Norway – one of the less expensive meeting destinations!

Norway is a fantastic destination and a very suitable country to host your meetings, incentives and congresses but unfortunately it is too expensive to organise an event in Norway.

This is how many think about Norway as a destination, but that is before they have started to compare prices. The fact is that Norway is one of the less expensive meeting destinations in Europe and provides good value for money. And more and more meeting planners are discovering this.

Norway is wrongly perceived as an expensive country. In a survey by The Guardian from 2010 Norway and Sweden topped the list of European countries the consumers believed to be the most expensive holiday destinations. But when looking at the actual costs of vacationing in Norway, Norway drops to 18th place on the list out of 30 countries. When including flights Norway is down to a 25th place. According to this survey Norway is actually among the cheapest countries to vacation in.

A price comparison report from M&it magazine conducted in May 2013 shows the same. M&it Magazine gathered prices from 19 different convention centres in Europe for a full-day meeting with 1000 delegates, including a two-course lunch with mineral water and two coffee breaks. Oslo Congress Centre was placed as the 5th most price-competitive congress centre in Europe according to this survey. The most expensive alternatives were priced 50 percent more than Oslo Congress Centre.

“This is great news!” says new director of Norway Convention Bureau Frode Aasheim. “We have long known that we are competitive when it comes to prices on meeting rooms, hotels and conference packages but now we also have facts to support us. There are no reasons NOT to book Norway as your next destination!”

The fact is that yes, Norway has expensive alcohol due to taxes set by the government. But on many other areas Norway is perhaps surprisingly price competitive and with excellent hotel and meeting facilities.

Norway provides good value for money and due to its stunning nature and the wide range of possible activities in the nature Norway is a natural choice for your next meeting, incentive, congress or event. Welcome to Norway!
