Your business partners will be pleasantly surprised by the idea of organizing a seminar or corporate event in the Latvian resort town of Jurmala, which won a European Destination of Excellence award from the European Commission in 2010. Jurmala is the largest seaside resort in the Baltic states, located just 25 km from the Latvian capital of Riga and only a 15-minute drive from Riga International Airport. Therefore Jurmala is a convenient place to organize a seminar or conference. The resort town has become a popular location for international conferences and meetings.
There are lots of opportunities to organize both conferences for up to 600 persons and small workshops or seminars. In Jurmala you will find a wide range of venues to organize your event, from nice wooden architectural monuments, quaint summer cottages, and the Jurmala City Museum to ideally located, modern five-star hotels with high standards. More and more international scale events have been taking place in Jurmala in recent years, including the Baltic Environmental Forum, the Baltic Forum, the conference of the World Presidents’ Organization, the Golden Hammer International Advertising Festival, the final reception of the World Tourism Organization Conference, the International Diplomatic Bowling Tournament, the Latvian Resort Conference, and the International Physiotherapists Congress. Try out an untraditional approach while organizing you seminar or conference, and choose Jurmala’s white sandy beaches or Nature Park as a venue.
Jurmala has a wide range of possibilities to combine productive work in a pleasant atmosphere with leisure activities. Visitors can try the positive effects of unique innovations in the wellness and recreation industries, offered by the Jurmala’s spa centers, tennis courts, yacht clubs, Dzintari Concert Hall, Livu Aqua Park (the biggest in Northern Europe), and, on the border of Jurmala, one of the biggest golf clubs in Latvia, Saliena Golf. The fresh sea air and pine trees will stimulate brainwork, but in the evening you can regain your strength in a mineral water pool, a walk on the beach, or a relaxing bicycle ride. You can also choose to go amber hunting on the beach, relax in a Russian bath, or taste Latvian smoked fish and beer at the Jurmala Open-Air Museum.
Jurmala is well-known for its natural treasures - the mild climate, sea, healthy air, curative mud, and mineral waters. The main attraction of the resort town lies in its almost 33-km-long white sandy beaches and large pine forests, combined with modern relaxation and resort facilities. In every season there are plenty of events for everyone – art exhibitions, local and international events, and concerts. Jurmala could easily become your favorite place for corporate events and incentives. The town has a wide range of possibilities to combine productive work in a pleasant atmosphere with team - building activities at any time of year.
