NBF Helsinki 2021 Is Canceled - See You in 2022

We are renewing our digital products and will publish new ones in the near future.

Dear visitor,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that we have to cancel Nordic Business Forum 2021 in Helsinki. We will return with a physical event in September 2022. 

Here’s a brief message from our Co-Founder, Hans-Peter Siefen (the message continues after the video):

Until recently, we remained optimistic that it would be possible to organize a physical event in late September this year as planned. However, in light of the latest developments in the pandemic situation, we will not be able to do so. We were truly looking forward to finally getting together with all our customers, partners, and speakers—but we want to gather only when everyone can feel safe.

All live stream passes are valid for the Oslo Business Forum event organized on 29 September 2021. All tickets to Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2021 are automatically valid for next year’s event organized on 20-21 September 2022.  Alternatively, all our Helsinki 2021 event customers can cancel their ticket(s) and get a full refund. (For practical information check our FAQ.)

Lastly, we want to warmly thank everyone who supported us by keeping their tickets last year and we hope that most of you will stay with us this time around as well   Stay safe!

Sincerely,
Nordic Business Forum Team

Frequently Asked Questions

Why was the Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2021 event canceled?

Throughout the first half of 2021, we remained optimistic that it would be possible to organize a physical event in late September this year as planned. Even though there’s light at the end of the tunnel, we had to come to terms with the fact that the fight against the pandemic is not over. A large indoor gathering like ours with international speakers and guests is simply not possible yet in September 2021. We were truly looking forward to finally getting together with all our customers, partners, and speakers—but we want to gather only when everyone can feel safe. So, unfortunately, we had to cancel Nordic Business Forum 2021 Helsinki event and we will be back with a physical event in Helsinki next year.

When will the next Nordic Business Forum Helsinki event take place?

The next physical Nordic Business Forum Helsinki will be held on 20 - 21 September 2022. We will also continue getting together online for our events and courses. On 21 September, we will have a virtual masterclass with Daniel Kahneman. The next online event will be organized with Oslo Business Forum on 29 September 2021 featuring speakers such as Erin Meyer, Alex Osterwalder, and Rachel Botsman. Check all our upcoming events here.

Why is there not a small-scale hybrid event with some attendees on the spot and some online?

We have no certainty that even small indoor events would be allowed in September in Finland. This year, we will instead join forces with our affiliate company Oslo Business Forum to organize a hybrid event in Oslo on 29 September.

Why didn’t you transform Nordic Business Forum Helsinki event into an online-only event?

We feel it would not be fair to transfer Nordic Business Forum 2021 tickets to any digital form of participation. We rather organize our flagship event as a large-scale physical event next year. This year, we will instead join forces with Oslo Business Forum to organize a hybrid event in Oslo on 29 September.
