Invitation

 

ORIGINAL LAPLAND NORWAY TRIP 23rd-25th of May

Are you a person working within the visiting industry in the Original Lapland-area (Haparanda – Karesuando, Tornio – Kilpisjärvi)? Perhaps you own a tourism company or are planning on starting one. Maybe you are active within an association that arranges activities for visitors or working with issues regarding the visiting industry for an organization or the public sector.

Are you curious about the development of tourism businesses in other parts of the Arctic? Especially on how the visiting industry is growing in sparsely populated areas and where nature experiences are in focus. Do you wish to increase your network among other entrepreneurs within Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian Lapland? To be inspired by others, get new ideas and perhaps receive new business partners.

Then this trip is for you! Join us for Norway on May 23rd-25th. We’ll have three days full of inspiration, networking, new meetings and off course stunning views.

Here you’ll find the full program.
