Why attend in 2019
Industry Summit participants describe this event as an easy high quality networking event with a pleasant atmosphere and high level customer service and organization. There is always a good mixture of doing serious business, trends & insights for business growth and excellent Oulu style ice breaking programme.
Over 90 % of the participants would attend Industry Summit again and recommend this event. Both exhibition stands and evening party were sold out in 2017. There were 12 nationalities among 550 participants. In 2019 the seminar consept as well as the exhibition area will be renewed. Both formal and informal networking will be emphasized. Once again in 2019 Industry Summit will be carried out in a non-traditional way with arctic twist. The essence and heart of Industry Summit is doing things with Oulu attitude; being open, sharing and persistent.
Torbjørn Amundsen, KPMG Law Attorneys at Law AS. Keynote speaker 2017.
”As a keynote speaker I contributed with insights based on my own experience and expertise. Afterwards, as a visitor during the summit, it struck me how inspiring it was to move around and mingle with the other speakers and exhibitors and exchange ideas and viewpoints. I can for sure say that I learnt more from them than I thought to them; and I went home a wiser man than I was when I came”.
Tuomas Matila, Berggren Oy. Exhibitor.

”I was at the Industry Summit on a full day visit on October 5th, 2017. I attended the B2B matchmaking event where I got valuable business, research and public sector contacts. Our company’s cooperation with Rakeistus Oy and SFTec Oy demonstration plant project in Oulu started in Industry Summit 2017 and still continues. Cooperation with the University of Oulu started in Industry Summit and still continues as well. As a result of successful conversations with the representative of municipality Tyrnävä I was also able to strengthen our future cooperation concerning different types of projects”.
