Why you should come?

Portfolio is organising its economic summit for the 11th time, an event where economic decision-makers, executives, EU experts, economic policy makers, and local and international market analysts meet and exchange views on the situation and outlook of Hungary and the world. At the Budapest Economic Forum, everything that really concerns economy and finance professionals will be discussed.


In 2021, we are offering all visitors to our conferences, new or old, a more flexible ticket purchase system than ever before. Depending on the pandemic situation and the related legal regulation in effect, we are offering online, offline and hybrid events to our customers. Are you unsure how the current situation will develop, or if you are free the day of a given Portfolio event? We will adapt to you.
You may change the type of your purchased ticket, i.e. the mode of your participation, on one occasion at least 10 days before the event. To do so, please let us know at rendezveny@portfolio.hu.
Changing from online to offline ticket:
On-site tickets cost more, so you will need to pay extra to make this change.
Changing from offline to online ticket:
Virtual tickets are cheaper, so we will refund you the difference after the event.

Secure your spot now and make the decision later! We will adapt to you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We care about our guests and care about safety!

Of course, we must keep in mind that we are living in the shadow of the coronavirus and will continue to do so probably for the next year or two.

We will take care of

  • contactless, safe entry;
  • suitable seating;
  • online presentations by foreign speakers;
  • a potential cap on the number of visitors;
  • and other event management and safety solutions.

In addition, on-site services such as safe catering will be provided by the ultra-premium event locations we have been working with for years. Being part of recognised five-star franchises, these locations take extra care to ensure the safety of their guests as well as ours.
