Welcome to Bergen
Everything you wish for - and a little bit more!
Bergen is an ideal place to organise big as well as small meetings. The city has developed itself into a meetings venue of international stature and accordingly has all the facilities for congresses, conferences and exhibitions. Our conference organisers have all the necessary professionalism, competence and experience to make you feel confident and relaxed.
The people of Bergen are proud of their historical background and determined to learn from it. Bergen has a long tradition as a congress city. The first major assembly took place in 1163 when Magnus Erlingsson was crowned King of Scandinavia. Naturally, Bergen has been playing host ever since, not from a sense of duty but because of the city's genuinely hospitable nature.
Today, Bergen is regarded as an international congress city, with major conferences following one another. This is understandable when you realise how easily accessible Bergen can be. The city has 45 hotels with more than 7,500 rooms and 15,000 beds (in 2017) and every conference facility that one could wish for. The added attraction for conference organisers is the wide selection of activities and excursions that both Bergen and its local surroundings have to offer.
The unique and infectious atmosphere of Bergen plays a decisive role in attracting more and more conferences: Bergen really does have something for everyone!
