6 Reasons to Host an Event in Bodø

There are many good reasons to both visit Bodø and host your event here. Here are six of them.

1. The light

Bodø is located just above the Arctic Circle and is the city in Norway with the most daylight hours throughout the year. Winter lights and summer lights, midnight sun, northern lights, and all shades in the sky contribute to enhancing the many exciting natural experiences in the region.

2. Location

You can easily and frequently reach Bodø by air, with an international airport connecting the city to major national hubs, making it convenient for participants traveling from different parts of the world. If you’re looking for a different experience, there are also train and boat options available.

3. The Mini Metropolis

Everything is just a short walk away, even the airport. Hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences, culture, and sports events are all just a short stroll away. The surrounding region is called Salten and is also full of experiences that can enhance events and create unforgettable memories.

Modern conference hotels and Stormen Kulturhus enable us to host a wide range of events. Bodø has experienced a significant increase in the number of new hotels, and, notably, we have the fantastic Stormen Konserthus for truly grand occasions.

We offer modern conference facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology, ensuring a seamless and professional experience for both organizers and participants.

5. Cultural city Bodø

Being the European Capital of Culture in 2024 confirms that Bodø is indeed a cultural city!

With a rich cultural scene and an exciting history, there are numerous opportunities for conference participants to explore local museums, art galleries, and historical sites during their visit.

Small and large cultural events throughout the year make the city an exciting place in the evening, and if you’re fortunate, we might also host major international sports events while you’re in town!
