On March 15, AmCham Sweden collaborated with six other Chambers of Commerce at the newly opened United Spaces Studio in the city of Malmö. AmCham will now have the capacity to work out of this location to better serve our members who have business offices in southern Sweden.
The purpose of this cooperative effort was to focus on the benefits that the various Chambers have to offer members within their networks. Insights into why Malmö and the Öresund region are strategically beneficial to establish and grow businesses were also shared.
More than 90 people were in attendance as invited guests of AmCham, as well as those from the British-Swedish, Dutch-Swedish, French-Swedish, Swedish-Southern Africa, Scandinavian Gay And Lesbian, and Malmö Chamber of Commerce.
The evening was highlighted by a presentation from Joel Eklund, CEO at TePe Munhygienprodukter AB. TePe has its headquarters and all production facilities in Malmö, where its operations originally began. Today, TePe is a leading oral hygiene company with an international presence.
Prudence Persson, Founder and CEO of Industry Frontiers AB also shared why her organization has selected Malmö as a platform for Rebranding Africa. Per Tryding, Vice Managing Director of the Malmö Chamber of Commerce served as moderator for the program.
Beverages for the mingle following the presentations were provided by Nya Carnegie Bryggeriet and Pernod Ricard.
