We are delighted to invite you to #MeetInNorway in Bodø

Welcome to MeetInNorway 19th to 21st of October, 2022.

"In a world where walls are built to keep people apart, it is our responsibility to build bridges. In our Arctic landscape we must facilitate collaborations without boundaries. The best way to do that is to allow people to meet, share experiences, and learn about each other.”

This was one of the main motivations behind Bodø´s application to become the first European Capital of Culture north of the arctic circle.  

The European Capital of Culture 2024 Bodø, is a fast growing city surrounded by spectacular nature and you will get the chance to learn more about the journey from cold to cool!

In addition to the workshop where you will meet suppliers from all over Norway, you will get the opportunity to experience what Bodø has to offer as a meeting and incentive destination. And hopefully, you will also get to meet Lady Aurora Borealis, the northern light! She often appears this time of year.

The workshop in brief

We invite you to take part in this workshop where we  aim to bring together about 25 Norwegian suppliers: destination convention bureaus, DMCs, activity providers, hotels, and venues. The workshop will be held at Scandic Hotel Havet in Bodø, a city located just north of the Arctic Circle and surrounded by spectacular nature.

FAM trips

In addition to the workshop, you will be able to register for a FAM trip from Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd October.  You can choose between a FAM trip to Oslo, the capital city, or the region around Bodø, in Northern Norway. More detailed information will follow.
