- Digital Workshop
The Nordic Workshop is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with selected tour operators and MICE contacts in the Italian market. It is organized every year by Innovation Norway together with VisitDenmark, Visit Finland, Visit Sweden and Promote Iceland.
We decided to carry out a digital workshop to still be able to provide an opportunity for most of the potential suppliers interested in the market to attend and meet relevant potential buyers.
The objective is to increase business, mainly of leisure travelling, in Norway and the Nordic countries by creating new key contacts in the Italian tourism industry and to meet established contacts and clients to strengthen business.
The goal is to have around 80/100 buyers covering the complete range of the product (leisure groups and individuals, activities such as hiking and biking, winter and shoulder seasons and some MICE) register for the event.
For the first time all the Nordic Tourist Boards have decided to extend this event to the French market, aiming to give more opportunities to the Nordic partners and to the buyers of these two markets. Since the formula is new and digital, as well as happening during the Autumn holidays in France, we can’t foresee the final result. Despite these facts, this digital workshop can be seen as an interesting alternative for regionally based operators and agents not being able to attend our physical activities in Paris.
Price: €300 per company (max. 2 participants)
Includes: 2 days of one-to-one sales meetings. Visibility in the Product Manual and copy of the Market Manual.
Participants: around 80–100 Nordic companies
