The theme for Nordic Edge Expo 2019 is Life Actually because technology is an enabler for change. However, the most important asset of a liveable and sustainable community is its people. This year approximately 5000 attendees from 50 countries are expected to come to Stavanger, Norway for the event.
Nordic Edge Expo is an exciting and very important arena for us. For the municipalities, it is a great opportunity to meet, learn from others, and to show their own work
Helene Arholm, Regional Director of KS
If you haven’t been to Nordic Edge Expo before, plan on coming next year. There is a really great buzz. People are walking around talking to exhibitors, talking to each other. Asking some really great questions.
Richard Elberger, Global IoT Partner Solutions Architect, Amazon
It is fantastic because you can see so many people really committed to the future, to what is important. It’s particularly interesting to see the connection between decisions made at political level and what happens in every day life for citizens and try to go beyond the big words which we hear everywhere and try to understand what it really means in practical terms, because it is only if you what happens in real life for every citizen you can actually make the right decisions.
Thierry Béchet, EUs Ambassadør til Norge
The Nordics have an opportunity, even a responsibility to take a real leadership position on all things sustainability, sustainable cities and beyond. I am very impressed and would say that Nordic Edge Expo is the right place to do it.
Robert Strand, University of California, Berkeley and Copenhagen Business School
I am very inspired. If you want to describe digital and moving that into liveability its about partnerships and that can happen here at Nordic Edge.
Hilde Tonne, Chief Innovation Officer at Ramboll Group
