Why you should come?

Portfolio is holding its economic summit for the tenth time, an event where economic decision-makers, top executives, EU experts, economy policy experts, and domestic and foreign market analysts can meet and discuss the Hungarian and global situation and outlook. At the Budapest Economic Forum, everything that really concerns representatives of the business and finance sectors will be discussed.

The Budapest Economic Forum will be complemented by a special event this year as we will announced the winner of the CFO of the Year 2020 prize, the award for the best corporate financial officer of the year. The award is traditionally given out at our Business and Finance Summit, which has been cancelled this year due to the pandemic, but we have dedicated two separate afternoon sections to discuss the challenges of credit management in 2020 and the current issues in the CFO trade at the BEF. The conference will be concluded by a panel for CFOs from big corporations and then finally the award ceremony.
