Event Overview

“This is the most valued event for those who cover credit activities of various origins in CEE region”

Igor Biryukov, SME Bank

The landmark event for lenders and borrowers in Central and Eastern Europe


Local banks are dominating much of the lending volume in CEE, with borrowers achieving highly favourable pricing. International banks must adapt to this extremely aggressive pricing environment to remain competitive. The conference is the leading meeting place for financiers and borrowers throughout the region, and a unique opportunity to establish your business in the face of a rapidly changing lending landscape.

  • Opportunities for international banks amid strong local liquidity

  • Improving perception of Russian risk – which deal structures are prominent in the Russian market, and are sanctions coming to an end?

  • Prospects for the growth of Schuldschein in CEE

  • Are leveraged deals driving syndications in CEE?

  • Will the influx of Chinese capital into CEE live up to expectations?
