Norway Trade Fairs hosts both trade and open shows. About half of these exhibitions are staged for its own account, with the rest organised by external bodies. Among the largest events in the programme are Reiseliv (the Norway International Tourism and Travel Trade Fair), Jobb & Utdanning (the Norwegian International Careers & Education Exhibition), Gave & Interiør (the Gift & Interior Exhibition), Nor-Shipping, the Sjøen for Alle boat show and Bygg Reis Deg (the Nordic Building Exhibition).
A number of these shows have experienced an expansion in exhibitors and visitors since the move to Lillestrøm.
Lillestrøm just outside Oslo is the new Norwegian hub for personal meetings and experiences. Norway Trade Fairs occupies a central location in this town, close to its railway station. It is only 11 minutes by train or 15 minutes by car from Oslo?s central station ? and 13 minutes by rail from the capital?s Gardermoen airport.
Norway Trade Fairs creates value for Norwegian and international industry and commerce by providing a service for visitors, exhibitor and organisers which is cost-effective and tailored to market needs.
The need for personal contact is growing in an increasingly electronic world. And what other medium can outdo an exhibition in providing the opportunity for a personal meeting ? where contacts are forged and relationships developed?
Exhibition organisers have become meeting facilitators, and shows combined with events are attracting ever greater interest. Staging events in association with an exhibition enhances the experience for visitors, while creating a more effective meeting place for the exhibitor.
Norway?s largest exhibition and congress centre in Lillestrøm serves both as an international arena for exhibitions, congresses and events, and as a meeting place for local activities. A new setting provides increased opportunities, and modern facilities reinforce the experience for events large and small. It makes participation easier and visiting more attractive.
