So now I continue part 2 of the Norway report (part 1 can be found here).
There’re more leisure photos here. Enjoy!
The trade show was also a time to learn and absorb new ideas. The above series of booths is a fantastic marketing concept by a flooring company.
It tells the story of a man who bore a deep hatred against his boss. One night, he killed him in a violent struggle. Can you see the knife on the bed with the red blood stains?
So what has this got to do with flooring, you might ask?
According to the eloquent sales manager, the flooring they sell is hardy and could withstand the impact of the struggle. It is also easy to maintain, and stains (including blood stains) wipe off easily.
Desperate to conceal his crime, the murderer dug a hole beneath the wooden floor.
This engineered wood flooring comes with a click system, which makes it easy for quick assembly and removal. Just what you need when you have a corpse to bury.
It’s controversial and got many tongues wagging at the show. Success!
The organisers also organised a few mini concerts to whip up interest in the general public. This one is by a highly popular contestant at the recent Norway Idol show.
She didn’t win but you can see why she is so popular.
Here’s a view from my hotel room. The row of black buildings in front has 3 restaurants, we tried them all. Food is expensive but quality is uniformly excellent.
This is reindeer steak. Tastes like beef and literally melts in your mouth.
A quick shot in front of the convention centre. You can see the houses dotting the hillside, such a lovely sight and worlds apart from the urban jungle that is Singapore.
A jaunt to the marina where a gorgeous rainbow awaits us.
Captain of his ship, charting the course to higher profits.
Well, that’s all for now. It’s been a wonderful experience, with new friends and contacts made. We’ll certainly be devoting much more time to the Europe market from now on.
Till next time!
