NATPE Budapest 2023 has wrapped a very successful market week, with growth on every front. The event attracted 735 registered attendees, which represents a 20% increase over the previous year, including 366 qualified buyers and 112 exhibitors. More than 400 companies and 60 countries were represented.
A major highlight of the event was the Tuesday night Boat Party, with more than 80% of attendees cruising the Danube River, taking in Budapest’s majestic sights and unwinding on a packed dance floor. This was the same Danube River cruiser that has always hosted NATPE Budapest’s traditional boat parties.
