Yesterday evening, The European Business Awards gala event took place at Hotel Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik. And there’s no wonder why they picked Dubrovnik to celebrate their tenth Awards’ final since Croatia is a country that perfectly reflects the ever changing face of Europe’s dynamic business community. Since Croatia joined the EU back in 2013, the country’s economy quickly evolved with business models moving from low cost outsource and manufacturing operations to inovative international companies with valuable intellectual property. This is why it was improtant for the Croatian finalists to showcase their business strength!
