2018 was a great year for tourism to Norway. Winter tourism has taken off and many tourists are travelling in smaller private groups to experience the Northern Lights. Last year, exhibitors from Northern Norway participated for the first time and the contacts established then have materialised into Thai tourists visiting Loforten, Senja and the area around Alta. Last year was also the first year of operation of the Loen Skylift. Other new and interesting products in Fjord Norway are also showing promise.
This year we are expecting more than 25 exhibitors for the Visit Norway Workshop in Bangkok which will be held at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Hotel on Friday, 25 January 2019. Participants are also invited to meet the senior persons from the travel industry at the annual Norwegian Seafood Dinner on Thursday, 24 January 2019. This event is held in the garden of the residence of H.E. Ambassador Kjersti Rødsmoen.
This is a great opportunity for the travel industry in Norway to meet and discuss future business with the Thai outbound tour operators and travel agents. You can read more about outbound tourism from Thailand to Norway on our Tourism Sector Pages.
