TOGETHER II |

A unique art exhibition curated from artists within the ranks of our profession. Following the huge success of last year's vernissage, we have decided to establish a tradition. So this year we'll meet once again on the eve of the conference on Tuesday November 8 for TOGETHER II, the unofficial opening event of eBF. We still have gallery space for any artists among you to come and exhibit your work!

Friday's long breakfast |

We've completely changed our approach to the Friday. There’ll be fifteen round tables in the Congress Hall, each with ten places and breakfast. Each table will be hosted by a chosen speaker with a prepared discussion topic, although participants are free to expand the topic of discussion. After 40 minutes the beautiful speakers will rise and change tables.

The programme is already shaping up |

We've posted a draft programme on the website which is being constantly updated and supplemented. This year we have added a further conference space and there will be interpretation in four conference spaces. The programme is based primarily on an analysis of specific practical examples. Apart from this, we've also redesigned the programme layout, and it's a joy to behold :)

Buying cars a little differently than usual |

Miloš Pochobradský will give advice on factoring into the procurement of cars extra costs associated with their operation within the constraints of the law. The message to the conference from Tallinn ill be that life cycle costs are for now the great unknown in public tenders. Practical examples of how these tenders can be managed successfully and without fear will be the major challenge of this year's eBF.
