The Netherlands Business Lounge: driving innovation and collaboration at Nordbygg 2024

On 23- 26 April 2024 at the Dutch Business Lounge in Stockholm, attendees had the opportunity to meet 15 innovative companies and explore business opportunities together.

We’re thrilled to look back on a successful trade mission to Nordbygg, the largest and most dynamic meeting place for the construction and real estate industry in Northern Europe. Alongside 15 Dutch companies and our collaborating partners, we organized an exciting program to explore business opportunities in the Nordics.

Some of the key highlights from our participants

  • Valuable networking: “During our trip to Sweden, we established many valuable contacts in the construction and real estate sector.”
  • Supportive environment: “The event was well organized, providing opportunities that we would not have had as a stand-alone entity, fostering a good atmosphere where everyone helped each other.”
  • Market insights: “The Nordbygg event allowed us to reach our objectives of conducting thorough market research and setting up an initial network of business partners. To achieve these goals, participants should take an active approach to connect with the right parties.”
