Due to the uncertain circumstances regarding the coronavirus outbreak, we have decided to reschedule the Speaker Contest 2020 qualifiers and the final to July and August.
Earlier this week we announced the 40 people who will continue to the qualifying rounds in our Speaker Contest. The qualifiers were supposed to be held during March and April.
“The health of our customers, speakers, partners, and staff is our top priority and we do not want to risk the safety and well-being of anyone in any way. Therefore, after careful consideration, we have decided to reschedule the Speaker Contest qualifiers and the final. With this decision, we also want to contribute to the likeliness of getting the covid-19 situation in control”, says Aslak de Silva, CEO of Nordic Business Forum.
The new dates for the contest are:
Los Angeles: 29 July 2020
Helsinki: 3 August 2020
Tallinn: 4 August 2020
Stockholm: 5 August 2020
Oslo: 6 August 2020
Final in Oslo: 27 August 2020
Regarding our Nordic Business Forum 2020 events in Helsinki & Stockholm and Oslo Business Forum in late September, we are expecting the events to run as planned on the set dates. We also offer full access to our digital content to all our customers. Many big conferences have rescheduled their events to be organized in the fall so we are expecting the covid-19 situation to be in control well ahead of that time.
We will follow the circumstances closely and keep updating the situation if necessary.
