What is Visit Norway Connect?
Visit Norway Connect is an annual meeting place for Norwegian providers of touristic products or services, who are interested in doing business with companies in The Netherlands and Belgium. Previously known as the Norway Workshop.
Our goal is to facilitate for an arena that inspires you as an organiser of travel packages, and that motivates you to cooperate with the best fitting Norwegian partners for your business. It is about learning, networking and actual business-making.
When you register for this event, we expect you to be open for our partners and to be ready, able and willing to cooperate. At first glance, a company may not seem relevant to you, but you might be surprised!
