Media & VIP Opening Ceremony


As NordArt receives more attention worldwide, the number of audiences attending the opening ceremony each year has also increased. At its peak, the ceremony hosts more than 4000 audiences. This put pressure on the security, and especially those provides protection to guests that have special requirements. Therefore, NordArt has launched the Media & VIP pre-Exhibiiton Opening Ceremony in 2016. Unlike the one opens to public and held in an outdoor sculpture plaza, the pre-Exhibition Opening Ceremony takes place at the indoor No.2 exhibition hall. All attending guests will receive a letter of invitation and participate with their real name. The number of guests is between 400 to 600. The Ceremony has three sections: guest speeches, expert tours, dinner and cocktail reception. The speakers are usually the investor, representative from the country of focus (usually the country’s ambassador), and NordArt Prize winning artists.
