The Norwegian Building Meeting:

BYGG REIS DEG AS: The country's largest mainland industry meets at "the most important meeting place of the year".

Bygg Reis Deg AS

For several years, Medvind has developed this meeting place for our client Bygg Reis Deg AS. The theme in 2019 was sustainability and digitalisation. In order to bring together an entire industry we had to think big.. That's why the name of the biggest change in history was just that – Think Big!

This was a memorable experience for 250 participants, at the Norwegian Trade Fair. We marked a journey in bulding and construction, from 1930 to 2030, together with important voices: David Zahle, partner in the Danish star architects BIG Architects, Minister of Business Torbjørn Røde Isaksen, Idar Kreutzer from Finans Norway, Bjørn Haugland from the climate network Skift Norway, Jon Sandnes from the Norwegian Building Industry Association, Hilde Tonne from Rambøll and Gunnar Jenssen from Sintef VR-lab. In addition, Mali Hole Skogen from IKT-Norway and Hanne Thornam from EY, and many top managers from the construction industry, were on the panel and in the room. Kjetil Thorsen from Snøhetta won the Building Industry’s Honorary Award.
Extreme artist Eskil Rønningsbakken and friends contributed to the story, a story about climate goals, digitalisation, jobs, profitability, value creation and the future of one of the country’s most important industries.
