Slovenia - Business Culture and Etiquette
Meeting and greeting
In general, business behaviour in Slovenia is similar to that in the rest of Europe; particularly to Germany and Austria. A handshake before and after a meeting is customary and acceptable.
Care should be taken to shake hands with everyone present at a meeting.
It is customary to shake hands first with the women that are present Immediately after shaking hands at the start of the meeting, it is customary to exchange business cards.
See that you have a sufficient quantity of business cards.
During a first meeting, be careful to observe the organisational status of all the Slovenians present. It is also the custom to use hosts' titles, such as "Doctor" or "Professor", before their names.
