For the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Gothia Towers, safety and health for visitors and employees is a top priority and we are naturally following the government’s decision and the authorities’ reccomendations on the corona virus.

Since March 12, 2020, public gatherings and public events with more than 500 participants must not be held in Sweden. On March 27, the Government, on the recommendation of the Public Health Authority, decided to further limit public gatherings and public events from Sunday, March 29. The decision, which is valid until further notice, means that the permitted limit for the number of participants is lowered from 500 to 50 people. The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre Group obviously acts in accordance with this decision in all aspects of our business.

Therefore, as long as the decision is in force, we will not carry out any site events with more than 50 participants. The events that have so far been affected by the current rules, are being intensively worked on to find new opportunities for. Many already have new, fixed dates. For the lates information about our upcoming events, please visit their homepage.

In the light of the current situation, we understand that there may also be questions about future events. We are currently planning to carry out all events that are scheduled this autumn, starting end of August.

Smaller meetings are still conducted with the highest security in accordance with existing rules and recommendations. As before, we continue to monitor the situation closely and in the event of new guidelines, we act in accordance with them. We have good procedures and preparedness in place and will of course inform you promptly if the situation changes.

Below are some of the extra measures we have adopted at our meeting place to date:

  • Signs and instructions on general measures to prevent infection are displayed at our venue.
  • Our public restrooms are being cleaned more frequently
  • Disinfectant and soap are available in all restrooms
  • Service areas with disinfectants are located at entrances
  • We also have trained medical staff available

As of March 25, the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre Group has increased the security in its restaurant environments according to the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s new rules. The additional measures is taken so that visitors can keep a distance between each other in queues, at tables, buffets or bar counters.

Should new guidelines or decisions be issued, we have effective processes and procedures in place.

We have a complex situation with many involved who are affected, and we get many questions about consequences and actions. We will continue to update our website as soon as we can. We kindly ask for your understanding that we may need some time before we can share new information, and provide answers to all the questions that may arise.

If you plan to visit us at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre (Svenska Mässan), please stay at home if you feel ill or if you have recently visited any of the risk areas listed on the website of the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
