We bring key connections within your reach.



The Arctic market is different from anything we’ve ever seen before. The business opportunity, driven by vast natural resources and new transportation routes, is enormous – this much we know for sure. The Nordic countries and Russia alone will invest an estimated 100 billion euros in it by 2020.

Already now, there is a high demand for clean technology and other sustainable solutions. It is quite clear that, whether in production, technology sector, or business services, it is crucial to follow the new market closely and proactively.

Join us at the next ROI Finland meeting in the city of Rovaniemi. Connect with colleagues, visit businesses in the Arctic and get to know the local business-development players.

The full-day program will be held in conjunction with the Arctic Business Forum, the leading conference on the Arctic economy.


Friday, March 14 from 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM

The program will start on March 13 with a dinner hosted by the Mayor of Rovaniemi. You can join the Arctic Business Forum March 13th at a special ROI Finland price.
