But it will surely be an unforgettable experience, even if you won’t be able to make the business connections you hoped for.

However, there’s no reason to believe you won’t. EURO EXPO is one of the best events in Nordic countries to connect buyers and sellers of the manufacturing industry. You will be sure to meet many interesting people and get to know companies you might have never heard of. And best of all, save money for your business by making your next purchases from a trusted new contact.
