Host committee raises Slovakia's profile

THE OPPORTUNITY for Slovakia to gain greater global visibility thanks to the Bush-Putin summit was the impulse behind the launch of the Host Committee (HC).

The HC is an initiative of Slovak business entities that aims to introduce the country to foreign journalists and country delegations, using means other than simply press conferences.

The HC members include such leading institutions and companies working in Slovakia such as the American Chamber of Commerce, Amrop Jenewein Group, Coca-Cola Beverages, Heineken, KMPG, Hewlett-Packard, US Steel Košice, Slovak Gas Industry, and the Piešťany spa.

Also included are Slovak media outlets, including The Slovak Spectator and news agencies, and several Bratislava restaurants.

In cooperation with the restaurants, HC has prepared the HC Round Trips, a series of five discussion forums that provide the opportunity to talk to representatives of significant companies operating in Slovakia.

Within the HC Company Trips series, journalists can visit US Steel Košice, Matador in Púchov, TV Markíza and Piešťany spa.

HC is also running an information service on the summit page offering up-to-date information about what is happening in Slovakia and the rest of the world.

HC's press conference starts today (February 22) at 12:30 at the Luxor Business Club on Štúrova 3, in Bratislava.
