  • Superb event! :) This is the place if you want to grow or be the best in your field,- then you must be here and represent your company. This is also the place where you can meet new business partners and hear new ideas as well as learn existing best practices andestablish contacts.There always are also at least few members from government so you can deliver your message to them personally in a friendly way - so it is a step to make things and good ideas happen.

    Some advices for the participants:

    1) Be there!
    2) Be open minded (because others will give you a lot of good info)!
    3) Take and give away at least 100 business cards :) - make it like your marketing event :)!
    4) Know your goal!
    5) Know your business (!) and get the worthwhile contacts for business!
    6) Write feedback :)
    7) Remember to get into contact & work with your new business contacts! :) ... :)) Contact at leaston LinkedIn, or the like :-))

    P.S. one of the newest ideas that I was electrified by in the best way was how Ints Teterovskis and the choir "Balsis" with their performance opened this event. It was great. A lot of thanks to hosts and all participants :)

    Wishing you all the best,

    Sincerely Yours,

  • The 10th International business forum intrigued me with a modern-topic for "Innovation and new business ideas. Defiantly export markets." Everything presented in the forum certainly justified my expectations. I was particularly pleased to observe the talented Latvian new generation`s project presentations.
    During my own professional work, before I became a writer, I attended business forums in many countries, gaining a variety of experiences. In addition to interesting forums I have also experienced frustration in poorly motivated, grey and carelessly presented ones, thus, I feel a special ambience of the bright and refreshing approach of the Riga International Forum. It is a great skill and a special talent - to conduct a meaningful business forum on complex, sometimes highly technical topics in a light and entertaining way.
    Yes, Riga International business contacts forums take place in high spirits from the first to the last moment. The festive feeling is created by the technical staff - beautiful ladies who meet every participant with a charming smile. At the time of registration every guest feels welcomed because they have been welcomed as friends and colleagues.
    A wonderful tradition is the opening of the Forum with high-calibre musical performances. It is not only the moment of a beautiful piece of art. I am sure that every member of the forum, like myself, at the opening moments of the forum feels the life-giving power of our consciousness to forget our daily worries and unleash our creativity.
    The atmosphere at the Forum is very conducive for networking. During the 10th Forum I had an opportunity to meet with the Indonesian Ambassador and share memories and impressions about his country, which I have also described in my book "From the Berlin Wall to the 38th Parallel". Already ten years ago, I underlined our untapped potential for cooperation with Indonesia. I think the Indonesian Ambassador`s participation in the forum will give a new impetus to the development of these opportunities.
    However, it was particularly important for me to meet another creative personality - an experienced producer, who stimulated me to achieve a new milestone in my creative work.
    I could go on to mention many more positive aspects of Riga forums, but a good impression of the businesslike manner and respect for the rules of procedure must be noted too. I would only add that a lovely highlight of the forum was the warm Supper at the restaurant "KEY TO RIGA", where the special atmosphere was in perfect harmony with the festive mood of the forum.
    As an experienced professional in my field, I know very well that nothing happens in an empty space, and that the success of any event depends on the organizing talent, capacity for work and other personal skills and characteristics. Therefore from the bottom of my heart, I would like to congratulate TĀLIVALDIS Kreislers, Chairman of the Board, International Forum Networking Consortium, and the charming Mrs. Mara - his trusted assistant, for the brilliantly implemented events.

  • 11th International Business Contact Forum - a remarkable event and it is worth to visit for every person who is related to the business world.

    I want to say a big thank you to the organisers -Tālivaldis and Māra for an outstanding event, where people from various fields meet to talk about that is interesting for all – the Business!
