Exclusive 5-course Dinner & Norwegian Business Awards 2019 Ceremony

Norwegian Business Awards 2019
Date: Thursday, March 28
Time: 18:00 – 23:00
Venue: Restaurant Gloria (Müürivahe 2, Tallinn)

NECC is glad to announce the Norwegian Business Awards in two categories – for growth and for innovation.

Innovation is almost always using old trends/ideas in a new way and fashion on 2019 is very much inspired by 1930’s style so – prepare for a real 1930’s vs 2019 party!

Evening programme:
18:00 Gathering begins (champagne and networking)
18:30 Greetings by Norwegian and Estonian Ambassadors
18:45 Norwegian Business Awards 2019 Ceremony
19:00 5-course Gala Dinner, Live Music and Amusement begins

The evening’s Toastmaster is Mart Sander.

Mart Sander is a musician, filmmaker and author of international renown. He has many ensembles and orchestras, performing swing music from the 1930s.


Live swing music by Mart Sander and Trio Titoks

Mart has recently joined forces with Trio Titoks, an ensemble of young virtuoso musicians (Robert Nõmmann, Kristjan Rudanovski, Jaanis Kill) and together they will bring you the best of mellow and hot swing repertoire.

Our 5-course menu is a mix of French and New Nordic cuisine prepared by Legendary Chef Mr Demjanov. 

Mr Demjanov managed to bring the most prestigious culinary competition Bocuse d’Or to Estonia on 2020.


“Estonia impressed us by uniquely combining a vibrant modern culinary scene with traditional know,” said Florent Suplisson, the director of Bocuse d’Or 

Mr Demjanov has superb connection with Norwegians (who are often in Bocuse d’Or TOP3 since 1991): http://www.bocusedor.com/winners

The Gala Dinner will take place at the World’s Best Luxury Restaurant Winner 2018 – Restaurant Gloria (Müürivahe 2, Tallinn).

In 1937 a restaurant was built into the mediaeval city wall of Tallinn. It has been active ever since, an oasis of classic luxury in the rapidly changing world. You sense it the moment you step through the doors and our maître d’hôtel leads you up the grand stairs to the first floor.

The lush interior is matched by the food. Gloria is the stronghold of French cuisine in Estonia. There’s a touch of New Nordic Cuisine to it though – we use best local ingredients, fresh from a forest, farm and waters. That reflects in the changing of the seasons in the meals we make. 

Norwegian Business Awards

Norwegian Business Awards (NBA) is brought to life by Norwegian-Estonian Chamber of Commerce to bring out and acknowledge the Estonian companies that have succeeded in innovating or growing their business, especially in cooperation with Norway.

Excellence in Innovation Award recognizes an Estonian established company that, through innovation, has challenged the conventional thinking on their market or industry, and seen positive commercial outcome as a result. The innovation could, for example, be in product design/development, manufacturing process, working practice, distribution logic or customer service.

Excellence in Growth Award will be given to an Estonian business that shows excellence in extensive growth and evidence of a sustained annual growth of 10 % or more during the last 3 years. Growth driven by increased export activities will be seen as an advantage, especially if it can be linked to bilateral trade between Estonia and Norway.
