Join us on November 3 at 15.00 (EET) for a webinar dedicated to discussing the current trends in the construction industry in the Netherlands. Learn more about the circular economy and ways how the circular approach can be applied to the construction sector. You will also find out about the benefits and opportunities that the use of sustainable solutions can bring to your construction business and how that, in light of the rising climate change concerns, has already helped companies grow in the Dutch and Latvian markets.

The second part of the event will be devoted to a round of individual B2B meetings between Latvian and Dutch companies for building connections and discussing further cooperation possibilities. The B2B event will last for up to 2 hours, depending on the number of participants, with each individual company meeting lasting about 10 minutes.

We kindly invite to participate:

Dutch and Latvian companies who have introduced or wish to implement the principles of circular economy in their production process.

For the B2B event, we invite Dutch building companies realizing small or large construction projects and looking for new Latvian suppliers (including wood frame and module manufacture suppliers), real estate and project developers, woningcorporaties (companies managing and building residential properties). Also invited are architects, engineers, municipal representatives, urban planners, smart city experts, and executers from both countries.
