Liberty Incentives & Congresses
Liberty Incentives & Congresses Interview with Bettina Baga-Freudenthaler, MD of Liberty Incentives & Congresses Prague, established 20 years ago:

How do you analyze the evolution of MICE offers in Prague?
Since 1991, we have seen tremendous improvement: Prague airport is now an international hub; local and international chains range from exclusive boutique hotels to large convention hotels; new and trendy locations complete the offer of beautiful historical venues; fine dining restaurants (2 Michelin star restaurants in 2012) lead the pack of traditional breweries and classical restaurants…

If Prague has joined the European peloton for MICE, how can it differentiate against other destinations?
These benefits haven’t eliminated what made the reputation of Prague: a pleasant and safe human size European capital with architectural and cultural wonders to discover for a short stay within two hours from any major European capital city…

You and your team are not Czech. How do you explain that?
Each country is different when it comes to MICE and it is important to understand and serve these differences. We speak English and Czech of course, and our team comes from Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Russia and Switzerland…

Liberty Incentives & Congresses serves its clients with tailor made programs and professional congress services.

According to one of the members of the organizing committee, well-known Czech psychiatrist Cyril Höschl, in some areas of psychiatry and in various European countries there are different views on the nature and treatment of some diseases.
