In the heart of Volusia County, Florida, is a dynamic non-profit organization founded by Piros Pazaurek, a dedicated resident and business owner. Its mission is to foster collaboration and investment between Hungary and the United States, with a dual commitment to cultural appreciation and economic growth.

The cornerstone initiative, the Hungarian Summit, launched in 2021, now in its fourth iteration, serves as a vital bridge between America and Hungary. At its core, the Hungarian Summit aims to facilitate successful business establishment in new markets, promote robust exchange programs, strengthen the Hungarian American Diaspora Community, and enhance bilateral relationships between the United States and Hungary. By strategically employing soft diplomatic tools such as culture and sport, the vision is to contribute to lasting connections, mutual understanding, and shared prosperity.

The event highlights included a social gathering and a UCF Incubation tour led by Connie Garzon. “Past, Present, and Future” featured Piros Pazaurek, Honorary Consul of Hungary in Central Florida, of Hungarian Summit and Anikó Kubatov, Economic and Trade Attaché of the Miami Vice Consulate. Piros eloquently presented the remarkable accomplishments achieved in business, higher education, culture, sport, and community over the past four years.

Attendees enjoyed a delightful array of Hungarian Wine and Food by Andrea’s Kitchen and Bodri Winery, creating an atmosphere of cultural exchange and camaraderie.

The climax of the evening arrived with an exciting announcement by UCF Incubation and USA Accelerator, featuring Gabor Tovari-Nagy from HungarianHub and Rafael Caamano from the UCF Incubation Program.

The Hungarian Summit Alumni Gathering celebrated the enduring spirit of the Hungarian-American community and recognized the long-time support from Alumni who have been an integral part of the initiative.



Looking ahead, the Hungarian Summit sets its sights on the upcoming event on May 23-24th in Daytona Beach, Florida. The goal remains clear: to build bridges between Hungary and the USA in education, business, culture, sport, and the community. Distinguished guests and two pre-event delegations from Hungary will explore Central Florida in business and higher education.
The Alumni network, including leaders of NASCAR, Team Volusia, Stetson University, UCF, DME Academy, Hungarian Businesses, and the City of Daytona Beach, remains a vital force in shaping the future together.
