The 2016 Folkemøde saw record crowds and record number of registered events.
Yet the greatness of Folkemødet isn’t captured by the number of people or events, but has more to do with all the informal meetings and discussions that take place in between the formal events and panel discussions.
Folkemødet is very much a meeting for the broad public - but it is also a meeting of the policy professionals; the ministers and members of Folketinget, the Regional Councils and Municipalities as well as heads of public affairs or communications as well as their CEO’s from a large segment of corporate Denmark - not to mention all the organizations, spanning from the smallest single-issue one-man operations to giants like the trade unions, DI (Confederation of Danish Industries) and the Cancer Society.
That’s why AmCham and so many of our members were actively involved in this year’s meeting. More than 40 member companies organized or participated in events - many in partnerships with other companies, organizations or even political parties - and other members were there to listen, discuss, learn, network or just hang out.
For those of our members who haven’t tried it before, we can only encourage you to ‘take the plunge’ and engage. You don’t need to dive in at the deep end at once, but can do like we have done in AmCham and gradually increase your level of participation from year to year.
The AmCham Secretariat is ready to give you whatever advice we can. Give us a call - we’re always keen to hear about your plans and issues - and perhaps we can help you avoid some of the “Rookie mistakes” that we’ve all tried….
