At the Hungarian Heritage Expo we will…

  • Celebrate Hungarian heritage in new ways!

Let’s learn together!

People all around the world are cooking heritage foods, studying the language, planning trips to Hungary (or former territories of Hungary) to see their ancestral villages, and learning all they can about Hungarian heritage. Our sessions are designed to help you learn more about those things that interest you most and introduce you to some things you might not be aware of!

Meet Your Host

Hi, I’m Liz (Szabó) Vos!

All of my great grandparents emigrated from Hungary 100 years ago or more. Between 1880-1924 my ancestors came to the United States and spent time building their lives in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

From generation to generation the love for our Hungarian heritage was passed on in a variety of ways and it continues to be. I think my great grandparents would be tickled to know that even their young great, great, great grandchildren know a little Hungarian. Sharing our heritage is something that is best done in community! So let’s work together! And, after all these years, the information needs to be shared in English!

Grab your ticket and join me and 20+ other speakers for a one-of-a-kind event that will help you take a deep dive into your Hungarian heritage.

I can’t wait to see you there!

Have Questions? We Have Answers

If you’re curious about Hungarian things, this event is for you! We’ll be specifically talking to those with Hungarian heritage (no matter the percentage) and focusing on learning more to be able to pass it on to the next generation, but anyone else who wants to learn more about Hungarian heritage and culture is welcome to join us. All sessions are in English.

The main portion of the expo runs from July 17-20. You’ll also be able to join our private community as soon as you register, so you can join in on the fun right away! 

While most of the presentations for the Expo are pre-recorded, there are a few live elements, and the pre-recorded presentations are only available for 24 hours with your free ticket. So we encourage you to attend live if you can! We would love for you to set aside some time during the expo week to attend the live sessions, watch the pre-recorded presentations, and participate with others who are learning more about their heritage.

However, if you’re not able to attend any sessions live and you have limited availability during the Expo week, go ahead and grab your free ticket and watch what you can. You’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to the Hungarian Heritage Resource Tool Kit which will give you 6 months of access to the videos as well as a host of amazing resources from our speakers.

Your free ticket includes 24 hour access to each of the presentations. If you need more time, you can always upgrade your ticket to the Hungarian Heritage Resource Tool Kit after registering, which will give you six months of access to the presentations along with premium bonuses from our speakers and more!  

To avoid tech glitches, give you the best possible experience, and keep things easy for the speakers, almost all of the presentations are pre-recorded and will be released at a scheduled time during the Expo. However, most of the speakers will be hanging out in our private Expo Chat area in The Hungarian Living Community. You can create a free account and connect with them there to ask your questions! 

No. When you register, you’ll be added to the Hungarian Expo email list so we can send you updates for the event and links to each day’s presentations. After the Expo is over, you’ll continue to hear from us, but you can unsubscribe at any time. 

Many of the speakers have resources available that you can access by providing an email address, but the speakers will not get your email address unless you choose to give it to them specifically. That way, you only hear from the people you really love and don’t have to worry about getting added to multiple email lists that you’re not interested in.

You can learn more in our Privacy Policy.

While our presentations have the closed captioning option we have several speakers who have accents which sometimes makes it a challenge. 

Yes. All presentations and live classes will be held in English.

If you still have questions, we encourage you to go ahead and sign up. Your questions will likely be answered during the event or in our special Expo Chat area in The Hungarian Living Community, which you’ll be able to join right away after grabbing your free ticket. 

However, if you need to ask us a question before registering, feel free to contact us.
