Exhibition spaces

We have spaces for available for companies or organisations who want to display their products or services for all the participants. The exhibition space is shared with the coffee area and hence provide a good opportunity for you to interact with our participants. In the price for the exhibition stand one participant fee is included, and if you wish to add more participants you can simply add them through the booking dialogue. Exhibition spaces are booked through the regular booking flow. 

Accomodation 

We recommend staying at Scandic Foresta. It is within easy reach of the Lidingö tramway so you can easily get to and from the conference venue. It is also the location of our networking dinner. For those wishing to stay more centrally in Stockholm, Lidingö is very easy to reach with public transport.

Venue 

The conference will be held in an active tramway depot. There will be a special tram running directly from the Ropsten terminus to the venue at the beginning and end of the conference. If you do not wish to travel with this charter, the venue is connected with regular trams and the stop is just a short walk away.  

The covid virus and us

We will follow all directives and guidelines published by the Swedish authorities and we require that you as participants do the same. We are convinced that we will be able to go through with the event in a safe manner, by for example organize the seating with plenty of space, using assigned seats for participants and offer face masks and hand sanitizer. If events are once again banned by the authorities, we will transition to a virtual agenda instead. 

Registration to the event is binding, however if we have to convert to a digital platform you are more than welcome to cancel your registration free of charge as we realise that virtual events do not carry the same benefits as physical in person events.
