Riga has the right location, facilities and people to stage a successful congress or meeting.
Riga Is An Affordable Choice In Northern Europe
Organisers often opt for destinations with subvention and support systems without considering the cost of participation for each delegate. In Riga, delegates can benefit from very reasonable room rates in conference season from October to May. The competitive overall costs of hosting an event in Riga plus the added perk for individuals make for a very good deal.
Delegates can arrive by direct flight from over 80 destinations. Stockholm, Berlin, Moscow and London are a quick hop away. Attendees of large scale conferences and congresses arriving from the Far and Middle East, Africa, North and South America will experience just one brief layover at major hubs like Frankfurt am Main, Paris CDG, Amsterdam, Vienna, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Istanbul.
Thank You To The Associations Which Have Already Put Their Trust In Riga
It’s standard practice for Riga room rates to include breakfast, high speed wifi and taxes. Riga is compact. Many hotels are within walking distance of key venues and attractions. Most properties are new or recently renovated such as the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel, the Park Inn by Radisson Riga Valdemara, AC Hotel Riga, Mercure Riga Centre and Tallink Riga Hotel. Properties such as the Grand Poet Hotel, Pullman Riga Old Town Hotel and Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga are located in historical buildings with contemporary amenities.
All in all, Riga offers 13500 beds. Most 4-star properties are familiar and have experience with compliance and regulations for healthcare events.
Venues Are New, Equipped To Latest Standards And Ready To Host Hybrid Events
Local government, businesses and investors highly appreciate the value of congresses and meetings held in Riga. This is reflected in the growing number of meeting rooms in the city. The latest additions to the current total of 350 are the ATTA Centre largest convention venue in the Baltics, architectural gem Hanzas Perons and the trendy Teikums coworking and events space in a brand new neighbourhood. All venues are ready to handle high tech events and host hybrid formats.
Talented Local Academics To Partner With
Riga is home to some of the region’s top universities. The University of Latvia is building a state-of-the-art campus with two faculties already open and available for hosting events. This is just a ten minute drive from the city centre and most major hotels. Riga Technical University benefits from a superb location on Ķīpsala island between the old town and the airport. The biggest exhibition complex in the Baltics is right next door. Handy!
The universities attract and employ local talent in fields from linguistics to aviation engineering. Associations will find a wide pool of academics ready to take on the role of speaker, expert or co-organiser. English and Russian are widely spoken, German and French are common too.
