Activity Partner

The so-called “FBD Activity Partners” use the Fehmarnbelt Days to pursue their own activities within the context of the joint FBD forum. This results in an enhanced visibility of their specific activity and extends the sphere of influence beyond the usual target group. Accordingly, this is the perfect opportunity to obtain the attention of people from different sectors and a varying background.


Right from the beginn at the first joint conference day of the FBD Organizers, The FBD Exhibitors use the forum of the Fehmarnbelt Days 2018 at Clarion Hotel & Congress Malmö Live in Malmö to present their projects, businesses, initiatives or networks at the Networking Village. Thereby, they will address stakeholders and decision-makers from politics, science and business as well as the interested public.

Supporting Sponsor

Taking place for the fourth time, after 2012 in Hamburg/Lübeck, 2014 in Copenhagen and 2016 in Hamburg again, the Fehmarnbelt Days provide a now established cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary platform. Stakeholders from the emerging Fehmarnbelt Region and beyond have a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences as well as to discuss key issues and cross-border collaborations. The two-day event aims at connecting diverse themes from business, science and society.
It is an excellent opportunity to present yourself as a sponsor.
