20 Years Of The Slovenian Business Club

Pillar Of Support And The Pride Of Its Members

The Slovenian Business Club was created with the goal of easing the navigating of the Serbian market for Slovenian businesspeople, exchanging experiences and helping them overcome the difficulties they face. Today, with 20 years of operations under its belt, the SBC represents a significant and influential factor in both Serbian and Slovenian business circles

When it entered the business world back in 2003, there was practically no one – not even among the founders themselves – who believed that the Slovenian Business Club would become an organisation that lays foundations of future success on the Serbian market for Slovenian businesses. The SBC was created with the goal of easing the navigating of the Serbian market for Slovenian businesspeople, exchanging experiences and helping them overcome the difficulties they face.

2004 JANUARY SBC members were guests at the Royal Palace. Hosts: Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine

2014 MAY Business Forum Serbia-Slovenia on the occasion of the visit of Mr.

2014 OCTOBER Speed business meeting- SBC, Amcham and AHK

Those initial reasons to establish the association continue to be relevant today, with some variations. The inclusion of Serbian companies in the membership gradually began gaining importance, and those were the first companies to establish cooperation with representatives of the Slovenian economy in Serbia, followed by companies seeking to be representatives of the Serbian economy in Slovenia. The membership’s multiplicity also constantly creates multiple challenges.

2016 October Working meeting with MInister Vujović

The SBC has grown over the years, developing its offer and activities, expanding continuously and adapting itself to meet the desires and demands of its members. Today, after twenty years of operations, it represents a significant and influential factor in business circles in both Serbia and Slovenia.

The SBC’s activities are wide-ranging and develop in two basic directions. One direction is reflected in the organising of events at which members gather, network, deepen their mutual acquaintances, exchange experiences and information, educate themselves and create opportunities for future business cooperation. In this sense, the club organises meetings with a multitude of contents, seminars and roundtables that include the participation of eminent representatives – not only from Serbia and Slovenia, but also from further afield – while it also cooperates successfully with other business associations operating in Serbia.

2018 October Martinovanje

The second basic direction of development encompasses activities aimed at establishing “one-on-one” contacts, i.e., the Club’s work with individual companies on finding solutions to specific problems confronting individual members that the SBC can contribute to overcoming, as well as providing support to companies in terms of identifying potential partners for cooperation. The SBC thereby also provides a bonus value to its members because, even in this age of advanced technologies, finding the right person with whom you can reach agreement and do a good job remains the most difficult task. Ultimately, it is the individual person who creates and realises a business deal with another person.

2019 January Business Forum SLO-SRB

Continuing in the same direction, albeit at a higher tempo and with greater energy and enthusiasm, the Club can note with pride that it is among the largest foreign business associations in Serbia in terms of membership numbers, while it is simultaneously one of the most successful Slovenian business clubs anywhere in the world. It is characterised by vision in setting goals, and by perseverance and dedication in reaching and immediately realising those goals. To its members, the SBC is a pillar of support and a source of pride.

2021 June Working meetng with MInister Momirović
2022 June Panel discussion
2022 Sept Road to recovery conference
2022 September International networking coctail
2023 April CEO networking

Friendly and interactive links between members, cooperation with state bodies in both Serbia and Slovenia, but also with chambers of commerce and business associations, sports-business-cultural meetings, education and counselling, the timely conveying of relevant information and morality in every decision made – all this serves to reaffirm and characterise the Club time and again.

2023 April Speed business meeting

The SBC expands on its business activities with additional contents that contribute to relaxing and entertaining its members and friends. The traditional Martinovanje celebration of St. Martin’s Day and New Year cocktail party are events to which the words “irreplaceable” and “unavoidable” should be added as taglines. Led by the principle that it should never be completely satisfied with the results achieved, the SBC always strives to do more and better.

2023 February working breakfast

The Slovenian Business Club’s mission is to create success stories. It is always ready to assist companies in creating additional investment opportunities on the markets of Serbia and Slovenia. With its impeccable reputation and high-quality work, the SBC has established high standards for itself and sends a clear message that it is a trustworthy and dependable organisation.
