What helps to make this destination stunningly different for the meetings market is its array of historic venues featuring high-tech equipment designed for conferences. Or use a modern convention centre set against a backdrop of the gloriously picturesque city of Prague.
Many venues suitable for congress and incentive events can be found outside the capital in towns such as Brno, Ostrava, Olomouc, Pilsen, Karlovy Vary, Pardubice, Hradec Králové or České Budějovice.
There are ancient castles including Český Krumlov, Nelahozevs, Sychrov, Mikulov, Hluboká nad Vltavou and many others that are perfect for holding incentive events and gala occasions.
The Czech Republic became a member of the EU in 2004. The Czech Republic is part of the Schengen area in Europe, so its borders with other signatory countries are open without the need for time-consuming passport and customs controls. Everyone must carry ID at all times.
Updated information for passengers form non-EU countries is available from the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Public transport can be found in every large city in the Czech Republic and is made up of regular links on buses, trolleys and trams, and in Prague there are three linked subway lines.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Please feel free to contact the Czech Convention Bureau team to discuss opportunities.
Your imagination is the only limit
There are many activities available throughout the year. In the Czech Republic you will discover that you are limited only by your imagination when organising an incentive event. You can confidently expect your social programme to be a talking point long after the event concludes.
Join the active life of Prague and feel its beating pulse. History is a part of the culture and both Prague and the entire Czech Republic offer a very rich cultural life.
The small size of the country is actually an advantage, as all the regions are easily accessible within a short amount of time and they all offer exquisite services. Hisorical costume dinners with private classical concerts and gala events at castles and chateaux are just as possible as receptions in a modern venue.
To discuss further incentive ideas please feel free to contact the Czech Convention Bureau Team.
