SIRHA Budapest’s ambition is to feature a comprehensive offering for the professionals of the food, baking and confectionery, hotel, hospitality and packaging industry and gastronomy.

Quoting: Zoltán Hamvas – president of SIRHA Budapest – president of the Hungarian Bocuse d’Or Academy – co-president of the Hungarian Hotel & Restaurant Association„For the experts of the region working in the food and catering industry, the SIRHA Budapest trade fair is an unmissable event where the professional audience meets the best and latest features of the sector. Covering gastronomy, the hotel sector, catering, food retail, the bakery and pastry industry and many other related services, SIRHA Budapest is an event which unites all branches of food industry services and gastronomy, providing an opportunity for the representatives of the various sectors to share their experiences with each other and make deals. Beyond the products on offer, the colourful range of events play a key role in this, from professional lectures and demonstrations to the competitions of chefs working in mass catering, confectioners and baristas. I must admit that I’m somewhat biased from all the events, the Bocuse d’Or competition is the dearest for me since the latest SIRHA Budapest hosted that wonderful event where the Hungarian team took first place as the best of Europe at the award ceremony, making it to the top of the podium.

A lot of LEGO pieces will await for the  adventurous visitors having 15 tables around the map in helping to build the map with the pictures of the country.

Mentioning a couple of Hungarian exhibitors worthwhile to keep in mind to plan for the next visit for a traditional holiday and share family programmes in the coming seasons: The Coronation festival coming up in August at Székesfehérvár. Fresh Fruit Beers from Szent András Brewery. Found out it was prepared for about sixteen months, but it paid the time spent, as it turned into a great success by the beer lovers and on the market.Their strongest light beer was obsessed with experimentation and the challenge was to find out what is the highest rate of ABV to reach in a light lager style using domestic technology reaching 11.7%. This became the strongest one running called Pöröly (the sledgehammer).

The city of Szolnok presented with rich with spectacular tourist attraction and the latest is shortly to be open called  “Sörárium” (Foaming gastronomic cult) to the public with a unique beer interactive museum and cultural space, which not only enriches the city’s tourism offering high standard of attractions dormant for many years Szolnok’s beer gastronomy.

At the exhibition the spectacular brewery the visitors can take part in the brewing process. Also as an integral part of the Art Museum and pub with wax figures of the contemporary gastronomic choices  can be tasted the locally made handicrafts beers.

The Kumánia Hotel … can be found between Szolnok and Debrecen in Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county, nearly 50 kilometres from Szolnok. Guests keen on cultural and outdoor programs can go for horse-riding, carriage rides, archery, ethnographic exhibitions and the Straw World.The thermal water at Kisújszállás date back to the early 1930s. The spa at its present was open in 1960 and since then is available all year round. It has become a real attraction. Beside the numerous wellness services, tennis, beach football is at the fingertips for the healing individuals. Been there for a couple of days and definitely worthwhile in having to shoot, relax some days.

Another reminder heard at the Travel Exhibition was for April  when the XVIth International „Kisüsti” Pálinka Festival and Fair will take place between April, 17-19.2015. at the City of Gyula. So again at Gyula, the Pálinka will stand as the capital of Hungarian.
