Our focus in the market 2019-2021
Identified segments in the market and how it affects our B2B work:
Adventures in the world of natural beauty’
As this is the biggest segment, where we already have a strong position - we will aim to reinforce this position by reaching out to new tour operators. We will also focus on expanding portfolios of our existing tour operators by encouraging products in new seasons.
Broadening my cultural horizon
To bring out the potential of this segment, we will work with our existing tour operator contacts to introduce new cultural experiences and packages but more importantly, we will aim to find new niche operators within the cultural segments. We believe that there is a lot of potential in expanding the seasons for this segment.
This segment does not need the help of a Tour Operator to the degree that the other segments do in the UK market. For this reason we have given this segment lower priority, but we will continue to work with accommodation providers, such as Novasol for example.
The energy segment is important for the ski and hiking markets in the UK and there could also be potential here for other niche segments such as fishing which we will consider.
By prioritising these segments we will work towards spreading tourism across Norway and throughout the year, thereby contributing to a sustainable growth of tourists to Norway.
Type of products we will have focus on:
All year: soft adventure, cultural experiences, sustainable products, high-end
Spring, summer, autumn: hiking, cycling (all types of tours), birdwatching
