Ever since Slovakia joined the European Union, the heart of Europe has stepped onto the global platform. It was not that long ago that the country was firmly part of the Soviet bloc. Today, it hosts one of the world’s top security conferences. Year after year, GLOBSEC draws to Slovakia impressive crowds and amazing speakers.
