Welcome to

Vestnorden in the Faroe Islands 2019

Dear participants,

We are the proud host of the upcoming Vestnorden on the Faroe Islands. This event is the most important business-to-business trade show in the North Atlantic region, and highlights the characteristics of the three nations, The Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland and gathers number of buyers and exhibitors each year.

The goal for the Vestnorden is to establish new travel trade opportunities as well as reinforcing established relationships with the key actors in the tourism field of the three destinations. As such, the trade show offers you an extensive professional introduction to the products whether you seek unique natural, cultural or adventure experiences.

Every fourth year the Faroe Islands host Vestnorden and we take great pride in being able to welcome all the guests to our country. We see the trade show as a valuable venue each year for suppliers of the three destinations as well as the buyers to connect with new contacts and businesses and strengthen the ties with the three countries.

On behalf of the three countries it is my pleasure to invite You to Vestnorden 2019 on the Faroe Islands.

Guðrið Højgaard,

The West Nordic Region

Three Astonishing Countries

The West Nordic region is one of the world’s most inspiring destinations, offering three astonishing countries: Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Each country has its own character, culture, traditions and history, but they share incredible nature, a warm welcome and an unlimited range of things to see and do.

The West Nordic region is something special. Situated in the North Atlantic, the area’s geographical remoteness has preserved an authentic world of wonderful cultural traditions and natural phenomena.

It’s a region full of things to discover. The adventures are awaiting.
