B2B meetings, May 5th, 2015 - Hotel Hans Egede

As a prelude to FUTURE GREENLAND 2015, we plan to hold a day of B2B meetings which will create opportunities to strengthen your business contacts and form new networks. Get the most out of Future Greenland 2015 by participating in this networking event.

When you register for Future Greenland 2015, you will be asked to state your company profile. This profile will form the basis for how the B2B meetings are matched later on in the process. We expect that the series of meetings will involve up to 15 sessions, each of 15 minutes’ duration.

We hope that the business community will be widely represented by the mining, fishing and tourism industries, and by service companies and other subcontractors, in order to optimize the benefits of the B2B day on 5 May 2015.

The day will begin with several inspiring kick-off presentations from amongst others the Arctic Cluster of Raw Materials, as input for subcontractors to the mining and oil & gas industries.
