Experience Gothenburg safely during the pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic affects travelling, accommodation, and other activities in Sweden. Thanks to rapid innovation and efforts from the meeting industry, Gothenburg has undertaken measures to ensure safe conferences. Gothenburg Convention Bureau is in close contact with the hotels and meeting venues and we would be delighted to hear from you.

From October 29, there are local Covid-19 recommendations in Gothenburg.

The public is recommended to:
Avoid indoor environments like shops, shopping centres, museums, libraries, swimming facilities and gyms. Grocery stores and pharmacies are not included.

Avoid participating in meetings, concerts, shows and sports events.

Avoid physical contact with people from another household. This includes arranging or participating in parties or similar social events.

A safe place to meet

Regardless of the size of the gathering, it is recommended to keep distance, avoid crowding and enable good hygiene. Read more in Visita’s recommendations for safe conferences. 

Gothenburg’s meeting facilities have high priorities on hygiene and safety and have taken a number of measures to enable a safe environment to meet. Examples are distance markings, actions to reduce crowding in conference rooms and meeting spaces, offering more opportunities to wash hands and/or providing hand sanitizers.
In the same way, the hotels in Gothenburg have taken measures in order to ensure a safe stay, providing alternative check-in/check-out procedures as well as special breakfast and cleaning arrangements. In the publication Safe to visit, Visita – the Swedish hospitality industry, outlines measures to prevent the spread of infection in restaurants, campsites and hotels.
