The Annual General Meeting in Clas Ohlson AB is the largest in Sweden. On Saturday 10 September some 1,400 people gathered at Clas Ohlson’s distribution center in Insjön, Sweden.
According to tradition Clas Ohlson held the Annual General Meeting at the distribution center in Insjön, Sweden. Before the meeting began, visitors also had the opportunity to visit an exhibition where selected new products were displayed and demonstrated.
