An Event Planner's Guide to Stockholm

As a global agency, we know which destinations are right for your event. If you’re considering bringing a group to the Nordics, discover what makes Stockholm an incentive and meeting destination like nowhere else. 

Sweden’s capital provides a stunning backdrop to business events, having been built on a patchwork of 14 islands connected by over 50 bridges. It is the meeting point of culture, media, politics, and economy for Sweden, being its primary financial centre and one of the largest in Scandinavia. Stockholm is one of Europe’s major tech centres hailed as an innovation hub and the host of the annual Nobel Prize ceremonies, one of the world’s largest international events.

There are plenty of opportunities to soak up the city’s culture and art outside of an event agenda, with Stockholm being one of the most crowded museum cities in the world, home to the ABBA Museum and the largest photography exhibition; Fotogfrafiska. The well know photography museum also houses a restaurant, which achieved a Michelin Green Star for its seasonal and plant-based menu. A perfect networking stop for dining overlooking the city. Alternatively, visit the ICEBAR by the iconic ICEHOTEL Sweden and challenge your guests with an ice sculpting workshop or book a scenic canal cruise for an immersive trip.

Known for innovative design and long praised for its sustainability, there is no end to beautiful venues in Sweden and Stockholm offers an eclectic mix of event spaces ranging from the modern and trendy wellness-focused spaces to grand historical locations.

Take Operaterrassen for example, with spaces to accommodate everything from small meetings to 600 person banquets including The Opera Terrace, The Rotunda and The Great Hall. The space is also home to Operakällaren, the Michelin Star Restaurant and member of an association of the world’s finest restaurants, with a grand interior dating back to 1895.

The banquet hall overlooks the river, with a magnificent view of the Palace and Parliament Buildings. Renovated in 2016, it combines modern and elegant features made bespoke for events, meetings and conferences. With an interior environment designed to promote concentration and creativity with natural daylight and the well ‑known Swedish minimalism.
