WHEN? 17 and 18 JUNE 2019
WHERE? AT RADISSON BLU MARINA PALACE HOTEL, TURKU, FINLAND
The Summit is all private, from businesses to businesses event, organised by a group of business professionals working with international trade, business development, marketing, education, energy and management consulting.
We started back in 2013, basically from a scratch with just one crazy idea we had among friends and colleagues in business: how to get companies to browse and realise the potential of those more unknown markets in the world? Not the most usual ones but the ones they have not thought about. Or the ones they leave due lack of resources, as they usually explained.
As always in business, you can keep just wondering or do something. We decided to make the change to happen! There were obviously many around us who kept saying this is all impossible but we didn’t give up. Nowdays we can proudly say that we certainly made it there and we can – and we shall – make it anywhere! Over 550 people from over 300 companies have joined our events since 2014 and we definitely know how this professional platform for business works.
We have certainly tested the concept, listened our supporters, talked with the delegates and developed and fine-tuned the concept to reach the level of maximum support for any company looking for new clients, partners and markets. And we are extremely excited to bring the first Touch Nordic B2B Summit to city of Turku, Finland in June 2019. Turku is a city where trade started in Finland, or centuries before Finland became Finland.
We are expecting around 200 people to join the halls, meeting rooms and stages of Touch Nordic 2019. And there is certainly more to come as we are building an annual event boosting trade and business. Welcome to join us for growth, new business and networking. This is where business happens!
