Connecting Businesses in Lithuania and Norway
AR/VR technologies and gaming have progressed a lot since their day one. Today we see how these solutions and activities are growing out of their former borders and entering other sectors, for example, Education and Healthcare. We are witnessing a change in the Gaming industry, where it has become an e-Sport, an art, and an activity, offering you new possibilities to acquire new skills.
We invite you to this unique arrangement where you can get to know about real-life applications and participate in a panel discussion about whether becoming more and more dependent on today’s technologies leads us in a right direction.

International Growth, and the role of Chambers of Commerce
EUCCN represents a network Chambers and Embassies from 18 different countries from all over the European Union who work with linking bilateral business relations. It is an international business network that works every day to promote trade and business development between Norway and EU.
Most Chambers of Commerce work with bilateral relations, where they provide information and assistance to Norwegian companies wishing to expand abroad, as well as help companies from respective countries to establish their enterprises in Norway.
The network and how to use Chambers to gain access to new markets is new to many. Whatever you might be working with – food industry, tech, IT, investment, fishing or building industries you will always be able to gain access to needed network in EU countries by contacting respective Chambers or Commercial Attaches from Embassies. By using established professional networks, Norwegian companies can more effectively access the international relations with less risk.
This seminar will provide insight into what and how Chambers and Commercial Attaches work, as well as what current issues and projects NHO, Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries as well as Oslo Business Region works with relating to international trade and business development.

I samarbeid med Europabevegelsen i Bergen/Hordaland, EY, Innovasjon Norge, Litauisk-Norsk Handelskammer og ambassadene for Estland, Latvia og Litauen inviterer vi til møte om muligheter i Baltikum.
Fredag 25. september kl 08:30 – 10:00
Grand Bergen, Nedre Ole Bulls plass
De baltiske landene har de siste årene hatt en betydelig større økonomisk vekst enn de «gamle» EU-landene, og flere norske bedrifter har for lengst oppdaget Estland, Latvia og Litauen både som markeder og land det er gunstig å outsorce oppgaver til. De tre baltiske landene representerer et utvidet hjemmemarked med lange og dype felles kulturelle og historiske røtter med de skandinaviske landene.
Selv om der er forskjeller, representer de tre baltiske landene også felles muligheter som det bergenske næringslivet må bli bedre kjent med. Derfor er det med glede vi vil presentere muligheter i alle tre land.
