Stockholm et Helsinki
The next preparatory trip for the 18th Paris-North Cape Rally, at the beginning of December, will be to Stockholm et Helsinki, where we will be negotiating sponsorship deals with Swedish and Finnish media companies and businesses. We are also hoping to obtain permission to organise a press conference in an unusual corner of Finland’s capital in the spring of 2017. Having had our eye on this tiny island for several years, we felt that Cap Nord Organisation’s 30th anniversary was the ideal occasion to try and get there!
Another of the trip’s aims is to determine whether we will be able to hold an outdoor photo exhibitionon the Esplanadi, our official arrival , point in the city, near the market square, opposite the presidential palace and across from the magnificent Viking Line ferry.
Our arrival will be part of an event hosted, in Finnish and in English (with a few words in French), by the Finnish TV star Markku Veijalainen, who has been a friend of PNC’s organiser since 1993.
