The Hosting City & Conference Venue
Welcome to a city where professionalism, quality and pleasure goes without saying. Gothenburg is truly a world class meeting and event city, easily accessible from around the world. Located on the beautiful west coast of Sweden, Gothenburg is a buzzing city well-experienced in hosting major international meetings. Meeting venues, hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment are all located within convenient walking distance. The city’s spectacular surroundings, closeness to the sea and the stunning archipelago guarantee a whole new meeting experience, far from the traditional big city meetings.
Gothenburg is the only city in Scandinavia with all-inclusive congress facilities in the city centre. Hotels, restaurants, entertainment, parks, theatres and shops are conveniently located within walking distance. A convenience greatly appreciated by organisers and delegates alike as there is only a limited need for transfers. In terms of comfort and technological facilities, the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre is one of the leading centres in Europe. Every year, over one million visitors use the facilities for around 30 trade fairs and hundreds of conferences and congresses, large and small. The opportunities to combine large-scale congresses with exhibitions, posters, seminars, lectures and smaller conferences are practically endless thanks to the versatile interiors.
The first Swedish exhibition was held in Gothenburg in 1918. Since then the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre has continued to develop in close collaboration with the various sectors of trade and industry and is now one of the most effective meeting places in Northern Europe. Attached to the congress centre is also the in-house Gothia Towers hotel which is the largest hotel in Scandinavia.
