A significant number of investors have already recognized their interest in the region which, according to its tourism growth rate, is one of the top 10 tourist destinations in the world. This is why they have already established their businesses in this sector. Yet, in addition to exceptional beauty of nature which, in the space of just a few hundred kilometers, includes mountain ranges, lakes, rivers, the Adriatic Sea and towns whose monuments are under UNESCO protection, this region offers many additional opportunities for investment. Energy, agriculture, real estate, infrastructure, IT industry, food industry, education, finance, sports and culture are segments that can be invested in, and they are the fields in which a number of projects will be presented at this year's conference. With the goal of achieving an even more extensive and efficient business networking, a specially designed online platform (www.sbf.talkb2b.net) dedicated to presenting one’s companies and projects can be used to get acquainted with the submitted projects even before the conference starts, as well as to schedule B2B meetings which will take place on the second day of the 9th Sarajevo Business Forum.
