From Tie to Tip

Business customs in 41 countries around the world

The publication presents the typical negotiating and contracting customs and dress codes in 41 counties, and provides useful information on subjects as diverse as changing money, transport, dining habits and holidays.

There are places where nodding one’s head means “no”, and others where giving a watch as a gift is the worst possible thing, but it can also be that the right thing to do is not blow one’s nose but sniff, and in certain parts of the world it is customary to enter a restaurant with bare feet, while being late is interpreted differently in different countries. And whereas in the East ‘creative business solutions’ can generate recognition, in the West we might have to count on considerable antipathy towards the idea.

The book Nyakkendőtől borravalóig (From Tie to Tip) helps guide us through these pitfalls. It was published by Turizmus Kft. in late 2012.


TOP 50 publication

The 50 most influential people in Hungarian tourism

This exclusive publication provides a comprehensive picture of those people who have had the greatest influence on Hungary’s tourism in 2016.
Tourism is one of the driving forces of Hungary, at least as far as the prevailing government interpretation is concerned. However, the situation is not as simple as this. As complex as the sector is, so it is also at least as fragile, and at least as dependent on politicians, managers of Hungarian or international enterprises, diplomats, indeed, everyday figures in the domestic service provider sector.

So far we have published three editions of ‘The 50 Most Influential People in Hungarian Tourism’; each edition has been extremely positively received both within the profession and among the general public.

We asked top experts from tourism’s professional bodies to form a jury in order to select the 50 people worthy of being included and then – on the basis of a comparison of several fixed parameters – award each person points. This is how the final ranking is established.

This publication will be of interest to anyone wanting to know who contributes to the nearly HUF 1500 billion generated in revenue from the tourism of Hungary.

Every year the publication is presented to the public at the industry’s most significant event, the Tourism Season-opening Gala and Awards Presentation Reception, to which, naturally, members of the TOP50 are also invited.
