Oslo: Meetings On The Runway

Radisson Blu airport hotels are a great way to meet when on the run or just to make it easier for delegates to meet from all around the world. Two modern meeting hotels directly connected to the international airport make Oslo Gardermoen the perfect meeting venue.

 

With more than 24 million passengers annually and 140 direct routes, Oslo Airport is one of northern Europe’s most important hubs and a natural meeting venue for all of Norway and Scandinavia. With two hotels – both offering direct access to the terminals and a short distance to train and bus transport – it is extremely easy and convenient to conduct meetings at Oslo Gardermoen.

 

The two hotels, Radisson Blu Airport Hotel and Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport, offer a total of 800 rooms and modern meeting facilities in 80 meeting rooms.

 

Effective meetings at the airport

 

“Holding meetings at the airport is popular for many reasons. Firstly, it is very efficient, economical and easy to organize, as all of the participants who fly in save time and money on transport to the city, and they can go straight from the plane to the meeting,” says Jörgen Ljungren, General Manager for both Radisson Blu and Park Inn at Oslo Gardermoen.

 

From the arrival and departure halls of Oslo Airport, it is just a few minutes’ walk to the meeting facilities at the two hotels. “It couldn’t be more efficient. We have guests who arrive by plane in the morning, conduct a number of meetings at our hotels and fly back home right after lunch. Guests with baggage can also check-in for flights before holding their meetings,” says Jörgen Ljungren.

Holding meetings in the airport also has other advantages. For example, it is easier to gather and ensure participants stay for socializing and activities than at a city centre location; and since Radisson Blu Airport Hotel and Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport feature good in-house restaurants, bars and lounge environments, there is no reason to leave the hotels after the meeting.

Two hotels in the same location provides a high degree of flexibility for meeting customers. “Both hotels have well-equipped meeting facilities and engaged employees, which makes it easy for us to tailor the perfect solution for customers – whether you prefer the Experience Meetings concept at Radisson Blu Airport Hotel or the Smart Meetings & Events concept at Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport,” says Jörgen Ljungren.

NEW terminal at OSLO airport

 

Oslo Airport’s Terminal 2, also known as Central Building 2 in Norway, will increase the passenger handling capacity of the airport to 28 million travelers a year. The project was conceptualized in 2007, construction works were 50% completed as of mid-2014 and the new terminal is scheduled to open in April 2017.

 

Our airport hotels are a great way to meet when on the run or just to make it easier for delegates to meet from all around the world. Besides from the two airport hotels in Gardermoen, in the Nordics, we have the newly renovated Radisson Blu Arlandia, Radisson Blu Sky City Arlanda Airport, Radisson Blu Trondheim Airport, Park Inn by Radisson Copenhagen Airport. Wherever you decide to land, all of the hotels offer meeting facilities and top “Yes I Can” service.
