Prague. The "City of a Hundred Spires", the "City of Fairytales" and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It's known for its charm and beauty and certainly lives up to all the hype. But it is soon to be home to our largest and most influential gathering of export & project finance minds!

Not only is it a city of charm and great cultural heritage, but with the Prague Hilton Hotel right next to the business district and with excellent international transport links, it's a perfect location for this global event.

Less time travelling is more time networking!

The Hotel itself is also geared up to cater for all your needs while out of the office, including a business center with photocopying and printing service, Video conference and business phone amenities, and high-speed internet. We've also made sure that free wi-fi will be available to all guests throughout the event so you never miss a beat.
