BBJ biweekly: Greek trouble and the island festival
How does the economy minister differ with analysts when it comes to assessing the fallout from the situation in Greece? How much does the Sziget Festival take in from sponsorships, beer sales, the card payment system and ticket sales? Find the answers to these and other questions in the latest biweekly edition of the Budapest Business Journal, now available at newsstands and online.
In the edition published today, you can also read about efforts to improve the state of the ailing music industry and learn about the impact of the biggest office deal of the year. And our special report on the business of music and festivals includes an exclusive industry with Károly Gerendai, the man who built the Sziget empire.
You can also see our listings of "Whatʼs On" in Budapest, learn about the blowback after the government gave out exclusive tobacco distribution rights without a tender – and much more.
Our more in-depth biweekly coverage used to appear exclusively in print – and it is available that way on newsstands today. But now you can also read the entire biweekly edition of the BBJ online, on your computer, smartphone or tablet, via bbj.hu Premium.
