Business, science, and society leaders from the Baltic States, as well as globally renown experts will meet in Lithuania for the third time to discuss global and regional challenges. On 1 st June 2017 one of the key business conferences in the Baltics – Baltic Investors’ Forum or BIF 2017 – will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Conference will start in:

Expert insights

This year’s conference will focus on latest geopolitical tsunamis – especially those occurred during the last year – and its imperatives to local and global economies. Could it be possible that we were looking for reasons, answers and solutions in the wrong place altogether? BIF 2017 invites to discuss it with prominent experts and take a broader look to the future than ever before. Together we will search for new formula for the education system. The participants will share local business success stories on the global market and lessons on attracting FDI in the current, shifting and highly competitive market. BIF 2017 offers ideas and perspectives from highly renowned speakers such as geopolitics expert George Friedman, EU ambassador to Russia Vygantas Ušackas, Former CEO of Mazeikiu Nafta Jim Scheel and more than 30 prominent speakers.


The biannual event bringing together more than 500 stakeholders provided a unique platform for leaders from the government, political parties, business, academia and civil society to discuss these issues as well as explore cooperation possibilities and growth initiatives in the Baltic area. Over 120 Honorary Consuls of Lithuania will come to the conference and will bring together foreign business delegations to meet with the participants. Today, global economy context has created new opportunities as well as new challenges for growing exports, attracting foreign direct investment through the means of country competitiveness, thus increasing internationalism of the global economy. However emerging geopolitical challenges provide a new perspective and a need to rethink the road ahead. To be relevant, the event is taking the SMART approach to be specific in cases, meaningful in proposed opportunities, aspiration, realistic and time-related to ongoing global processes.

Networking platform

Networking is particularly important part of the Forum. We all have an opportunity to surround ourselves with active and creative people and cloud up our social network streams with extraordinary individuals. For the third time in succession, a special networking and matchmaking arrangement – B2B meetings – will be at the disposal of companies and enterprises in order to establish new business relationships and foster higher volume of trade and investment. Companies and business organizations will be able to book meetings with each other and consult with experts who are competent in cross-border business relationships.

Tickets are currently available from 300€! Join us in Vilnius on June 1-st!
