For us, the ECOC label and the ECOC Year are a celebration, a unique and unrepeatable opportunity to express the pride we feel and to experience the many things the region has to offer. It is a year-long celebration not only of Veszprém and the Bakony-Balaton region but a celebration with Europe that may even bring distant continents closer to us.
We believe that unique and unrepeatable experiences are defining events not just for a city or a region but for all of us. Everyone will take something away; a concert to be remembered for a lifetime, dancing with abandon until dawn, a meeting, or a defining professional experience. Glimpses of the future will suck in others.
We can never be sure, but we are convinced that it will be a once-in-a-lifetime and unrepeatable experience.
