EIGHT DAYS A WEEK … DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR, YES I GUESS SO, BUT IT IS NOT ABOUT THE BEATLES TUNE … IT IS ABOUT THE HUGE INTERNATIONAL GATHERING EVENT OF THE HUNGARIANS WORLD CONVENTION TO BE HELD BETWEEN JULY 1-8. 2012. IN HUNGARY.

The event is to connect and offer the possibilities of co-operation for those who are seeking, ready, to promote the reputation of the Hungarian values and to „broadcast” it around the Globe.

Was present at the invitation to the Hungarians World Convention press  and media meeting  held in the late morning hours on Wednesday at the „Urania” National Theater and Cinema cafeteria (District VIII. – 21. Rákóczi Rd.), whereas the media and press representative gain information about the forthcoming events to be taking place between July, 1-8.

The Hungarians World Convention is organised within the co-operation of the “Panoráma”  World Club Network and with the support of several other groups, also those Hungarians (originated from Hungary and individuals with Hungarian roots, born in other states will highlight the events arriving from all corners of the Earth. These guests will be arriving from 42 countries, just mentioning a couple but the list is not complete: Australia, folks from several  states of America United: Florida – Arizona – New York, Peru, India, Brazil, Nigeria,  Argentina, Indonesia, Mauritania and Nigeria.

Individuals coming from abroad will be representatives of the civil sectors, sportworld, culture, science, art, public life and from the economy field.

Are you ready for your participation and event planning? Here comes a choice you might be interested in the days to come. Since some of these events are also taking place outside of Budapest, therefore the Hungarian National Railway Ltd. (MÁV) offers a 50% discount of railway tickets that leads to these programs. At the scenarios all you have to do is to get a stamp on your ticket as to show you  are participating at the event. The admission to these events are free of charge to kids under the age of 14. The adults ticket price is 1000HUF to each event.

It would be hard to give a list of all the events that will take place, anyway just an overview of what is to come: There will be around a 100 events,  entertaining at twelve locations. These are  folk dancing with instructors, exhibitions, a display of „Hungaricums” and a folk handcrafts fair and plenty of discussions of  how can Hungarians keep the light on within their culture and identity living in other parts of the world.

The majority gatherings will be held in the Capital. The majority of the events will be held  at the “Uránia” National Theater and Movie House (District VIII.  21, Rákóczi Rd.- Budapest)). The “SYMA” Entertainment Center (District XIV. 1, Dózsa György Road – Budapest), it is an indoor place, just to skip a rainy day, if any at all.
