Organisation and governance

The foundation is financially independent, which means that we have no other owners or investors. Financing operations is thus entirely on our own merit and all profits are reinvested in the venue. The group has annual sales of about 132 million euros and 800 full-time employees (permanent, temporary, and variable hours employees). The workforce increases to about 1.300 employees per month during high season.

The venue has two entrances, Svenska Mässan (the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre) and Gothia Towers. These are also our two main brands.

The organisation is structured into five business areas: Hotel, Food & Beverage, Congress & Event, Exhibition and Meetings Industry and Lifestyle and Exhibition and Meetings Culture, Media, Society.
