Back to overview

On May 31 the Swedish Chamber of Commerce was very pleased to organize the annual Swedish Business in Brabant event together with BOM Foreign Investments & Trade, Handelsbanken and Ericsson at their visitor’s center in Rijen.

During the very interesting afternoon program, led by Everth Flores, General Manager Ericsson Telecommunicatie, the impact of IoT on society and businesses was visualized through inspiring presentations and cases presented by Ericsson, Cool Industries, Scania and Camilla van den Boom, Sturmm. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce was especially honored to welcome Honorary Member of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, Clas Ivar Schultz and his wife Gunilla to Ericsson this afternoon. Clas Ivar Schultz has been around since the start of the Chamber back in the sixties of the last century and was for many years active as Chairman. He was also General Manager at Ericsson Telecommunicatie for more than twenty years until the early eighties.

We would like to thank all speakers, sponsors and guests for participating and for making Swedish Business in Brabant to a great success. A big thank to the organizing committee, BOM and Ericsson, for the pleasant collaboration and to Ericsson for excellent hosting.
