Location: Balaton Congress Center and Theatre opened it’s  gates in the northwest region of Balaton, in Keszthely, the capital of Balaton, on 6. June 2002. The new, multifunctional institute came alive owing to a common co-operation, as the part of the town’s community centre looking back on a programme organising past of 50 years. The aim was to reach that the town, rising above the region’s settlements with it’s constructed environment, cultural traditions and history, may provide a worthy place again for the region’s cultural, scientific, business and other programmes.

Facilities: In the congress centre’s two-storey building, the hall for 500 persons is suitable for conferences (plenary sessions), theatrical performances, as well as balls. In addition, the entirely air-conditioned institute has five (separable-transformable-variable) section halls, available for 500 persons in total, and professional sound, lighting and interpreting technological equipment. Even disabled  people can use the building unhindered. They provide a full scale of services necessary for the implementation of perfect programmes, therefore, a bar and exhibition area is certainly available.

They are looking forward to organise conferences, scientific symposia, business negotiations, product presentations, trade fairs, exhibitions, firm programmes, theatrical events, festivals, balls, receptions, cultural programmes, entertaining programmes, ballroom dance competitions, fashion shows, trainings, workshops, continuation courses, and other courses.

Keszthely and its surrounding: The location ofKeszthely is remarkably favourable, the region turistically offers a wide range of recreational opportunities. Besides Balaton, such natural endowments provide rich varieties of programmes as Small Balaton, the Keszthely Mountains, or Hévíz Lake. The town is located only about 100 km away both from the western and the eastern borders.
