On this weekend – World’s largest Smart meeting in Budapest
According to turizmusonline.hu, Smart Times international car meeting will be held between August 28 and 29. This year will be the 15th time, and the event will be organized in Budapest. It aims to forge together the Smart community and establish relationship with Smart fans from all around the world.
The program of this year’s festival was introduced as part of a busy press event on the first day of summer, and the newest models of Smart, Smart Fortwo and Smart Forfour, were also presented which could be tried in a test drive.
The press conference was held in Design Terminal, Erzsebet Square, where Smart brand leader dr. Annette Winkler, Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Hungary Kft. and Peter Farago, Director of Hungarian Tourism Zrt. were also present. Every year, a new city hosts the event since 2011. The Budapest location is also special because it is the first capital where the Smart meeting takes place.
It is quite worth visiting the event, because more than 1200 Smarts and nearly 3000 visitors are expected from more than 33 countries of the world. The festival entrance will be free and there will be a number of unique programs. At a preliminary accompanying event, the interested participating in car rides can learn the most beautiful landscapes of Hungary from August 26. Felvonulasi Square will host the main attractions on August 28-29, where concerts, dance performances, DJs and silent disco will entertain the visitors. The main attraction will be Mary Popkids on Friday evening and The Biebers on Saturday; both of them are free. The most significant experience will certainly be the Smart parade, where the cars take a two-hour-long trip jointly. The route leads from Hungaroring to the city center, touching the bank of the Danube.
Smart day is an event which has touristic importance; therefore Hungarian Tourism Zrt. helped organizing it, since Budapest is the center of the Hungarian tourism. Small cars suggest environmental awareness and tourist associate with a city with clean air – the press conference told. They want to show, besides the traditional attractions, the trendy, youthful face of Hungary for the people arriving from different countries.
The participation registration for Smart Times 15 meeting can be found at www.smarttimes15.com, but of course, not just Smart owners are welcomed for the event, since visitors can try Smart cars and can participate in workshops related to the brand.
