To quote the HeadQuarters journalist, Riga is "a real meeting gem, full of history but modern, full of Art Nouveau but contemporary, full of lavish venues but definitely affordable".

The destination's service track record of excellent hosting is praised by mentioning all the meetings of the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union that were held in Riga throughout 2015 with great success. Also the compact size of the city is highlighted by an example of getting from the airport to the city centre hotel in 10 minutes and the fact that for the rest of the stay just about everything is in walking distance.

Riga is definitely fully capable of hosting large conventions and delegations. Over the next two years over 4000 hotel rooms will be added to an already respectable accommodation figure – as of now 7900 rooms are available throughout the city.
