During Covid, the CCFN has become the E-CCFN

This year, adapting quickly to the circumstances, the CCFN transformed its range of services and events. We invested in new tools and worked with new skilled partners to innovate and launch E-events, E-trade missions, E-learning expeditions, E-wine tastings etc...

The CCFN’s yearly event, The French-Norwegian Days 2020, on the theme of “A Smart and Clean Ocean” was held completely online using a digital platform. The opening session that was live streamed in duplex between Oslo and Paris was a success. The technical sessions included speakers and participants from many different locations in Norway, France and even other countries. More than 80 B2B online meetings took place on the dedicated platform.

In September, a Learning Expedition on the themes of green and smart city and mobility, that was planned in Norway, Sweden and Denmark in September, for the region of Pays de la Loire, was also digitalized in cooperation with Business France.

In cooperation with Business France and BPI France, the CCFN is currently working on an E-mission “French Fab”, helping 18 high potential French companies to get a first contact with the Nordic market. This mission was organized digitally with personal B2B meetings organized online for the companies to meet each other.

A seminar on the main infrastructure and road projects in Norway followed by B2B meetings, organized in cooperation with Business France, Statens Vegvesen (Norwegian Public roads administration), Nye Veier and the law firm Brækhus, was initially planned in Paris in April but has been converted to a digital format and will take place end November.

Even wine tasting had to be rethought… The yearly Tastin’ France event will take place through an online-showroom sent out to wine professionals taking part in the event. And the Bourgogne-Jura Wine Tour that was planned physically in 2020, was transformed into a virtual tour through an E-Catalogue. The goal is for wine importers to discover and taste new wines, as well as meeting the producers digitally.

Norway is a homogeneous digitally advanced market, allowing this kind of transformation. During this difficult period, we managed to create new connections and share a lot of information both ways. We got very good feedback from companies involved in the different digital events or trade missions. We experienced that in some cases we even got better results as it was easier to open doors through online meetings.  We hope that we will be able to arrange physical events again as soon as possible, but we will for sure keep the new digital skills and tools acquired this year to generate more added value. We will launch new hybrid concepts in 2021…
