Groups visiting Stockholm find a distinctive mix of old and new.

Stockholm is a welcoming city that combines the charm of Old World design with modern style and the kind of efficient, well-organized infrastructure that groups need for successful meetings. It is also highly desirable for groups interested in environmental stewardship.

Practical, sustainable

Planners’ and attendees’ practical considerations are easily covered in Stockholm. With direct flight connections from
all over the world, it’s quick and easy to reach. It’s served by several air carriers from the east and west coasts of the United States, and is just a little more than a two-hour flight from major European cities like London and Paris.

Stockholm is the first-ever winner of the European Green Capital award and has adopted a unique approach to sustainability; every aspect of environmental, economic and social impact is part of the equation.

Hotels

Stockholm offers 30,000 hotel rooms, and many of the city’s hotels are close to meeting venues and some of the city’s most popular attractions. Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel is located next to the Waterfront Congress Centre, convenient to the area’s top attractions. The classic Grand Hotel Stockholm has been the choice of celebrities and others who live in style since 1874. Scandic Hotels is one of Scandinavia’s leading hotel companies and has been named to the Sustainable Brands Index in a survey of 9,000 consumers. Situated in the heart of Stockholm’s central business district, the Sheraton Hotel Stockholm is close to the shopping and to sightseeing in picturesque Old Town and City Hall.

Meeting venues

Stockholm has a generous selection of modern, flexible conference venues. Most of the city’s meeting places are reachable within ten minutes. Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre is he city’s most versatile large-scale venue accommodates smaller meetings or events for up to 3,000 and features world-class energy solutions. Brewery Conference Center (Munchenbryggeriet) was originally a brewery that began operations in 1857.
