Welcome to our May Newsletter!
May has brought more positive changes in the coronavirus restrictions in Slovakia. After many months it was so great to be able to go and sit inside a restaurant!
The hospitality and tourism sector was hit the hardest and many of our members were affected by it. That's why we are planning an event around hospitality and tourism; "Reigniting the Slovak economy through Hospitality and Tourism" and how this sector can recover from the pandemic.
We all know that it will take more than this summer to repair the damage caused by the pandemic but it is encouraging to see how much the domestic gastronomy and tourism industry is ready and waiting for the return of travel (I think we as customers are more than ready to go as well).
With this event we want to bring the public and private sector together to discuss plans and strategies that can help with the recovery and also to highlight the importance of this sector to the economy and wellbeing of the nation. We are inviting a UK speaker to hear from their experience and get insight and inspiration for the Slovak market.
Ahead of G7 Summit (the Group of 7 countries), the Business 7 (B7) summit took place this month highlighting the significant role businesses are playing in reigniting the economy. Economies across the world are facing challenges but what is certain is that businesses have a key role in finding solutions and that tackling climate change is everyone's business. Now that the focus is on recovery and resilience plans, our Chamber is bringing many events creating a lot of opportunities for our members and partners.
We are also planning our AGM on 15 June, and this time, hopefully, we can meet in person. Watch out for more information on that!
A day after our AGM, the BCC Global Annual Conference
will take place and it is an other event not to miss! It will be held over two days virtually and both days will feature an impressive roster of senior political figures (Alok Sharma
, President for COP26
amongst many others), Leader to Leader ‘In Conversation’ sessions, panels, interactive workshops and essential keynotes, exploring how we can restore confidence and build a more resilient sustainable future that supports businesses to recover, grow, invest and thrive. Book your free guest pass now!
With summer on the horizon everybody is looking at making plans for their holidays. Thanks to the continued success of the vaccine rollout, we all hope for more easing of restrictions both here in Slovakia and the UK.
