  • Møbler og interiør
  • Metaller, Paneler og rekkverk
  • Datagulv

This week we have also construction suppliers Piiroinen and GBuilder visiting potential clients and projects in Norway, so looking forward to a great week ahead. Construction companies are also looking for suppliers to all subcategories mentioned on our website. So construction industry is currently really active and we are planning to do the same in other industries as well.

Last week I had a chance to met an electronic components supplier who said that the current situation in offshore industry is actually affecting their business in a very positive way too. This is because quite many new technologies are brought into Offshore industry. This means that in challenging times there are always new great opportunities coming up for other related industry suppliers.

Now it seems like the whole country is preparing for the Easter break too. So just a reminder that don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from Norwegian companies in the next couple of weeks. Most probably the majority of them are on the mountains enjoying skiing.:-)

When you are planning your visits to Norway, don’t forget to check out other conference or Networking events, such as  oil&gas or in construction industry.

Have a great week!
