AHYU hosts this event and invites participants from Azerbaijan, Hungary, Ukraine, Austria, Poland and Lithuania. The participants will be accommodated at Mercure Budapest Duna Hotel (Soroksári út 12, Budapest, 1095, Hungary). The event is organized by financial support of Azerbaijani Youth Foundation and organizational support of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Hungary.
There is not enough information about touristic resources, resort zones and travel opportunities of Azerbaijan, therefore AHYU decided to organize this event. This will be a great chance to introduce our country’s touristic places, luxury resorts, natural beauties and other attractions. Budapest is the center of the Eastern Europe, therefore we are happy to organize this event in the capital of Hungary.

The foreign guests will get information about the historical parts, touristic places of Azerbaijan which includes beaches, hotels, mountain resorts and other touristic places of Azerbaijan. Besides presenting tourism of Azerbaijan to the foreigners, this event will connect the young members of Azerbaijani organizations in different countries and it will also affect positively the activities of Azerbaijani diaspora in different countries bringing them together being also a networking event.
Officials from both Azerbaijani and Hungarian side will also be invited to this event. Mr. Vilayat Guliyev, Ambassador of Azerbaijan Republic in Hungary and Mr. Márton Gyöngyösi, Member of the National Assembly of Hungary and Chairman of the Hungarian-Azerbaijani Friendship Group of the Inter-parliamentary Union will open the event in the Office of the National Assembly (Parliament) in November 21, 2014.
