Nordic Business Forum acquired parts of Oslo Business Forum in May this year. The two companies work together to offer their customers the best conference experience possible. The cooperation between the two companies has taken new forms as the Executive Producer of Oslo Business Forum, Andreas Kustås, will also take the lead of the production of Nordic Business Forum events in Helsinki and Stockholm. Nordic Business Forum’s co-founder Hans-Peter Siefen, who previously led the production of the NBForum events, will from now on focus fully on his responsibilities as Chairman of the Board and the internationalization process of Nordic Business Forum as a part of that.
Andreas Kustås will be leading the production of the three largest leadership conferences in the Nordics. That includes the main responsibility for the implementation of the conference in Helsinki with 7,500 participants and 20,000 via streaming, Stockholm with 2,000 participants and Oslo with 3,500 participants.
“I have full confidence in Andreas and we are very pleased that he is accepting the role as Executive Producer for our conferences. With Andreas in this position, I can concentrate fully on the responsibility as Chairman of the Board and the internationalization process for the company. He is both structured and creative. He has very relevant experience from Oslo Business Forum that we will benefit from. At the same time Andreas will be able to bring a lot of valuable things from Nordic Business Forum in Helsinki and Stockholm to our event in Oslo,” says Hans-Peter Siefen, Founder and Chairman of Nordic Business Forum.
Andreas Kustås started as a Project Manager for Oslo Business Forum in November 2017. Since then he’s been responsible for the implementation of four conferences with thousands of participants and speakers ranging from international superstars to former world leaders.
When the next conferences take place in September next year, it is with Kustås as Executive Producer for 35 speakers and conference halls packed with approximately 13,000 business executives.
“I am humbled and proud of the trust that I am being shown by the management in both Oslo Business Forum and Nordic Business Forum. I look forward to playing an important role, both in the strategic cooperation between the countries and in the creation of the coolest conferences for leaders internationally,” concludes Andreas Kustås.
