Norway - the major event destination

There are a number of important factors when choosing a place for a major event, and Norway has proven time and time again that it provides the best in locations, logistics, creativity, infrastructure – and results.

Companies and organizations invest substantial time and effort in planning and staging a successful event. Whether it is an annual event, a corporate kick-off, a professional meeting or seminar, or any other variation, one key to success is coordination on the local level – on-site support – that your company or organization can count on to stage an event on time, within budgets, and make it one to remember.

Norway is known for expertise in planning, this having been shown time and time again in major events of all types: sports, cultural, professional, or political. What has been Norway’s “recipe” for these ongoing successes?

Communication, cooperation, and professionalism is at the core of this consistent performance – with factors that include alliances between the venue, hotels and the city infrastructure; the best facilities and their operative environment; the optimal location for sponsors to promote their corporate activities through advertising and hospitality events; direct support of the event by PCOs (professional congress organizers); and not in the least, “top notch” creative event development, accommodation, transportation, security, food service, and a myriad of other activities.

Here in Norway, there are a wide range of destinations for events of all sizes, working closely to establish and maintain coordinated PR and marketing efforts directed towards the international environment; updating relevant and effective use of websites and printed material; and communication that this country is an attractive destination for all parties involved in a major event – that the event will be “more than just an event”.

The following pages provide just a taste of the cities and their venues that make Norway “the major event destination”.
