DI Business Summit 2020 LIVE

We have invited a range of exciting guests to the DI Business Summit LIVE to give us their perspective on what the future holds for Denmark once the corona crisis has passed.

At the DI Business Summit LIVE you will also meet businesses for whom the repercussions of corona are especially close to home, but who are also ready to show ambition and take quick and decisive action by embracing the green transition and grasping opportunities to expand into new export ventures.

And it is here you will hear the very latest proposals for how we can tackle the current situation, and what the future will bring in Danish and European politics.

Join the audience, and participate via live chat, when we raise the curtain on the DI Business Summit LIVE with our special guests;
