This year's winners - Global Payroll Awards - Budapest


This year’s Global Payroll Association (GPA) Awards ceremony in Budapest was glitzier and more glamorous than ever. With even more entries than last year guests attended the stunning event at the Museum of Ethnography. The museum houses a collection of Hungarian folk objects from the 19th century.

Attendees came from as far afield as India, the US and South America.

Starting at 6.30pm with a champagne reception, our guests were entertained by traditional Hungarian dancers, and music.  Whilst the amazing Mentalist Danny Blue wowed the audience with his trickery and demonstrated his extraordinary mental powers.
