Riga - the capital of Latvia is ideally located between its Baltic and Scandinavian neighbours. With over 800 years of history, Riga offers an enriching cultural heritage with vivid evening and social programme possibilities.
In terms of meeting and event venues, the city prides itself on a blend of historical meeting halls and modern conference venues. With over 60 certified hotels and a total of 13,000 beds available, Riga is fully capable of hosting large congresses, conferences and official delegations. Over the next two years more than 750 hotel rooms by Marriott, Hilton, Radisson and others will be added to an already impressive portfolio.
Whether you’re travelling in a small incentive group or large conference delegation, the cost-benefit nexus plays an important role. Riga and other emerging MICE destinations, like Jurmala and Liepaja provide very high value-for-money and good customer service. Riga is famous not only for its rich history and culture, but also – when it comes to hospitality – for its efficiency and service sector. Latvia’s well-trained employees are recognized for being delicate and discreet, as well as friendly and welcoming.
