, the highlighted theme of the 2020 Travel exhibition, cultural and religious tourism, allows us to present even more attractions in our country. We’d like to bring our visitors’ attention to our historical cities, monuments and pilgrimage sites.” Mr. Máté TERJÉK, Ufficio Rappresentanza Enit Budapest
