Place Branding at the Polar Circle with Julian Stubbs

Press Release   •   Dec 04, 2013 10:01 CET

Julian Stubbs will be giving a speech on Place Branding at the up coming Akademi Norr Seminar on Internationalization and Attractiveness. The seminar takes place in Arjeplog, Norrbotten County, Sweden, on the 5th and 6th December. Arjeplog sits within Swedish lapland. 

Akademi Norr is a cross-border cooperation among 12 northern Swedish municipalities from four counties. 

Julian Stubbs said 'It will be a fascinating place to visit so close to the polar circle during December, I'm really looking forward to it.' He continued 'All places and destinations need to find their own relevance and potential attractiveness if they are to survive in this globalised world. As one place markets itself everywhere else has to.'
