Prague is once again honored with hosting MCE Central & Eastern Europe. After having paid tribute to many
other Central & Eastern European destinations that offer quality MICE facilities and services, Prague was chosen
to welcome the set of nearly 100 international event planners in February 2019.
The high-quality boutique show that is organized for the 9th consecutive year is one of the various MICE forums in
Europe Congress’ portfolio. During this two-and-a-half-day forum, Europe Congress brings carefully selected
event planners from all parts of the world, to meet with regional destinations and high profiled MICE providers
from the Central & Eastern part of Europe.
These MICE providers are large hotel chains like InterContinental, Kempinski, Marriott, NH and Hilton. Yet also

Palace, Bernardin Hotels and Le Hotels Group. DMC companies such as Liberty, Mondial and MICE in the City form
another solid group of participants alike Convention Bureaus from for example Riga, Salzburg, Kitzbuhl and Bled.
Each participant will engage into 35 direct business encounters that have been match-made and pre-scheduled.

event program with luncheons, receptions, dinners and parties, where the entire audience remains together for
the full duration of the event.
The hotel hosting this wonder of an event is one of Prague’s hospitality jewels, The InterContinental Hotel
Prague. “It is a great pleasure for us to host such a high-quality forum and at the same time a unique opportunity
to increase awareness of what our destination has to offer to the meeting industry professionals. We are looking
forward to showcase our hospitality to the event organisers and we hope they’ll find an enormous benefit from
attending,” says Robert Rudge, General Manager of InterContinental Prague.
