NEWS ABOUT B2B

Bransjebearbeidelse gjenopprettes i Danmark og Nederland. 

Som dere nå alle har fått med dere, måtte Innovasjon Norge i vår stenge ned våre kontorer i Nederland og Danmark grunnet budsjettkutt - men dette er fremdeles viktige markeder for Norge. Nå i disse korona tider, ser vi at våre nærmeste markeder vil være ekstra viktige, og vi har derfor besluttet å opprettholde en tilstedeværelse og informasjonsflyt, håndtert fra hovedkontoret i Oslo.

Vi fortsetter derfor å bearbeide disse markedene, samt sørge for innsikt som kan deles med næringen i Norge. Ingunn Sakshaug har derfor blitt utnevnt til bransjeansvarlig for Danmark og Nederland. Dette vil være i tillegg til hennes rolle som Markedsspesialist Asia og nye utviklingsmarkeder. Ingunn har også tidligere jobbet mot disse to markedene, og har lang erfaring med turoperatørmarkedet.


Market activities at Innovation Norway in the Netherlands and Denmark 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. The tourism representation at the Denmark office will also be discontinued. 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.  There are ongoing considerations, and a dialogue with the industry, about which acitivites that will go forward as planned - and which ones that will be replaced by digital solutions, due to the corona pandemic.


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.
