All Inclusive Delegation Trip to USA


28.10.–4.11.2023, Atlanta, USA

Do you have plans to expand to a new market?

Is you company interested in the USA Market?

Join us to learn more about the Markets in the USA!

Viexpo in co-operation with Nordic Business Council and S&C Business Development will

arrange a Delegation Trip to Atlanta.

The trip will take place from October 28th to November 4th, 2023.


The Delegation Trip is a continuation of the successful Nordic Business Exchange Roundtable networking and discussion event that we arranged together in June 2023.


During the Trip you will have several possibilities to meet with local actors of interest. We will arrange visits, participate in a larger event and have B2B meetings. All of the activities during the Trip will provide business opportunities and possibilities to meet with relevant actors and potential business partners. The Trip also includes a Serie of Digital Trainings to be completed before the Delegation Trip. The idea is to prepare the company for meetings with relevant actors and potential customers and partners in USA.
