The Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) Regional Business Summit
HOW CAN CEE-BORN COMPANIES EXPAND INTERNATIONALLY
Date: May 25th 2023
Location: JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, Bucharest & Online streaming
EVENT OVERVIEW: The Business Summit honours Central and Eastern Europe, its entrepreneurs and especially those who after 30 years of challenging transition, dream big and grow across Europe and the globe to become tomorrow's multinationals. With a goal of assisting those future multinationals in currency risk management, cross border transactions and cash management, iBanFirst turns currency into an opportunity and a region that is geopolitically fragile and vulnerable, into one that is becoming economically successful.
The event will be attended by entrepreneurs and managers from Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary who work in companies that have successfully expanded in the region and can now share the challenges and beauty of the process.
As a company whose mission is to help other companies expand their businesses internationally, iBanFirst will provide an overview of the main macroeconomic indicators in the region, as well as risks and challenges when paying in local currencies. In fact, international payments have never been as fast, easy and transparent as nowadays.
