13th AETAP Conference | Budapest, HungaryConference & Expert Day 20. - 23. April 2020

After a very successful conference in Rotterdam we are heading to Budapest.

Budapest — beautiful city at the Danube. Buda, with its romantic atmosphere on one side, and Pest, a dynamic cultural center on the other. One would have to be sharp to find another city in the world with such beautiful natural settings, rich architectural and historical heritage, offering an unparalleled combination of culture, fine cuisine and thermal baths. The Buda side with its historical thermal baths and the Royal Palace, the Matthias Church and the zigzagging alleys encompassing the Castle District emanates a sense of tranquillity. On the other hand, thanks to its rich museums, the Parliament, the Great Market Hall, St. Stephen’s Basilica (surrounded by pedestrian streets) and the inspiring atmosphere of the ‘Jewish quarter’, Pest offers a bustling, vibrant scene.
