RIGA: TOP 10 DESTINATION IN EUROPE FOR 2016

American Express Meeting & Events Global Meetings Forecast 2016 has for the first time nominated Riga into the top 10 most popular meetings and events cities in Europe. With London, Paris and Amsterdam making up the top three, it is a deserved achievement for Riga. 

To quote Aigars Smiltans, marketing and communications director of the local convention bureau: "Riga offers good value for money and a wide choice in terms of both venues and incentive activities. We also have a unique culture and there’s a huge amount of choice, in terms of both venues and incentive activities. We offer meeting planners something different." 

In addition to listing the most popular cities, the guide also explores trends in the industry and specifically in Europe. In 2016, meetings of all types are expected to increase, with training and internal team meetings seeing big increases as organizations continue to expand globally. According to the guide, meeting attendees and budgets will still be tightly managed to maximize effectiveness - this is definitely one of the goals that can easily be accomplished in Riga. 

Therefore, to secure space for your group amidst the increasing demand, be sure to get in touch with Via Hansa DMC office in Riga before the end of the year and book your next event or meeting for 2016 now.
