Oslo has emerged as a dynamic capital over the last decade, with talented innovators reshaping everything from local cuisine to cityscapes. Still, it remains a gem unknown to many. Beat the hordes and treat your delegates to what’s still a cutting-edge destination off the beaten track


... a city for all seasons, where nature’s always close

Nature is always close in Oslo, with forest-covered hills looking over the city and venues and attractions lined up along the Oslo fjord. Each season comes with a selection of unique experiences, like those bright summer nights, or the elusive northern lights on clear winter skies. 


... not as expensive as you’d think

Prices in Oslo may seem on the high side, but you do get great value for your money. The quality of services is high, and hotel prices include amenities such as buffet-style breakfast and free Wi-Fi. The recent weakening of the Norwegian crown has made Oslo even more affordable.


... an experienced host

Oslo hosts about 50 % of Norway’s total shares of international meetings. The city boasts venues that range from large traditional conference centres to one-of-a-kind spots that make your meeting unlike any other. Top-notch professional organizers are ready to give you a hand.
