November 12 - Chicago - Compass Arena

Our 3rd Business Conference is



BALKAN BUSINESS CONFERENCE is designed to establish an official network of Balkan diaspora entrepreneurs and professionals in the United States. It was founded with the belief that improved and strengthened business relations between Balkan diaspora and homeland can contribute to and enhance the livelihoods of Balkan countries and communities from which they originate, and provide assistance to families and communities in need. 

We will discuss the needs and priorities of diaspora entrepreneurs and investors regarding the establishment of such a network, as well as hear from government officials about the practical steps involved in establishing such a network. The Balkan Business Networking Conference’s core purpose is to support the business success of Balkan companies in USA, connect the Balkan Diaspora in the United States, strengthen relationships, share ideas and connect with the community, and everything we do reflects this purpose.
