The conference is jointly organized by the Wholesale Market Budapest, Nagybani PIAC, and the Metropolitan Municipality Hall and Market Directorate - an organization of the retail markets operating in the capital of Hungary. István Tarlós, Mayor of Budapest notes that the event is “an excellent opportunity for Budapest” and is “delighted to have the chance to present the sites of the Hungarian capital to market professionals coming from all of the world.”

Our hosts are excited to be able to highlight the vegetable and fruit wholesale market: Nagybani PIAC, which covers some 32 ha and caters to Budapest and its conurbation; as well as to introduce the retail markets operating in the city, including the Great Market Hall - chosen by CNN Travel last year as the most beautiful and best market in Europe.

The conference programme features discussions on issues including the economic impact of markets on communities; retail market campaigns and marketing; and minimising food waste on the market. Presentations will also be made by the 2014 WUWM Market Award winners – these markets won awards for projects that showed excellence in real time market innovation. Speaker details are available on the conference website:

Technical tours will be made to the wholesale market during this event, as well as to the central market hall and some additional retail markets in the city. Social visits will be made to the Parliament building, Royal Castle and the Whale Commercial Centre. Delegates will also be treated to a night cruise on the Danube River, as well as a Budapest city tour (Saturday).
