Nordic Business Forum 2023

Creative Technology was honored to deliver technical production and visual design of the large business conference Nordic Business Forum (NBF) 2023. The theme of this year's NBF was "Be:Change" – leadership, innovation, resilience, and AI.

The production scope of the conference was once again very extensive, but thanks to careful system planning and project management, the work days at Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre went smoothly with our team of technology professionals.

Lighting and video programming were carried out in CT’s programming studio in Vantaa before moving to the event venue. This allowed the client to give feedback as the process progressed. This significantly saved time on-site and provided an efficient opportunity to develop the final result in close collaboration with our client, Nordic Business Forum. CT’s visual design unit, Visual45, was responsible for the astonishing lighting design and operating of the event’s main seminar hall.


For the technical setup of the main seminar space, CT provided:

  • Sound system, microphones, intercom – nearly 110 speakers (using the new d&b XSL and SL series)
  • Lighting – appr 750 fixtures
  • Trusses
  • Video control – servers, mixing, speaker support
  • Technical planning for the above systems
  • Video mixing and presentation material operating
  • Visual45 – lighting & video design and operating of the event’s main seminar hall


Nordic Business Forum once again proved to be a world-class conference in terms of content, functionality, and visual look. Thank you to Nordic Business Forum team for the seamless collaboration from planning to execution!
