Background & Goals
Innovation Norway conducted #MeetInNorway for the first time in 2019 with the aim of establishing an annual event and workshop for Norwegian suppliers and international buyers of meeting and incentive products. #MeetInNorway is a B2B workshop with pre-booked meetings in combination with more informal networking through different social activities.
There will also be possible to apply for a fam trip after the workshop. Our goal is to be able to offer 3 different fam trips to different regions of Norway to the buyers attending. Please see separate criteria for fam trips. More information about deadline for applying etc. will come soon.
Those hosting a fam trip to their destination get a great possibility to show their offers and get to know the buyers and their needs even better.
Goal for the activity: 25 international buyers attending the workshop/event
Type of activity
We are convinced that to bring the buyers to Norway give them an extra value, a value that you as a supplier will take advantage of. To experience the destination and the products, makes it easier for the buyers to sell Norway to their clients when they get back home. We also belive that a mix of a B2B workshop with pre booked appointments and a more informal event, is a good combination to optimize the ROI for all participatns.
Who is this for?
- Destinations/Convention Bureaus
- Product/activity providers
It will be a mix of buyers knowing Norway well already and buyers that never have been in Norway/sent clients to Norway. There will also be a mix of buyers from different industry sectors, meaning there will be a variety of what kind of suppliers/products they are looing for.
This activity suites for most kind of Norwegian MICE suppliers, if you fulfil the criterias for attending Innovation Norway’s international B2B activities.
If you have not worked with the international MICE market before, this is a great arena to test the interest for your product towards international buyers.
Type of clients:
- Meeting planners/corporate
- Incentive houses (representing several companies)
- Event agencies
- Incentive agencies
- Travel agencies
- International DMCs
Since the buyers come from all industry sectors, there is also a huge variety in what they are looking for.
The buyers often look for new and intersting destinations and products to offer their clients.
