We at Hannes Snellman would like to invite you and your colleagues to our third annual Russian Business Conference for the Nordics on Thursday, 13 October 2016 from 2 - 5 p.m. at our Helsinki office (Eteläesplanadi 20, Helsinki).

The conference is intended to bring together key business people and specialists primarily from the Nordic countries who are working in or have business in Russia. The event will serve as a forum to share ideas about how to successfully implement projects and manage companies and is designed for top management, general counsel and country managers.

A more detailed description of the topic of the event and main speakers can be found below.


Two Years Out: the New Norm or More Changes to Come?
Nordic and Western businesses in Russia were rocked two years ago by geopolitical events and their implications on business. Now, two years out, many companies have been able to adjust to the current situation, many have left Russia altogether, and many more are simply waiting for better times.
