Europe’s largest and most heart-of-the-city meeting place


Welcome to our meeting place!

Every year, around 1.5 million people from all over the world choose to visit the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre to meet, eat and stay and develop business, products or ideas. We offer everything from hotels, shops, theatres, spas and restaurants to exhibition halls and various types of meeting arenas. Everything under one roof.

When you visit us, you also visit Gothenburg. Our location, in the heart of the city, gives you walking distance to a rich offering of culture, amusement and restaurants. We work closely with all the city’s sectors to select the best that Gothenburg has to offer and to further develop the city as a venue for events. Our vision is to become Europe’s most attractive venue by offering the best total experience.

Whether you visit us on business, for a trade fair, meeting or congress, for the pleasure of enjoying a spectacular show, to enjoy the pleasures of the table or for a quiet stay with your nearest and dearest, we hope that the result will be the same: a memorable experience that will bring you back to us.

I wish you a warm welcome!
