Success of the Slovenian Business Centre at EXPO 2015

Over 600 Slovenian companies have been taking advantage of numerous business opportunities provided by the EXPO Milano 2015 World Exhibition. The success of the Business Centre in the Slovenian Pavilion has exceeded all expectations and presages a promising future.

At EXPO Milano 2015 World Exhibition, Slovenia is represented by an innovative pavilion and the slogan, “I feel SLOVEnia, Green. Active. Healthy!.Over 620 Slovenian companies have already been featured at Expo since its opening in May. Many business events in the fields of agriculture, food processing industry, environmental policies, biotechnology, wood industry and creative industries have already been organised. The Business Centre is operating in the Slovenian Pavilion with the purpose of forming additional business connections, and also serves as an information point for Slovenian companies and assists them when organising presentation events and meetings. “The decision regarding the establishment of the Business Centre in the Slovenian Pavilion was correct and exceeded all expectations. The Business Centre is a global meeting place of Slovenian entrepreneurs and their foreign counterparts. In cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia to Italy in Rome, SPIRIT Slovenia and the SPIRIT Representative Office in Milan, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia and the Economic Office of the Republic of Slovenia in Milan, we offer assistance to Slovenian companies in their penetration into, and expansion in, foreign markets,” explains Bojan Škoda, Head of the Business Centre.

Slovenian companies are actively involved in the presentation of Slovenia in Milan. From the very outset, more than 450 companies have participated in the business connecting platform, which enables the formation of new connections and the organisation of business meetings with 60,000 companies. Slovenian companies are being featured in the Slovenian Pavilion also physically or as part of Slovenia’s promotion at EXPO Milano 2015. Businesspeople participate in delegations organised by the European Union, SPIRIT Slovenia Public Agency and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia. The latter two institutions have already organised three delegations which included fifty companies. Smaller delegations have also been organised, such as presentations of Slovenian wine-producers, olive oil producers and tourism workers.

Slovenian regions also join in the great success of Slovenia’s presentation in Milan; a new region is featured at the pavilion every two weeks. The regions excite the visitors of the World Exhibition with their diverse accompanying programmes, which enrich their visit to the Slovenian Pavilion with music performances, entertainment and display of cultural heritage.

Presentation programmes of regions and more information on Slovenia’s presentation at EXPO Milano, which is inviting visitors to its pavilion until October, can be found here.
