This is why you should attend

Business Development

We choose the best experts and speakers in the world to share their knowledge with you. By listening to these world-class speakers share their success stories and expertise in business and leadership, you can learn how they have done it and gain ideas and inspiration for your business. The speakers include the world’s foremost business experts, leaders, thinkers, researchers, and influencers. Learning from the speakers is one of the key reasons why our customers choose to join our events year after year.


Our events bring together C-level decision makers and business owners from the Nordics, Europe and beyond. We have attendees coming from over 45 countries. For you, this means that you will be part of a community of people who are willing to build a strong network and aspire to learn from each other. With Brella networking tool you can book meetings with almost anyone attending the conference. With 15-minute meetings slots, you are able to meet several business executives during the breaks. If you are looking for new customers, you will have a wide range of decision-makers to meet under one roof.

Personal Development

If you are looking for guidelines on what you as a leader need to know and master, this is the place to be. With world-class speakers on leadership and personal development, you will hear concrete examples and tips on where to focus in the future. You will get a wide variety of speeches ranging from economics to leadership and management processes, from success stories to difficult situations. We will provide you with a full menu of ideas, which will help you focus on your personal development and give you a direction for the future.

Team Building

Strong teams with high motivation achieve the best results. That is why many of our customers bring their whole management team to our events. When you learn something together and have a common understanding of the future challenges and opportunities, you can create a better future for your company. By bringing your management team, you will accelerate your team’s growth and development and expose them to new perspectives, inspiration, and ideas. This will then accelerate your company’s growth and development.


Busy C-level executives and business owners have seldom time to take 2-days off from regular duties and fully concentrate on themselves. The company cannot grow if the leaders don’t grow. That is why it is vital to take the time off in the right setting and focus on learning and getting inspired. You will be able to enjoy your time with the speakers, network with other C-level executives and business owners, take part in vivid group discussions and enjoy a top-notch and all-inclusive catering in our networking area.

Customer Experience

We take pride in putting together an impressive speaker lineup and a top notch customer service to serve our bright-minded event attendees. When you enter the venue of Nordic Business Forum, you are treated with world-class customer service. You don’t need to worry about anything. Every little detail has been taken into account so that you can just sit back, enjoy, and focus on yourself. We want to make sure that the time you spent with us will be an experience to remember.
