Why you should come?

The coronavirus crisis has brought an economic and financial change of rhythm globally and also to most Hungarian businesses, and there is probably no market player left unaffected. Some industries were clear winners of the pandemic while others suffered from it, but one thing is common: top finance officials have overseen and sometimes steered changes from the front line all along. The diverse experiences of various industries and businesses could provide valuable lessons on reducing vulnerability and planning future growth.

Aside form the networking opportunity, our conference will offer quality talks, case studies and panel discussions to provide an overview of the most important operational and financial issues of Hungarian companies. This unique event is expressly for businesses, where the leaders of companies big and small may discuss and exchange their experiences. This year, there will be extra emphasis on the financial and digital challenges and opportunities of post-crisis recovery, but the current issues of credit management will also be on the agenda in line with our traditions.


Nominate yourself and become the CFO of the Year!

We will soon find out who the top financial manager of the year will be in Hungary. At the Business and Finance conference on 8 September, we will present the CFO of the Year award, a joint accolade of Portfolio and Credit Management Group. As in earlier years, the jury will reward the CFO found to be the best prepared and most successful this year. Other top picks will receive the CFO Master 2021 award.

Nominations for the award are open to the finance managers of all Hungarian businesses (except those active in finance or consulting). Please send inquiries to cfooftheyear@portfolio.hu. We will send out the nomination sheet upon request, which should be returned to the same address by 27 August 2021. All nominees may visit the event with a 20% discount, while the top eight picks will receive free entry to the conference on 8 September. 


In 2021, we are offering all visitors to our conferences, new or old, a more flexible ticket purchase system than ever before. Depending on the pandemic situation and the related legal regulation in effect, we are offering online, offline and hybrid events to our customers. Are you unsure how the current situation will develop, or if you are free the day of a given Portfolio event? We will adapt to you.
You may change the type of your purchased ticket, i.e. the mode of your participation, on one occasion at least 10 days before the event. To do so, please let us know at rendezveny@portfolio.hu.
Changing from online to offline ticket:
On-site tickets cost more, so you will need to pay extra to make this change.
Changing from offline to online ticket:
Virtual tickets are cheaper, so we will refund you the difference after the event.

Secure your spot now and make the decision later! We will adapt to you.
