For those who already know us: we like to combine business with pleasure! For participants arriving on Sunday evening, we will arrange a three-course dinner at the panoramic restaurant Le Sommet, located on the 11th floor of the hotel, where you’ll be able to see the Gothic spires that dominate Riga’s cityscape.

They might suggest austerity, but nothing is further from the truth. That’s why we will explore this vibrant cosmopolitan city on Monday evening! We will take a two-hour historical tour with a stop in a Black Balsam shop where we will taste this traditional Latvian herbal liqueur. Once we ticked that off our bucket list, we will move on to restaurant Forest, where they will spoil our taste buds with Latvian contemporary and classic European cuisine. Sounds like a perfect evening, right?

Where will the event take place?

The event will take place at Bellevue Park Hotel Riga in Riga, Latvia. The 4-star hotel is located next to the picturesque Victory Park, 1,7 km from Riga Old Town. They are proud of their excellent service and individual approach to all guests!

The sessions on Monday and Tuesday will take place in the spacious Hall Paris II as well as the bright Hall Riga. The training on Wednesday will only take place in the latter. Both have a daylight view and a good ventilation system to keep you alert and comfortable throughout the day!

Where can you stay?

If you need a hotel room, we have negotiated a special rate for the nights of October 20, 21 and 22. It’s up to you which room you like the most:

Note that the above-mentioned rates include breakfast and free Wi-Fi.

If you introduce the promo code 'VIPEVENT2019', you can book your room at our special rate right away:

If you prefer to arrive earlier or stay longer, the hotel can offer the same rates based upon the availability.
