Thousands travel every two years to Stockholm, Sweden to see the latest products and innovations, network, attend seminars and connect with new suppliers. The trade fair is based out of Stockholmsmässan and runs for three days towards the end of April.

Who Are You Going to Meet?
Because Nordbygg is primarily focused on the Nordic region, the majority of exhibitors and trade visitors are from Scandinavia and the Baltic states with the rest of Europe falling behind. Almost 90% of all visitors are Swedish Nationals and 44% travelled from around Lake Mälaren. That’s giving you an ample idea as to where you can best penetrate Sweden as a market.
The profile of international visitors covers Finland, Norway, Denmark, Estonia and Lithuania as the countries with the most representation. Nordbygg pulls in professionals working in different areas of construction. There’s skilled tradespeople, management, project management, clients and purchases, production, operations and maintenance. Around 82% of trade visitors have purchasing power in some capacity.
Additional Value of Attending
Exciting news for Nordbygg 2024 attendees. Organisers are creating a new specialised area that is entirely dedicated to photovoltaic technology. This development comes after a significant increase in interest in sustainable and locally produced energy in Europe due to the current energy crisis. Photovoltaic energy has emerged as a leading contender for the energy source of the future, and Sweden has officially entered the technological race to utilise the most of the solar potential available.
In previous editions, we’ve seen several solar tech companies showcasing innovations already. A trend that’s expected to continue for upcoming editions as the market expands and new players enter the field. The new area will highlight groundbreaking work related to combating the effects of climate change, supporting sustainability and achieving smart energy consumption in Sweden.
There are constant little improvements being made in the efficiency and effectiveness of solar panels, and innovations in building-integrated solar panels that can replace construction products and produce electricity at the same time are also on the horizon. Another rapidly developing technology is the management of electricity production and battery charging to support the electric mains and use electricity more cleverly. Innovations in measuring techniques and how companies sell electricity to each other are also an increasing trend.
The other major addition to the fair’s format is the new Sustainable Material Stage, which is where visitors will discover the high-tech world of sustainable materials, circular building design and the next generation of recycled materials. There’s been a growing need for life cycle analyses and a drastic shift away from how manufacturing and production are currently run.
One of the partners for this new initiative is the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, which emphasises the importance of knowledge exchange and networking at the fair. Multiple certification systems exist for buildings, with significant differences in scope and demands, and Svanen is one such certification system.
The Outlook for 2024
Excitement is already building for Nordbygg 2024 after the successful return of the event in 2022. Previous attendees are eagerly anticipating the upcoming fair, which promises to once again be the go-to platform for business meetings, networking, and knowledge transfer.
The 2022 fair saw discussions and presentations on important topics such as digitalisation, climate declarations, fossil-free energy, and new innovative materials. According to Lina Hann, the new Head of Nordbygg, the focus of the 2024 fair will continue these conversations and follow up on new developments. Currently, organisers predict that the upcoming edition will maintain the same attendance numbers and even reach a bigger audience.
