LEADING INTO
THE UNKNOWN:

– Transformative technologies and their
radical impact on business and society

Norway Summit 2017 will be exploring the unknowns of our common future in light of technological innovation. What will the future look like? We know the buzzwords and we see progress in many areas, but what impact does the new technology have on us?

We will bring in world-class keynote speakers and think-leaders to enlighten us and to help prepare business leaders, politicians and academics on the fore coming of the future.

The Norway Summit conference aims to create drive and innovation. We invite industry and commerce to a dialogue with top international and national business representatives and experts, premise providers and decision-makers.
