We had a wonderful time at GOTHIA TOWERS during our Council meeting, staying in Upper House and meeting in Tower 3. We were very impressed by the seamless hospitality we received throughout our stay. Your staff members were very attentive and highly professional and the F&B was just perfect. We were so spoiled.

It was, indeed, such a nice time out for all of us on Friday, having appreciated not only the functionality of your excellent facility: the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, but also the beauty of nature, which is so close to the heart of the city. Thank you so very much.


We really enjoyed your company. Thank you for giving us your time along with “go:teborg&co” members: Annika, Anneli, Anna-Carin and Anthony to name a few.
From what we experienced we can see why demand to meet in Gothenburg is growing and towers 4 and 5 are needed. All the best with the expansion programme!

Thank you again for your hospitality and your friendship.”

Your hospitality knew no bounds. All of us were delighted with the very personal welcome. We were stunned with the comfort and flexibility offered by the venue. Sweden has a reputation for efficiency but the way this is demonstrated across your staff, venue and facilities is quite remarkable. Your creativity and attention to detail marked you out as one of INCON’s best experiences.

International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare 2016

What: Congress with 3400 participants from over 60 countries
When: 12-15 April 2016

“We held the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in Gothenburg from 12-15 April 2016. It was our biggest event in 21 years with 3400 attendees coming together from over 60 countries…
… Feedback from both attendees and our staff was positive. The catering team did a great job providing healthy, filling food for such a large number of people (and of course delicious pastries) – ‘The food in Gothenburg was outstanding – delicious, healthy and PLENTIFUL!’
It was a pleasure to hold the event in Gothenburg and we would happily recommend the city and the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre to other International conferences and hope to bring the International Forum back to Gothenburg in the future.
