Kick-off 2018

5. February 2018

Austrian business community gathered to start promising 2018 at Advantage Austria´s hub in Sweden 

Near 200 friends and acquaintances gathered to kick of the 72. year Advantage Austria is operating its hub in Stockholm. Up to date this was the largest get-togethers of the Austrian-Swedish business community.  

A true hero of excellent bilateral business relations, Gunnar Andersson, was the star of the evening. Already 1976 he introduced Austrian battery maker Banner to the Swedish market and was their enthusiastic advocate throughout his entire career. His tireless efforts for good bilateral relation as well as his work as honorary consul general for the Republic of Austria have earned him numerous awards throughout the years. This time it was up to Commercial Counsellor Albrecht Zimburg and the Austrian-Swedish business community to say thanks and give him a big round of applause.  

Thus, once more Albrecht Zimburg and his passionate team proved to be „incredibly welcoming“. The guests enjoyed finely prepared specialties from an Austrian chef - like ever popular Wiener Schnitzel, irresistible samples of typical Austrian strudel and the best of Austrian wines. A Swedish style quiz was yet one more of the evening´s highlights. As one of the quiz questions revealed, Advantage Austria’s offices in Stockholm is since August 2017 also responsible for the Austrian Finnish business relations – besides the Norwegian and Swedish markets. 

Thank you all for joining us.
