Nordic digital workshop
Date: 16th-18th November
This workshop is a unique opportunity to meet selected buyers in one to one meetings.
The combination of deep knowledge of the market and of personal relationship with the buyers will help to make every supplier meet the most relevant buyers during the workshop.
Although we will hold the workshop digitally, we will invite the tour operators locally for a networking event in Milano the day before the workshop starts ( 16th of November). The workshop itself will last 2 days, 17th & 18th of November.
Registration is now open: Nordic Workshop Italy 2021 | Home (converve.io)
Deadline to register to the workshop: 1st of October
Background and goals
The Nordic Wokshop is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with selected tour operators (mainly) and MICE contacts in the Italian market and is organized this by Innovation Norway, Promote Iceland, VisitDenmark, Visit Finland and Gateway South.
This year the objective is twofold, to help the restart of business mainly of leisure travelling, in Norway and Nordic countries by creating new key contacts in the Italian tourism industry as well as meeting again established contacts and clients to strengthen the trade network.
The idea is still to carry out a digital version of the workshop to give the opportunity to all the Norwegian travel trade to attend the event and to organize a physical event prior of the workshop (in Milan) for Italian Buyers and Travel trade press with the participation of some selected suppliers from each Nordic country.
The goal is to get 100 buyers covering the complete range of the product (leisure groups and FITs, activities such as hiking and biking, all seasons, sustainable products and some MICE).
