Industry day for the tourism industry in collaboration with Innovation Norway


On Friday the 14th of January 2022, TravelXpo in collaboration with Innovation Norway invites you to a completely new conference day for the tourism industry at Telenor Arena – sign up now!


The last year has been challenging for the tourism industry, and we want to put the way forward for Norwegian tourism on the agenda during TravelXpo 2022. It is therefore with great joy and enthusiasm that we now can invite and welcome you to a Industry Day at TravelXpo. Together we will contribute to optimism and a boost that can kick-start the tourism year of 2022, and finally we can meet physically!


There will be exciting lectures and panel debates followed by mingling with good food and drinks when we together will open the “Taste of Norway” area at the fair. Several of Norway’s leading players in tourism will be in place, and together we will create an important arena for Norwegian tourism with a unique opportunity to make important contacts and acquire new and valuable knowledge.


We are in the process of planning, and most of it is already in place. For us, it is important that Industry Day is for and with the industry we are so fond of, therefore we would like to hear from you, what you want us to fill this day with. Do you have input for content or a speaker? Then we would like to hear from you! Send an email to:
