Promoted officially for its natural advantages (wilderness, mountain and fjord scenery, eco-pursuits, adventure challenges, Northern Lights, midnight sun, etc.), Norway offers a mix of inspiring destinations (e.g. Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Tromso), cruising opportunities, heritage and culture (Vikings, Hanseatic traders, Sami Laplanders etc.), as well as the advantages of a modern, successful, efficient, and high-tech country.
The capital city of Oslo features over 50 hotels from three- to five-star in standard, can seat 6000 in its Congress Centre (32,000 sq.m. of exhibition space), or 10,000 at Oslo Spektrum, and its top attractions include the Viking Ship Museum, Kon-Tiki Museum, Vigeland Sculpture Park, and Art Gallery. Bergen (over 30 top class hotels) with its Grieghallen International Congress Centre (seating to 2100, exhibition space to 3600 sq.m.+), UNESCO-listed wooden buildings in Bryggen harbour, and large scale Aquarium; and Stavanger (quayside, culinary reputation, wooden houses, conference seating up to 2000), are other key centres. Tromso is the Northern Lights capital and gateway to the Arctic.
Norway is reachable easily using international flights (around 30 airlines serve Oslo), by ferries and cruise ships, and also via international trains. A reputation for hard work and reliability, environmental-sensitivity, intriguing heritage, amazing outdoor activities, and above all, for safety and security, make Norway a natural choice for MICE events, in both senses of the word!
