Trondheim - a way of life

Trondheim is a way of life – the perfect city for congresses and conferences with and ideal balance of hotels, venues and restaurants together with a rich cultural life that includes museums, sports, music events and shows.

 The walking distance between all hotels and conference centres provides the ideal “venue of communication” for participants, companions, and others visit the city, and the excellent reputation of the restaurants resounds far beyond the region. In fact, some event organizers even choose Trondheim simply on the basis of the culinary experience that they are sure to find here.

Trondheim’s Exhibition and Conference Centre is the major venue in the city, with capacity for up to 3,000 participants, but smaller venues are also available here in Norway’s first “wireless city”, and participants find that Trondheim lives up to its name as the capital of central Norway – a big village and a small city – both at the same time.

Visit Trondheim
Visit Trondheim is the organization in place to make choosing a venue and arranging an event in this city easy and manageable. Offering assistance in the event bid process that includes help to find the most suitable conference venues and hotel; suggestions for partner programs and social activities; promotional material and DVD; help in organizing site inspections – even making available a invitation letter from the Mayor and the Director of Tourism – Visit Trondheim makes an event organizer and participants feel right at home.

Once Trondheim has been decided upon as a venue for the event, Visit Trondheim is ready to assist in establishing contact with PCOs (Professional Congress Organizer) and event companies; establishing contact with the SAS airline company for an official carrier agreement; providing pictures and texts for brochures and web sites; providing assistance with applications for a free concert in Nidaros Cathedral with the Mayor as host, or a reception in one of the Municipality’s locations; and offering other support that makes the process easier – and more professional.

There are a multitude of things to do in the area for both participants and their companions. The nearby mountains; the fjords; the local galleries, restaurants and music clubs; the well-known Rosenborg Soccer Club and Stadium; or even a winter sleigh ride with horse in the woods – nearly anything is possible in Trondheim.
