About NRBF

Since 2010, the Norwegian-Russian Business Forum has become a unique meeeting arena for Norwegian and Russian business, and an important annual event supported by the governments of Norway and Russia.

The NRBF represents a sector-independent forum where professionals from the two countries can meet and discuss today's challenges in the bilateral trade and economic relations. The program offers ample time for networking under the sessions, during lunches, coffee breaks and social events.

Professionals with expertise in the same sector during the round table sessions will provide participants with a deeper understanding of their common challenges and a possibility to go in-depth in several selected issues. When sharing experience with business representatives from other sectors and industries, both during plenary session and during networking sessions, participants will receive new impulses which may help to develop an alternative and more effective approach. Exchange of knowledge and experience is especially valuable in the changing environment.

This Forum's target group in Norway is Norwegian and international companies, organisations doing business in Russia, as well as companies planning to start their business or wishing to learn more about aspects of doing business in Russia. Accordingly, the main target group in Russia is Russian and international companies already dealing with Norway or willing to initiate business contacts with Norwegian companies in the Russian or international market.
