The most influential Slovak businesswomen who are worth paying attention to are going to meet in the Tatras under one roof. Almost 100 successful prominent ladies from the fields of banking, insurance industry and health care, female managers from industrial companies, telecommunication services, retail and other services are going to spend two days in the Tatras along with some well-known personalities. “Forbes has been supporting women in business for a long time because we want more of them to join the business sphere. They represent one of the biggest potentials that we have in Slovakia. We look forward to awarding them and talking to them again, this time in a unique location – in the High Tatras,” said Juraj Porubský, the editor in chief of the Forbes Slovakia magazine.

This will be the sixth time in a row for Elena Kohútiková, the deputy director of the VUB bank to be the female number one in the world of finances and to be awarded as the Forbes Top Woman of 2017 in Grandhotel Praha. Guests who will be presented in panel discussions in individual blocks include e.g. Maria Starovicz, Soňa Hanková, Zuzana Šimeková, Miroslava Rusnoková, Bibiana Zdutová and Ladislav Zdút, Šimon Šicko and Lucia Šicková, jewelry-maker Petra Toth, photographer Mária Švarbová and Slovak fitness professional Zora Czoborová.    

“Luckily, the tradition of holding conferences and interesting events in the Tatras has already become reality. However, what we are especially proud of is the fact that the Tatras are hosting more and more significant events of renowned names and partners. This is the result of long-term and hard work of all people in the hotel business. Our aim to bring the European standard to the hospitality segment has culminated with the renovation of the Tatra legend – Grandhotel Praha in Tatranská Lomnica. It is a big honour for us to organise such a significant event and we look forward to the moment when the noble and unique atmosphere of our hotel emphasises the powerful evening full of inspiring ladies who make the world of Slovak business go around,“ said Katarína Lukáčová, the director of hotel sales and marketing at Tatry mountain resorts, a.s. 

It is the unique location in the centre of Tatranská Lomnica at the foot of Mt. Lomnický štít but also the history of luxury and great gastronomy what make the historic Grandhotel Praha**** attractive. The Art-nouveau hotel with 106 rooms and 17 suites is tailored not only for relaxation in the embrace of the beautiful High Tatras but also for organising significant events, celebrations, weddings, family events and professional conferences. Newlyrefurbished Classic rooms and suites offer flawless comfort with a fresh, new design which goes hand in hand with services of the unique Grand Mountain Spa wellness centre that is based on the concept of the Tatra spa tradition.
