The train goes from Budapest Nyugati Pályaudvar (E) to Szeged (F),
which is the final station of the train. The train stops at Budapest
Airport Terminal #1 (B, take the overpass to Ferihegy megállóhely) and
Kőbánya-Kispest (C), too, so you do not have take the merto if you do
not want. Kőbánya-Kispest also has a huge shopping center besides
being a central station, whereas Budapest Airport Terminal #1
(Ferihegy megállóhely) is just a train stop.
Going further by metro you get to Nyugati pu. (E) which also has a
huge shopping centre (West End City Centre) with a Cinema.

2.5 hours and costs about 15 euros (one way ticket).

The coach goes from Budapest Népliget (D) to Szeged, Mars tér (G). As

Terminal 2 to Kőbánya-Kispest (C) and from there take the M3 metro
line (direction Újpest Központ) to Népliget (D, 4 stops).
Busses are less frequent than trains (especially on weekends),  but in
general you will find a bus every 2 hours (~07:00 til ~20:00). The bus
takes about 2.5 - 3 hours depending on the number of stops.

Finding your way in Szeged

1) If you took the train, you arrive at Szeged vasútállomás (F, Szeged
station). From there you can take the tram #1 to Anna kút (H,
direction Szeged Plaza) and walk approximately 900m (or take the tram
4 or 3/3F in direction Tarján, 1 stop) to Novotel Hotel (I), where the
event takes place. The public transport prices are about the same as
in Budapest (1.5 euros per ticket).

2) If you took the bus, you arrive at Szeged Mars tér (G, Mars
square). From there you can take the trolleybus #9 to Ifjúsági Ház (5
stops, direction Tarján, Víztorony tér, the stop is right next to the
bus station no need to go across the street).

The Novotel Hotel is beside the Ifjúsági Ház (IH centre) by the Tisza riverside.
