Hungexpo Zrt. is the leading exhibition and conference organizing company in Hungary and the region, which, since the renewal in 2021, is now waiting for exhibitors and visitors in a 21st century environment.
Founded in 1967, Hungexpo has been dedicated and professional in organizing trade exhibitions, fairs, and conferences from the very beginning. With its extensive international network of contacts and representative network, it is the leading exhibition and conference organizer in Central and Eastern Europe. The commercial sale of the area and services of the Hungexpo Budapest Convention and Exhibition Center is another important pillar of the company's operation.
The privatization of Hungexpo in 2005 opened a new chapter in the company's life. The new owner, the French GL events company group, not only undertook the development of the area, but also opened the way for huge international conferences and exhibitions, such as the European Football Association (UEFA) congress, the annual general assembly of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) operating under the UN, or the organization of Sirha, one of the world's most important gastronomy military parades. In 2016 and 2022, Budapest and Hungexpo hosted the European finals of the international cooking competition, Bocuse d'Or.
As a result of the revitalization program that ended in 2021, the Hungexpo pavilions were renovated, and two new exhibition pavilions and a world-class congress center were also built. The capital and the country have been enriched with a modern exhibition and conference venue that satisfies all needs, which further strengthens Hungexpo's market leading role at home and in the region. In recognition of his innovative leadership role in the commercial and tourist life of the capital, CEO Gábor Ganczer was able to receive the award for Budapest in 2019.
The renovated HUNGEXPO Budapest Convention and Exhibition Center offers exhibitors, conference organizers and visitors a European-standard environment.
