First Nordic
conference for municipalities
and regions on the future of
investment promotion.

You design
your own places.

Why join?

This is the conference where you learn what Nordic places do to attract investments into their region. The theme in 2021 is sustainability.

How can sustainability become the competitive advantage for the Nordics as a whole? How do the strategies and activities of each national investment promotion agency underpin that theme? What success stories have we witnessed from small and medium sized municipalities and what can we learn from them? How will the IPAs navigate a post-pandemic investment landscape? How can the Nordic countries boost each other? And certainly, what do investors themselves think?
