The main event of managers in Slovenia
When? September 31 and October 1, 2021
Where? GH Bernardin, Portorož
The Management Congress is the largest business management event in Slovenia, where we will once again address current challenges in society together with foreign and domestic experts from various fields.
The time of the pandemic and the time when Slovenia holds the EU presidency is a time of opportunity to focus our attention and activities on what will ensure a better future - sustainable development, digital transition, greater competitiveness, lifelong learning, and above all People Planet Profit Purpose Prosperity. And we will do that at the 2021 Managers Congress.
The Management Congress is a unique space that critically and in depth addresses the key challenges and opportunities that create the image of a modern business environment. It brings professional experience, reflections, and insights from abroad. In varied and dynamic discussions, it encourages reflection on the future steps of the Slovenian management and the economy as a whole. It takes the initiative for broad social debates about what kind of country we want to live in and what role we as individuals or a community are willing to take on in shaping the future of Slovenia. It creates initiatives and proposes concrete measures for the creation of a business environment that will ensure long-term progress and prosperity.
On the first day of the congress, we will look for answers to questions with exceptional foreign and domestic guests, such as: what will the world look like after the pandemic, what role will Europe play in the new world, where will Slovenia head after 30 years of independence? On the second day, we will focus on sustainable development and the future of work, the digital transformation of Slovenia, which needs acceleration, as well as productivity and competitiveness, where we are lagging behind the European average. Learn how to rise and how management can help with this at the manager’s event of the Year.
The two-day event, which traditionally takes place in Portorož, is therefore one of the most resounding and important business meetings in Slovenia. It serves the participants with a diverse selection of lectures on current professional content. It is a solemn moment when we present the most prestigious managerial award Manager of the Year and the Include.All (Vkjuči.Vse) award. With a meeting of all key managers in one place, the Management Congress is also a unique opportunity for socializing and business networking.
The Management Congress is an event that is a must for every manager who responsibly accepts the role he plays both within his organization and in the society.
