It is why we created the Hungarian Summit, the first Hungarian American conference that aims to introduce Hungarian culture to Americans and allow Hungarians to get a taste of home despite being in the United States. This summit also aims to foster relationships between Hungarian and American communities.
The event will take place at the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS) in Daytona Beach, Florida and it will run from May 12-14, 2022.
The three-day conference will include activities such as discussions, forums, presentations and entertainment that are all aimed towards letting people experience Hungarian culture with the help of local entrepreneurs while also allowing them to promote their businesses to a bigger market.
The highlight of this conference, however, will be the cultural experience that visitors can enjoy throughout the Hungarian Summit. Each day, Hungarian culture will be showcased through different forms of entertainment featuring artists from Hungary who made their mark on the global stage.
Wine tasting and music with Bernadett Nyari
On the first day of the event, violin virtuoso Bernadett Nyari will serenade guests while enjoying the different wines of Hungary. Born in Budapest, Bernadett Nyari started playing the violin at 6 and eventually became a global phenomenon offering some of the best violin performances in over 90 countries around the world. She is also one of only a few musicians who can captivate audiences of all ages.
The world-class violinist will play the piece she performed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between the United States and Hungary. This performance will also be the official video of the Hungarian Summit.
