B2B Aktiviteter avlyses eller utsettes til august 2020
Som følge av den pågående Korona pandemien, har vi i samsvar med våre utekontorer besluttet å avlyse eller utsette planlagte B2B aktiviteter innenfor Leisure og Meetings frem til august. Vi arbeider nå med å finne gode digitale løsninger for våre B2B aktiviteter, og vil holde dere oppdatert på progresjonen her. Samtidig vet vi at norske leverandører og tilbydere står oppi store utfordringer, og ikke nødvendigvis har kapasitet til å delta på våre aktiviteter pr. nå uansett. Det samme gjelder de internasjonale kundene som har mer enn nok med å rydde opp i alle utfordringer pandemien har påført dem. Vi vil i tiden som kommer ha en tett dialog med hele reiselivsnæringen i forhold deres behov på kort og lang sikt, for å sikre de beste løsninger fremover.
Innovasjon Norge / Visit Norway avvikler kontoret i Nederland
Som følge av budsjettreduksjon og nye strategiske føringer, vil alle markedsaktiviteter i Nederland stanses. Innovasjon Norges reiselivsansatte i Oslo vil i tiden fremover sørge for enkelte aktiviteter i Nederland og Belgia.
Innovasjon Norge vil fortsette å bearbeide markedet gjennom forbrukermarkedsføring, koordinert fra Oslo. Turoperatører vil også fortsatt ha mulighet til å delta på Norwegian Travel Workshop. Media har anledning til å henvende seg via skjema på visitnorway.com.
Endringene trer i kraft umiddelbart.
B2B Activities cancelled or postponed until August 2020
As a result of the ongoing Corona pandemic, we have together with all our offices abroad decided to cancel or postpone all planned B2B activities within the Leisure- and Meetings segments until August. We are now working on developing good digital solutions for all our B2B activities and will keep you informed on the progress. We also know that Norwegian providers are all in the experiencing challenges these days, and most likely do not have the capacity to participate in any of our activities currently. The same goes for all international clients, who face the same challenges as the Norwegians do. We will, in the time to come, have a close dialogue with the entire tourism industry, regarding what needs there are short term and long term, in order to ensure the best solutions for the future.
Market activities in the Netherlands to be discontinued
Due to budget reductions and new strategic guidelines, all market activities in the Netherlands will be discontinued. Visit Norway's head office in Oslo will be looking after some activities in the Netherlands and Belgium moving forward.
Visit Norway will continue to stimulate the markets through consumer marketing coordinated from Oslo. Tour operators will be able to participate at the annual Norwegian Travel Workshop. Press will be able to register their enquiries through Visit Norway’s online portal.
These changes will take effect immediately.
