Why choose AKCongress?

Founded in 2009, AKCongress is the conference business unit of Hungary’s longest operating publishing house, the Akadémiai Kiadó. Our events comprise own initiations, international series with a Budapest venue in cooperation with international scientific associations.

Founded in 1828, Akadémiai Kiadó’s majority shareholder is Wolters Kluwer Publishing House which employs more than 20,000 people across the globe. The founder and minority shareholder is the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The traditional publishing which serves the scientific exchange of information, is constantly changing with the development of technology. But for researchers the significance of meeting in person remains valuable.

Conferences give a fresh inspiration to journals and provide authors and readers with opportunities to challenge their ideas, to design new joint research projects, and for young scientists, to introduce themselves. Companies that have a close relationship with science also glad to meet their clients as exhibitors and sponsors. The journal-conference series elevates the international ranking of both parties.

Reliable, solid operations and our majority shareholder Wolters Kluwer is the guarantee for the financial accountability.
