The Czech Republic – Ideal Congress and Incentive Programme Destination    
HomeTourism
« Back


 

The Czech Republic is an attractive destination for the organisation of congresses and incentive programmes because it provides world class services and, at the same time, it is one of the safest international destinations. Besides, it is a perfectly accessible country, thanks to five international airports and international railway connections.

 

Dozens of luxury hotels and conference centres meeting international quality and capacity standards can be found not only in Prague, but also in other Czech cities such as Brno, Hradec Králové, Ostrava, Plzeň, Karlovy Vary, and Teplice. The list of places suitable for conference organisation also includes venues with the cap­acity of over 5 000 people. One of the undoubted advantages of organising congresses in the Czech Republic is the ratio of the value of services to price. Even while retaining highly professional services, your event will remain at a relatively acceptable price level. Even more so if you decide to organise the meeting somewhere else than in the capital – prices in other regions are lower by tens of per cent, yet the quality of the provided services does not differ. In the Czech Republic, you can choose an incentive programme according to your imagination: you may experience gala costume events in castles and chateaus, an industrial exhibition in one of the old factories, a Celtic feast in a meadow or enjoy an evening as secret agent James Bond. All you need to do is – voice your wish.

 

New: Czech Convention Bureau

 

The Czech Tourism Agency’s goal is for the Czech Republic to host as many congresses and incentive events as possible. That is why, in January 2010, it established the Czech Convention Bureau whose aim is the unified promotion of the Czech Republic as a congress and incentive programme destination, both at home and abroad. The Czech Republic’s success in the field of congress and incentive tourism is supported by the fact that, in the year 2000, Prague hosted the IMF and World Bank Annual Meeting, in 2002 the NATO Summit, and in 2006 the Congress of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA). According to the results of a survey carried out by the International Congress and Conference Association (ICCA), 7 475 large congresses took place in the world in 2008 and Prague took 13th position with 74 congresses hosting 21 500 delegates.

During the Czech EU presidency in the first half of 2009, Prague and other towns in the regions welcomed 30 000 diplomats and officials.
