MTÜ: Guest nights could reach 30 mln
The number of guest nights in Hungary could reach 30 million this year, "in a best-case scenario," the head of the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTÜ) Zoltán Guller said.
Guller said the number could return to pre-crisis levels in 2022. The number of guest nights stood at 41.5 million in 2019 and fell to 22 million in 2020.
Guller said the agency had reshaped its strategy for the sector during the crisis, introducing a uniform accommodation rating system and laying the groundwork for data-driven management.
He announced a HUF 3 billion subsidy program for upgrades at public and private beaches.
