Why you should come?

The Sofitel Hotel in Budapest will host one of the biggest annual conferences of the financial and operative executives of Hungarian companies on September 12 under a favourable economic climate, albeit overshadowed by Brexit, geopolitical tensions and a slowing global economy. This year, Portfolio and Credit Management Group will hold their third joint Business and Finance Summit event, where the internationally recognised CFO of the Year award will also be presented.

In addition to networking opportunities, we offer high-quality speeches, presentations, case studies and roundtable discussions focusing on the key operative and financial issues of domestic businesses. It is a unique event aimed specifically at businesses where executives from companies in similar positions can discuss their experiences. This year, we will give extra attention to the effect of Brexit on Hungarian economy and on one of the flagships of domestic economy, the car industry, while we will also lay great emphasis on the current issues of credit management in line with our traditions.
