Sponsored Content: Riga - a new destination offering exciting possibilities!

Offering great value rates, with fast, reliable and free Wi-Fi included, Riga is well-connected via its international airport, a short transfer time from the city centre. With most venues within walking distance and a great range of contemporary restaurants, it is an attractive option for delegates and event organisers

Why choose Riga as your next event destination?

Riga, Latvia’s attractive capital city, offers a new and sophisticated meetings and events infrastructure, with recently built or renovated venues and hotels. Its competitive room rates always include free and fast Wi-Fi, breakfast and taxes.

An affordable destination that offers great value for money, prices compare favourably with other more traditionally used destinations in Central and Northern Europe. The great value rates and prices can motivate delegates to enjoy pre or post stays in the city or country following an event.

Riga is compact and easy to navigate. Event delegates don’t need to spend time or money on long transfers with all the main hotels, venues and sights within walking distance in the city centre. Alongside Riga, the resort town of Jurmala, just 24 km from Riga city centre, is another ideal destination for events.

Riga International Airport is just nine km from the city, making for a pleasantly short transfer.

A city with a layered and fascinating history, you can start your morning immersed in the medieval times of the German crusaders, continue your journey through the period of Swedish kings or the czars of Imperial Russia, take a short stop at Latvia’s first independence period, experience the Soviet times with spy and KGB games before ending your programme within modern and contemporary independent Latvia.

Riga is also a safe and reliable destination. During Latvia’s Presidency of the European Union, there was no disruption at any of the 250 political and governmental meetings that took place. Nor was there a single safety or security issue at any of the more than 600 other conferences, congresses and meetings throughout the entire year.

Riga offers a great choice of restaurants and catering. Increased interest in modern Latvian gastronomy, where local chefs are developing ways to use local produce with a modern twist, means eating in Latvia is a real pleasure. And there are exciting and delicious options for outside catering
