Norway is a land for nature lovers, with breathtaking fjords and glaciers, summer’s midnight sun and a sparsely populated wilderness. The country has evolved from a quiet agrarian society to a dynamic, high-tech country with a prominent international position. In addition to being one of the largest oil exporters, it is also regarded as being amongst the leaders in a wide range of industries including telecommunications , aquaculture, hydropower, energy and shipping.
More recently, tourism has evolved as one of Norway’s fastest growing industries, the Norwegian Fjords have been rated as The World’s Best Travel Destination by National Geographic and the UN has rated Norway as The World’s Best place to live!
The city of Stavanger is part of the Greater Stavanger Region, and is situated on a peninsula along the south-west coast of Norway. The city itself is metropolitan and diverse, yet surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery Norway has to offer. The Greater Stavanger Region is the third largest populated area in Norway, with more than 400,000 inhabitants. The city is the energy capital of Norway and most of the oil & gas industry is concentrated here. It is therefore affluent with a strong international orientation.
Stavanger has however managed to preserve its local identity with a charming historical city centre. Everything from hotels and shops, to bars and restaurants are within walking distance. Stavanger is intimate, and with its centre arrayed around a pretty harbour, it is also a picturesque place. Stavanger’s appeal is as much about atmosphere as anything else. It has a vibrant cultural scene and nightlife, with concerts and events, and a great number of fun and welcoming pubs and bars. Most nights the waterfront is buzzing with life, and it is therefore also a central meeting place for our conference guests.
You will find a variety of tempting shops, stroll through “Old Stavanger” with its preserved wooden houses and arts and crafts shops, or enjoy some of the specialist boutiques in one of the many pedestrian streets.
