Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic will present its potential to Americans during a two-day exhibition in the Bohemia National Hall in Manhattan, New York.
Organisied by IPRN member Crest Communications the first day, October 1, will be devoted to the exceptional cultural and architectural genius of the city. The main theme will be Tugendhat Villa, reopened in spring after extensive renovations. In addition to a workshop on the Villa there will be an exhibition dedicated to this unique monument, which is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Crest will present the whole of Brno in a broader context and will end the first day with a soirée.
The aim of day two will be to present the business, scientific and research potential of Brno. Through these ‘Brno Days’ Crest expect to strengthen existing ties with American business partners and to establish further contacts with potential new investors. The core of the whole second day is a symposium “Brno – City of the knowledge economy and emerging industries with high added value”.
The event will be held under the auspices of the Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs and of the U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic and in cooperation with the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York, the American Chamber of Commerce in the Czech Republic and the Czech Center New York. Brno business partners who already have US partners will also attend the event to explain further the advantages of doing business with Brno.
This event is an expansion of activity for Crest who have, for many years, been responsible for organising the City of Brno presentation at MIPIM, the largest property and investment opportunities fair in Europe held in Cannes every year.
