The 15th GLOBSEC security forum was originally supposed to start in Bratislava on May 21. More than 1,000 participants from 60 countries had signed up for it, including presidents, prime ministers, top-ranking EU and NATO representatives, the head of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and even the CEO of Microsoft.
The main topic was our entrance into a new decade.
However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, its organisers decided to postpone the event to October. It will undergo several changes, too.
“It’s not easy to make a decision on changing the date, particularly in an advanced stage of preparation and with still changing information,” Róbert Vass, president of the GLOBSEC think tank that organises the conference, said in an interview with the Sme daily.
A platform for discussing challenges
Although the situation in Slovakia is better, some countries that have accepted the invitation to attend the conference are still waiting for the worst to come. This is why they decided to postpone it to October.
