Feel the difference – go global with Twinkle!

When I walk in the lobby of our hotel or visit the restaurant at breakfast time I meet people from all over the world. Our guests are becoming more and more international and global diversity exists among them. It also reflects the corporate culture and the behavior of modern-day life. People are curious, they have the self-confidence and they want to cross the obstacles to find new opportunities around the world.

Finland needs the versatility of these international people to increase business in the market place and  create new networks. The ability to network is one of the most desirable indicators in today’s business life and, unfortunately, it’s not one of our strengths in Finland. Events and seminars are today’s best way of finding business contacts, meeting people who have the same targets, and  creating new business opportunities. It’s really great that Tredea has built Twinkle to combine these features, which will produce a variety of synergies. But actually, I believe that Twinkle is more than that. Twinkle is a chance to create something new, something fresh and something that has not yet been found. It may also give a new perspective to partners, such as us, to push companies towards new innovations.I am also very confident that networks and the attitude of these international professionals will also create great results. The organizers exceptional enthusiasm and the ability to create a positive atmosphere around this special event will certainly help in achieving the synergy benefits and serves a forum for all TALENTS. It is a pleasure to be a part of this innovation and help these international professionals to reach their targets.

As a global hotel chain and event accommodation partner, Holiday Inn® shares the power of globalization and will support the co-operation between nations. It is also part of our business and now we can spread this spirit even more with this event. It is certainly also a great opportunity for us.

Hope to see you at Twinkle!

In other words, when they are currently fastest growing economic areas, in Africa, Asia or Latin-America, in “Global South”.
