Conference Dinner

The conference dinner will take place next to the Vasa ship, the world’s only preserved 17th century ship in the most visited museum in Scandinavia. The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm in 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed, the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue.

The Banquet will feature dinner and drinks along with guided tours.

To be noted: since the ship needs certain conditions to be preserved, the temperature in the building is kept to, at most, 20 degrees Celsius.
