The Hungary Tourism Report considers the current state of the tourism sector and assesses its potential over the five-year period to 2017. Although growth slowed markedly at the end of 2011, the year was favourable for foreign tourism in Hungary. Growth in tourist arrivals (non-residents staying at least one night) was the strongest for many years, up by almost 8% on 2010. The number of overnight and sameday visitors though rose by a more modest 3.5%, while domestic tourism demand was weak. BMI expects a moderate slowdown in foreign tourism growth in 2012, with growth picking up in 2013.

The report analyses hospitiality sector data on overnight stays by both foreign and domestic tourists, as well as reviewing key source markets in the accommodation sector. Aside from the traditional spa and health tourism sectors (a motivational factor for about 15% of foreign tourists), conference tourism –
which recorded a strong rebound in 2010 – is also considered. Medical tourism is another burgeoning area. The bankruptcy of Malév Hungarian Airlines in February 2012 also presents opportunities for rival carriers.
