By on February 24, 2016

When Euro Mine Expo together with Atlas Copco invited embassies in Sweden for a networking event in the Atlas Copco Hall in Stockholm, about 40 representatives came.

Ambassadors and trade commissioners from as example Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, Poland, South Africa, Turkey and Ukraine visited the Atlas Copco mine in Sickla.

Annika Berglund, Senior VP Corporate Communications and Governmental Affairs at Atlas Copco welcomed the participants and shared the history of mine and the future path for Atlas Copco. Elina Rantanen, Project Manager at Business Sweden, presented the Mining for Generations project, informing on the opportunities in Sweden for mining. Euro Mine Expo was presented by Project Manager Jaana Tengman, inviting the attendees to Skellefteå June 14 to 16. Euro Mine Expo offers learning, networking and a multitude of business opportunities, something that was very well received amongst the participants.

The seminar ended with afternoon tea, an excellent opportunity for networking and discussions.

“Low metal prices requires innovative and efficient solutions to increase profitability. Many companies use the current situation to build for the future. Now they have the time to extend their networks and share their messages. An international Trade Fair and Conference, as Euro Mine Expo, is an efficient solution. The large interest here today also shows that Euro Mine Expo is one of Europe’s most important meeting points for the mining industry.”, says Jaana Tengman.
