We invite Nordic tourism businesses and organizations to join us in seeking out the biggest and most important challenges facing Nordic tourism in the years to come.

In six workshops taking place across the Nordic region, we will identify, unfold and finally prioritize the main challenges to the competitive and sustainable development of Nordic tourism. Following inspiration from trend presentations and key findings from cross-Nordic research, we will identify relevant problems that require new and shared solutions.

In the workshops, we will break down the problems as far as we can, and unfold them into real, industry-relevant issues that can serve as starting points for the X-Nordic Travel Contest upcoming: Call for Solutions, where we will work with start-ups and innovators in solving challenges for better Nordic tourism futures.

There is a limited number of seats in each workshop, so find the workshop closest to you, sign up and secure your spot!
