We are proud to announce that the founder of Kahoot!, Johan Brand, is coming to share his knowledge with us. The brilliant minds at Tinkr will share their very best secrets and tools for business development through an excellent workshop. On top of that, the Tromsø-based company Pazzing will share their nastiest failures and top advices.

You will receive useful insights in understanding the potential benefit of making small adjustments to your product and marketing. This event will be valuable for your personal development and business.

The event is all about people. Meeting other creative minds, expanding professional networks, and making new friends. We have added the word «party» to the headline for a reason. The evening’s sparkling dinner will be packed with surprises!

ICE Release Party should be anything but a traditional conference. At this event we encourage you to participate, and not just listen.

Participation is free of charge. We cover your attendance, lunch and dinner. Travel and accommodation is not included.

Practical information:

Detailed programs for each of the locations will be provided shortly. The content will differ slightly between locations to provide every participant with the best possible experience.


The event is hosted by The Norwegian Barents Secretariat and Sør-Varanger Utvikling, the municipality’s development company, as part of the ICE project, aimed at boosting entrepreneurship and innovation in The Barents Region.


Facilitators at all locations will make sure that national guidelines and restrictions are complied with. If you experience respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or decreased general condition, you should not participate at the conference. We also recommend participants, arriving from areas with a high number of covid cases to test themselves before travelling. We assess the Covid-19 situation continuously.
