About the conference


Stockholm, one of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities, is often termed “the Venice of the North”. The city is built on 14 islands and the visitor is never far from water. This “small town, big city” has something for everyone; international culture of the highest standard, more museums per capita than any other European city, gourmet restaurants, a perfectly preserved medieval “Old Town” to name just a few attractions.
