As always, safety and health is our top priority and we follow the recommendations from Swedish authorities. On 1 July 2021, trade fairs and exhibitions were given their own category in the Swedish Restriction Ordinance (Restriktionsförordningen 2021: 8) based on our ability to implement sufficient infection control measures. Exhibition activities are therefore not covered by the current proposal for vaccination certificates announced by the Government on November 17th.
We have an ongoing dialogue with the relevant authorities, as it is currently not clear how trade fairs and exhibitions will be affected by the current proposal. Information is expected from the Swedish Public Health Agency shortly.
Other operations at The Swedish Exhibition Center and Gothia Towers such as conferences, meetings, hotels and restaurants are currently not affected. / November 19th 2021
Since August 2021 we have been a Covid-19 certified facility. Certification is carried out by the Safe Asset Group in accordance with an international seal of quality developed to certify many trade fair facilities and shopping centres around Europe.
Naturally, we follow the authorities’ recommendations and regulations concerning Covid-19. We also follow the Swedish tourist industry’s ‘Safe to visit’ guidelines.
We’ve implemented measures to ensure your safety as a visitor and customer at our hotels, spa and restaurants and in our meeting and conference rooms.
On September 29, the restrictions on attendance numbers at public gatherings and public events, as well as the maximum number of people at private gatherings, were removed. The restrictions for restaurants were also lifted.
The health and safety of our visitors and employees is always our highest priority and we continuously adapt our meeting place to current needs. We also encourage all our visitors to continue to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety and well-being.
Help us keep our venues safe for everyone:
- Stay home if you are feeling unwell.
- Regularly wash your hands and use hand sanitiser.
- Sneeze into your inner elbow.
We’ve made it easy for you to keep your distance as a guest and visitor at our venue. You will find social distance floor markers in the lobby, conference spaces, spa and restaurants. Clear signs encourage all visitors to be considerate; our staff can be of assistance should someone need a reminder.
Doing the right thing should be easy. That is why you’ll find hand sanitiser and clear signs reminding everyone of the importance of proper hand hygiene at all entrances, reception desks, dining areas and conference rooms. We have fine-tuned our cleaning routines, paying extra attention to high-risk areas such as reception desks, dining areas, banisters, lift buttons and lavatories.
We serve food and drinks in safe surroundings in accordance with applicable restrictions.
Safe meetings, conferences and exhibitions
We follow the current guidelines on larger gatherings to ensure the meetings and conferences we organise are safe. Our knowledge and size guarantee your safety during meetings. All furniture is arranged in accordance with current regulations.
