Sweden Innovation Forum

New invitation

 

 

The Swedish tradition of innovation dates back all the way to the 18th century! Worldwide inventions such as Celsius, the Wrench, the Zipper and the Roller Bearing are products of Sweden. The Swedish innovativeness has continued into the modern days with inventions such as the Pacemaker, Skype, Spotify and Candycrush. So, what is the next innovation?

Team Sweden would therefore like to invite you to Sweden Innovation Forum on the Swedish National Day, 6th of June! Sweden Innovation Forum will take place at Metta in California Tower, Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong. On this day, we will celebrate Swedish innovation together with the National Day of Sweden.

The Forum will include interactive sessions with inspirational speakers like Fredrik Härén and panel discussions about Sustainability, Internet of Things and Healthy Livable Cities. Sweden Innovation Forum ends with an official National Day Reception hosted by the Consulate General of Sweden in Hong Kong including cultural and culinary highlights. Guests who attend the full day of the forum are also welcome to the evening reception.
