7th September 2017

Overview

Sitting on the border of Western Europe and the CEE, Slovakia’s has carved out a position for itself as an automobile giant. At the same time, Bratislava’s reputation as a SSC hub and a center for hi-tech innovation is also growing.  But while Slovakia’s current prospects are strong and it continues to attract new investors, dynamic growth is not automatically assured for the future. The same holds true for Bratislava. It’s developed with incredible speed, but is now running into barriers to continued growth, in part because until now, it hasn’t been necessary to plan systematically for the future.

Today, there’s keen interest from the private sector to lay the groundworks for continued success and an openness to work together with state and city officials to make this happen. These two events, the Real Estate Development Roundtable (RED-RS17) and CEDES17, will map out the current status of Slovakia’s economy and its real estate markets, but will also serve as forums in which all stakeholders can discuss how Slovakia, and how Bratislava, can plan for the future.

CEDES17, will focus more on the Greater Bratislava region, will be held in the first week of September and will feature a broad cross-section of influential city and state officials, as well as key figures from the private sector such as corporate end users, property developers and investors but also key city and state-sector officials. The conference will focus on the current barriers to healthy growth of the capital and how best to overcome them. Special focus will be paid on on setting priorities for transport infrastructure, the dilemma of parking and the need to create the sort of Smart City that modern corporations now demand.

Bratislava’s infrastructure: Time for Action

After two decades of ad hoc investment into its transport infrastructure and services, the Slovak capital’s potential for growth is now threatened. But private sector investors and developers are keen to open a constructive dialogue with the city on how to move forward.

11:00 - 11:40

Bratislava’s real (estate) potential and how to get there

The city’s prime location in Europe, proximity to Vienna and a strong economy all point to a thriving real estate market. But is Bratislava living up to that potential so far, and what strategies could be employed to overcome a size disadvantage that limits the liquidity of the city’s institutional market?
