NZSBA's Cafe Fika at the Scandinavian Christmas Market 1st Nov
The NZSBA is working on creating an awesome atmosphere at our authentic Scandinavian Cafe - "Fika" at the much-loved Scandinavian Christmas Market at the Danish House on 1 November.  
 
It will be the place to mingle at our tables or lounge in our bean bags with an infamous Karajoz coffee and Line's genuine Danish ryebread / Knækbrød open sandwiches and sweets.  As Derek says... its a place where intelligent and lively debate, good music, food and coffee come together.
 
A number of our NZSBA members will be set up around the cafe scene showcasing their products including event sponsors Volvo and Lego, 
Cult, Day Home, Bungy Pump and Line's Knækbrød, so plenty of activity as well as gorgeous Scandinavian gifts to buy for Christmas.

NZSBA AGM 2015

Intro from James's Presidents report: The quarter century milestone is quite an achievement and it’s an honour to be here and involved. The NZSBA began life back in 1990 as a Swedish Business Association by Hans and Pat Björkland, and later changed to capture the entire Nordic region. Hans sadly passed away in October 2012 but the spirit of what he wanted to achieve is alive and well here at the NZSBA.
