Extending the hand of corporate friendship across the North Sea was the focus of an annual business event which took place in Aberdeen on Monday, September 2nd.
Hosted by Granite PR and timed to precede SPE Offshore Europe 2019, the sixth annual Aberdeen-Norway Gateway at Macdonald Norwood Hall Hotel provided knowledge sharing and networking opportunities for businesses seeking to establish or grow a presence in their counterpart location.
An impressive line-up of speakers included the ONS Foundation, Safewell Solutions, Widerøe, Anderson Anderson Brown LLP, Kuro, Storvik – Arctic Europe, Munro's Travel and Ecosse IP.
Commenting on the success of the 2019 event, Granite PR Founder and Managing Director and Aberdeen-Norway Gateway Creator Brett Jackson said: “Whilst Scotland and Norway are very individual and unique, they also have much in common such as a pervading culture of looking beyond home nation for opportunities to grow corporate horizons.
“The Aberdeen-Norway Gateway exists to celebrate those synergies and maximise opportunities to learn about doing business abroad and we hope that delegates left feeling energised and inspired by the range of speakers we heard from on the day.”
Aberdeen-Norway Gateway 2019 chairperson Mark Munro of DNB Bank ASA added: “For me, the overriding theme of the day was one of positivity. This event brought together a diverse range of people with a singular appetite for international knowledge and I am confident that the connections and energy created will lead to positive relationships and outcomes for many participating delegates and organisations.”
