Networking Village

After a couple of years of on-line meetings, Lappeenranta is happy to invite people to share experiences and expertise face-to-face.

The 13th EUSBSR Annual Forum will be all about networking, but we also offer some concrete occasions for you to change views, and introduce your findings and solutions during the Forum. This year the Networking Village will, most of all, be based on a new mindset which allows you to learn new things and people – with needed physical show elements. like pictures and brochures.

PAC Walk and Get Together on Tuesday September 27th

“PAC Walk” – PACs are invited to a 20-30 min walk through Lappeenranta’s historical quarters – you will have time to reconnect with each other and hear some stories about the history of our city. Gathering for PAC Walk is at 16:50 by Original Sokos Hotel Lappee, Brahenkatu 1.

In our small get together soiree on Tuesday September 27th at 17.00-20.00, organisations will have an opportunity to set up small stand-alones and desks to share news and findings. The get-together event will be held in Kehruuhuone, in the heart of old Lappeenranta Fortress.

The idea of the event is – to get together! People have not seen each other f2f for two years, and we want to offer an unofficial opportunity to catch up, mingle and enjoy some snacks and refreshments. The program will include

-Welcoming words and Lappeenranta highlights

-History of the venue Kehruuhuone and the old Fortress the venue is located

-Short presentation about the goals and program of the 13th Annual Forum

-Jazz music in the background

-An opportunity to register to the Annual Forum

-An opportunity to chat with Lappeenranta tourism people at a small stand and find out the highlights of the city and, among other things, best places for dinner and entertainment

To see what topics the participant organizations can offer on the small stands that can be set up

Everyone is welcome to join the event any time between 17-20, the short program will start ca 17.30-17.45.There are two meeting rooms also available at Kehruuhuone. In case you want to book one (free of charge) let us know!

Networking Village in the City Hall during the Forum

The very same set up with small expo opportunities can also be constructed in the lobby of Lappeenranta City Hall during the Forum: you will have a chance to talk and network with the delegates between the presentations and plenaries. You can book a small space – 1,5 m x 1,5 m next to the main auditorium. Just let us know!

We will provide a table and chair and an opportunity to fix posters etc. on the wall.
