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

In 2015, Turizmus Kft. publishes the second edition of its volume introducing the top 50 personalities in the profession. This year a jury comprising representatives of 18 professional organizations plus the editorial office of Turizmus Kft. voted on those individuals who were most influential in Hungarian tourism in 2014. The jury did not establish a ranking but the publication does show the average points received from the jury next to each name in the top 50.

Of the top 50, only 26 represent the tourism profession in the strictest sense of the term, in other words, the hotel industry, travel agencies, airlines or other enterprises. Twelve winners came from state administration and local governments, and another 12 influential figures were selected from associated professions, for instance, curators of museums, heads of cultural institutions and festivals. This year’s list includes 30 individuals who also featured among the 50 most influential personalities in the previous year.
