Slovakia Opens Up Shop in Dallas

The Slovak Republic (Slovakia to you and me) is opening a Slovak Consulate in Dallas in May. Slovakia’s Honorary Consul to Dallas, Martin Valko, sends word that there will be a reception to mark the occasion of the opening of the consulate on May 3 at Scottish Rite Hospital. You’re not invited, but you might be interested in the following details:

The consulate opening will also include an internationally renowned art exhibit showcasing children’s book illustrations from award-winning Slovak illustrators. … The internationally renowned art exhibit, which is being flown in directly from Slovakia, will showcase Slovak illustrators awarded at The Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB) from 1967 to 2009, giving you the opportunity to view the best children book illustrations published in Slovakia during the last four decades.

Finally, an investment seminar is planned for Tuesday, May 4, for 8-11 a.m. in partnership with the Dallas Regional Chamber, the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), and American Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia. We are expecting attendance from numerous Texas businesses so they could have the ability to interact with representatives of renowned U.S. companies such as US Steel, Dell Corporation and Ernst & Young which have been doing business in Slovakia. You can register for this seminar by clicking here.

Martin Valko‘s name might sound familiar to people in natatorial circles. That’s because he’s married to Slovak hero Martina Moravcova, a five-time Olympian on whom I’ve had a crush since 2004. You want pictures of her? Of course you do. And while we’re thinking of it, congrats to the new mom and dad, who are expecting their first child in June.
