European Business Leaders’ Convention ry (EBLC)

Founded in 2002, The European Business Leaders’ Convention (EBLC) and its annual Northern Light Summit is a forum where top business leaders, experts and politicians can exchange views on European politics and economics in an informal setting.
From the beginning, the aim has been to deepen decision makers’ understanding on the most crucial issues affecting European companies and the future of Europe as a whole.

The EBLC conference is a collaboration project with Nordic West Office Oy.
Nordic West Office Oy is a global affairs consultancy, think tank and a gateway to the US markets.

Our mission is to help Nordic companies tackle political, economic and technological uncertainty, and to give Nordic (and like-minded companies) a voice in Nordic, European and global debates.
We provide tailored analysis and monitoring services of key international developments and weak signals. We also produce reports on topical themes together with our clients.
