The Debrecen tourism developments will be carried out under the new VisitDebrecen organization.
VisitDebrecen, the city marketing and tourism department was established in 2016 and is functioning as a subdivision of Főnix Rendezvényszervező Kft. with the aim to increase the tourism in the city.
It also manages the coffee house behind the Great Church where tourists visiting the city can find an info point and get tips from first hand.
László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen, previously suggested setting up a new company for VisitDebrecen but now, his recent suggestion of restructuring of EKF Debrecen 2023 Kft. for this purpose was accepted. EKF Debrecen 2023 Kft. was the company that was responsible for managing the European Cultural Capital 2023 tender and let it run as a new company.
The new company named as VisitDebrecen Turisztikai Nonprofit Kft. will be lead by Mr. Gábor Gődény who was running the VisitDebrecen devision previously.
Since the city promised to carry out the programs that was planned for the European Cultural Capital 2023, the VisitDebrecen Turisztikai Nonprofit Kft. will be divided into two divisions. One would implement the “European Cultural Capital 2023” programs, while the other devision will focus on improving the tourism.
Debrecen is plannig many important developments in the Great Forest area and it will be implemented under the new company, VisitDebrecen Turisztikai Nonprofit Kft.
