We have the pleasure of inviting you to an international business seminar – Hanse Business – in Bergen, June 10th 2016.
Date: Friday June 10th 09:00 – 15:00
Place: Grand Bergen, Nedre Ole Bulls plass 1
The seminar is an opportunity to make international connections in your business sector, meet business-to-business and have a free stall to present your products/ideas in front of a large audience. We expect visitors from about 100 cities to The Hanseatic Days, so your reach would be quite extensive. You will also meet several international companies situated in the heart of Bergen and learn more about their business ideas.
The major industries in the Bergen region are seafood, oil, gas and subsea operations, shipping, research and education, and tourism. Bergen is the host of several important business clusters in Norway within these fields, and is aspiring to be known as the seafood capital of the world. Today, 40 % of the world’s salmon production is controlled from Bergen.
