About the event

The Export Club is an upcoming club-format event aimed at providing Slovak companies – exporters with valuable information and experience on export and opportunities for expansion into different territories. Eximbanka supports Slovak entrepreneurs in their export activities to traditional EU markets, while focusing on export markets outside the EU and new, promising territories in emerging regions or geographically more distant destinations.

The presenters will be representatives of individual actors supporting export and external relations, primarily representatives of Eximbank, representatives of public institutions, representatives of embassies, representatives of economic diplomacy as well as representatives of commercial financial institutions and foreign guests.

Partners of the export club can be organizations that benefit either by preparing the event or by providing expert input.
