Your safety comes first to us. Therefore, we decided to limit the audience of the Budapest Energy Summit to 100 participants. BEST will be organised in a hybrid format in a way that you can join either physically or virtually by following the live streaming. Throughout the conference, we comply with the highest standards of safety protocol and take the necessary precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our attendees.
