Doing Business with Finland seminars

Doing Business with Finland seminars offer Finnish operators an easy way to learn about the market potential of target countries and meet local companies.

Every year, Finnpartnership organises seminars in developing markets to bring together Finnish and local companies and organisations. Doing Business with Finland seminars focus on selected industries and support the establishment of new business partnerships between the seminar participants.

Finnish companies are given an opportunity to introduce their operations to the seminar participants, while local companies learn about Finland as a business environment. Every seminar includes a separate B2B Matchmaking session during which Finnish participants can meet and talk with the representatives of local companies. Participation in seminars is free of charge, but companies must cover the travel and accommodation expenses themselves.

The seminars are always held in cooperation with a local organisation whose members include companies that may interest Finnish operators. Such organisations include local chambers of commerce and organisations focused on promoting investments. These seminars require a great deal of preparation to ensure that operators that are best suited for each other have a chance to meet. Doing Business with Finland seminars aim to launch at least two, usually more, new long-term business partnerships between Finnish and local companies.

Marketing of Finnish companies at the seminars

Finnpartnership markets Finnish companies at Doing Business with Finland seminars by distributing company brochures. The brochures contain information of companies participating in the seminars. If necessary, Finnpartnership will represent and introduce companies that have not sent a representative to the seminar and distribute their brochures. 

Companies shall provide Finnpartnership with the brochure content (two PowerPoint slides) by the deadline set. The English-language slides must contain the following information:

  1. Company name and short description
  2. Product image or e.g. service illustration
  3. Definition of what type of partner is being sought
  4. Contact details of the contact person
