Experiences is a source of growth for businesses within the service sectors.
Creative Industries, Innovation in the tourism sector and New Nordic Food are initiatives all feeding into the Experience Economy concept. By Experience Economy we mean all businesses within the services sectors of tourism, restaurants, service providers and creative industries - all creating new value for customers.
Nordic Innovation has over the years invested, in a number of initiatives within these sectors which use experiences as a source of growth and broad value creation. The companies can add value to their product and services by using unique experiences as a source of innovation and thereby gain new market opportunities.
