Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel, Hviezdoslavovo námestie 185/3, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
Sitting on the border of Western Europe and the CEE, Slovakia’s has carved out a position for itself as an automobile giant. At the same time, Bratislava’s reputation as a SSC hub and a center for hi-tech innovation is also growing. But while Slovakia’s current prospects are strong and it continues to attract new investors, dynamic growth is not automatically assured for the future. The same holds true for Bratislava. It’s developed with incredible speed, but is now running into barriers to continued growth, in part because until now, it hasn’t been necessary to plan systematically for the future.
CEDES17, will focus more on the Greater Bratislava region, will be held in the first week of September and will feature a broad cross-section of influential city and state officials, as well as key figures from the private sector such as corporate end users, property developers and investors but also key city and state-sector officials. The conference will focus on the current barriers to healthy growth of the capital and how best to overcome them. Special focus will be paid on on setting priorities for transport infrastructure, the dilemma of parking and the need to create the sort of Smart City that modern corporations now demand.
