Upon arriving in Budapest, Hungary for European Meetings & Events Conference this year I was greeted with FREE Wi-Fi. Then I arrive at the Novotel Hotel and was greeted with FREE Wi-Fi, then stopped into the Congress Centre and was greeted by FREE Wi-Fi. This digital gal is excited!
Once I looked up from checking in on foursquare and updating my twitter status I was also greeted by the beauty of this great city. The buildings rise high and and the streets are bustling. The gorgeous bridge over the Danube River at night was lit up like a beautiful chandelier in the city.
Of course it's also lovely to see our European team mates again and I enjoyed the walk through of the Budapest Congress Centre. There's something about the space that has a great feeling of anticipation. As I ran into two of our speakers and they both commented on the great "vibe" of the centre. I think it will be great to see the delegate's responses to the location as well as the Meeting Design experiment lounge and ohhhh the Opening General Session. For those reading this who cannot attend, watch the twitter hashtag #EMEC12 and our Flickr stream for EMEC12.
Tomorrow I will update from the media tour hosted by Hungarian National Tourism, and then more each day from EMEC 2012. While you're here, be sure to bookmark this site: http://bit.ly/WatchEMEC12 for recorded sessions from the conference.
All by best from Budapest!
