Altagra Event Management and Travel Agency
At Altagra we have been organising scientific conferences and agricultural business trips to Hungary since 1999. We take all the burden of the logistics and planning hassle of the events off of our partners’ shoulders, so they can concentrate on organizing the professional activities only and take care of all the other details they need to. We believe that every event is one of a kind, as a result, we always offer tailor-made and unique planning solutions. For this reason we’re able to maintain long-lasting partnerships with our clients, in which we take great pride.
Conference and event management
We’re able to organise events for up to several thousands of guests
One of our main profiles is event management, including especially the organisation of national and international scientific congresses. Our main scope consists of medical and agricultural conferences, where we are at our clients’ disposal for organising and catering for anything from a few tens of participants up to to several thousand. We have organised and continue to organise training courses, meetings and conferences for many national and international scientific societies.
In addition to traditional affairs, we also offer online or hybrid events on request. As a full service agency, we have a reliable and proven network of subcontractors and a complete online service palette, including the implementation of the conference website, from registration to the collection of abstracts. At every conference we organise, we pay particular attention to identifying and involving companies in the field as potential sponsors and exhibitors.
We provide full service solutions from planning to execution
The planning process starts with deciding on the type of the conference (traditional, hybrid, or fully online) together with the client. We select and book the venue, platform and/or hotels, then we prepare the conference budget.
First, in the preparatory phase, we launch the website and the registration process, start to advertise the event, and find potential exhibitors and sponsors. Based on the guidance of the Scientific Organising Committee, we collect abstracts using our online tools, and we get involved in the preparation, drafting and printing of the programme plan too.
We offer a full-scale financial service as well, including cash-flow management. We provide registration on the event venue and also technical background for the events, including the stage setup and the sound and projection system. We set up the exhibition and the poster showcase. Upon request, we organise leisure activities and shows for the participants. We place great emphasis on the quality of our catering services. After the conference, we prepare a report and the financial accounts.
We take all the burdens of organisation off of our partners’ shoulders
Our primary goal is to provide high quality services to our clients and conference guests alike.
We always take care of the organisational duties and resolve any issues that may arise with the utmost attention, so that our clients can fully concentrate on the scientific side of the conferences.
We plan the more complex organisational tasks well in advance, and we ensure to always have the energy and manpower to meet all the arising challenges during this process. We ensure to personally attend our conferences to secure smooth running and be of help if any intervention is needed.Contact
We are committed to working devoutedly on every event
From the very first moment, we strive to build a good personal relationship with our partners, which is the basis for working together.
At Altagra, we feel good knowing that we can rely on each other not only at work, but also in our personal lives – and our customers can count on us in the same fashion. It is an important value for us that we experience our work not solely as a task, but as a source of joy every day.
We believe it is important to pass on our love for our profession, which is why we have partnerships with the Budapest University of Economics and Business and the Metropolitan University, from which we regularly accept students for internships.
Agricultural professional travel organization
Another important activity of our company is professional agricultural tourism. We welcome professional groups from abroad who would like to get to know Hungarian agriculture and learn about the achievements of certain sectors and areas. In most cases, the group is also interested in establishing fruitful professional contacts.
Hungary is rich in natural resources: fertile land of plains and hills, criss-crossed by majestic rivers. The volcanic hills on the shores of Lake Balaton and the northern hills provide an excellent microclimate for viticulture and winemaking. The thermal springs found throughout the country allow the cultivation of high-quality early vegetables.
These natural characteristics, combined with favourable economic and geographical conditions, have made it possible for agriculture and the food industry to become the country’s dominant economic sector.
Our company offers professional programmes in this field to groups with an agricultural interest who wish to learn about Hungarian agriculture, its specialities and achievements.

Consultant, Angels Initiative – Hungary, IQVIA
Using Altagra’s services is like driving a luxury car: it gets you to your destination quickly and efficiently, while feeling completely safe. If I had to describe the company in three words, I would say reliability, punctuality, and precisity. I’d recommend them to anyone who doesn’t want any fuss about their events. Altagra took the burden of the logistics details off of our shoulders, so that we could concentrate on the content of the event’s programmes, and they do all this while creating the most welcoming atmosphere a client could hope for.

Hungary is a popular country for Swedish agri travellers. The mix of large modern farms and smaller with a familiar touch makes a good base for a tour. Our clients often have specific demands of farm visits and meetings which Altagra has been arranging in a very appreciated way. It is easy to recommend a group to travel top Hungary as we know that Altagra listens to our wishes and do their very best to make the program we want.
