Tips for foreigners There is one basic rule in the Hungarian language which doesn´t need to apply in other languages and cultures. You proceed from the most important thing to the less one. It may sound logical but this is the exact opposite from other languages. What you have to do is simply say, what you want to emphasize, at the beginning of the sentence. For example if you want to write the date you should follow this structure: year, month and finally day. You also write your surname first and your given name follows.

Barabás Villa

Agilia Budapest Conference takes place at Barabás Villa, a classicist-style mansion situated in Buda in the neiborhood of Városmajor Park. Mansion was built in 1840 by Hungarian painter Miklós Barabás (1810 – 1898) according to his own plans and ideas. Under the villa there was a large celler (suitable for wine storage) which was connected with the wine-dresser house by an underground tunnel.

Leading product designers ― and especially those in highly creative, demanding fields ― know that their success depends on broadening their knowledge and inspiration form other fields, because inspiration lies everywhere. We have arranged conference to support natural curiosity looking into past through works of art – paintings, architecture, housing, gardening and finally, music. Because product design is not only about present, and quality often reveals upon survival of the test of time.
