About the venue of the conference:

The Corvinus University of Budapest is located in the very center of Budapest at the banks of the Danube river, boasting a magnificent view of the city, which is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our campus, called “Közgáz Campus” combines tradition with our Main Building (the old Customs Palace), and the smaller Salt House and progression with our brand new, super-modern building.

The opening and the closing plenary session will take place at the University’s 500-seat auditorium at the New Building. In case the number of participants exceeds this number, a more appropriate location can be utilized.

This is a central location at the heart of the historic downtown of Budapest, while participants can benefit from a wide range of hotels within 10-20 minutes’ walking distance, ranging from budget options to luxurious arrangements.

A constantly operating information point staffed by the Organizers will provide an undisturbed flow of information for the participants at the Conference Center.

The University’s management offered students a break from their studies during the Conference, which will provide a calm atmosphere and exclusive access for participants to every facility of the University.

Venue of the Gala Dinner:

The Castle Garden Bazaar was constructed from 1875 to 1883 in neo-renaissance style based on the plans of Miklós Ybl. The building complex is one of the most beautiful creations of the Hungarian romantic style; ever since its opening in 1883 it has always been regarded as an undisputed masterpiece with its beauty and balanced proportions. The Castle Garden Bazaar was renovated between 2013-2014. In the reconstructed building complex exhibition halls and a multifunctional event hall have also been formed. Thanks to the development of Castle Garden Bazaar a new cultural attraction and public area has been created.
