In October 2019, Nordic Business Forum 2019 will open its doors to explore everything related to growth. We’re thrilled to be able to come back for our 10th year in a row and we will be joined by a host of fantastic partners, many of which have been with us for several years. We are very grateful to all our partners for their support and help in making our events an unforgettable experience each year.
Our partners work in a variety of ways to create immersive experiences for our attendees. One of the most interesting ways that our partners make use of their time with our audience is by hosting experience areas in which attendees can interact with a company’s products and/or services and speak to company representatives. The companies that are hosting experience areas this year are marked with an asterisk below. Partners can also organize other activities and events outside of our event days and locations.
Here’s a full list of all our partners for Nordic Business Forum 2019.
