In Ireland, you’ll find the venues, facilities, technologies and accommodation options that can ensure your conference is a success. Beyond that, you’ll find a people and a place whose natural creativity can unleash yours.
As the 18th European Banking & Financial Forum (EBFF) drew to a close in Prague, the Czech Republic’s own banks went public with their own good news. Net profit of the five largest Czech banks rose by 24.3 percent to nearly Koruna 45.2bn in 2009. The announcement was something of a PR coup since banking’s great and the good (I use the term loosely) were in attendance.
All of the Czech Republic’s biggest banks posted stable results despite the impact of the economic crisis. In fact, it seems that the nation’s financial institutions have come through the global downturn almost unscathed. If the banking sector is stable and relatively healthy, then wouldn’t logic follow that investment inflows are also in rude health?
Come the end of January if you’re one of the world’s movers and shakers - or like Bono, just fancy yourself as one - there’s only one place to be… Davos. Yes, the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Switzerland is upon us once more.
Except that last year, most of the movers and shakers had cancelled.
