Two extraordinary hotels make Oslo the perfect place to hold meetings and events. Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel and Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel both offer large and flexible meeting facilities. And the breathtaking views over the city and the beautiful natural surroundings are included for free.
Oslo is a unique place for meetings and events. The city is famous for national treasures like the Royal Castle and Vigelandsparken and for its beautiful natural surroundings. Choosing Oslo as your destination gives you unique opportunities. For example, you could escape for a skiing session! Or what about abseiling from the famous Holmenkollen ski jump? Or going on a sailing trip on the picturesque Oslo Fjord?
Fortunately, two centrally located Radisson Blu hotels in Oslo offer guests the opportunity to enjoy all the attractions in and around Oslo while gathering for meetings and events.
Tallest building in Norway
Soaring 37 stories into the skyline above Oslo, the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel offers captivating views of Oslo and the Oslo Fjord. The hotel is the tallest building in Norway and also the country’s largest hotel. The hotel is set in a convenient location in the heart of the capital’s vibrant commercial district and right next to Oslo
Central Station, offering a wide range of transportation links. Airport transfers are quick and easy with the Airport Express Train.
Both business and leisure travelers appreciate the hotel’s proximity to the Oslo Spektrum Arena, the region’s top venue for world-class entertainment events. And Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel’s modern event
facilities, named the Plaza Panorama, accommodate as many as 1,100 guests. Located on the hotel’s top three floors, the venue spans more than 1,800 square meters and offers sweeping views of Oslo and the nearby fjords.
Ballroom, restaurant and bar
Among the flexible meeting facilities is the Sonja Henie Ballroom, one of the largest banquet and conference venues in Norway. The elegant ballroom had a complete refurbishment in 2009 and is now equipped with state-of-the-art presentation and projection systems, special lighting and sound. With 14 magnificent crystal chandeliers and contemporary design, the Sonja Henie Ballroom offers the perfect setting for any event.
On the 34th floor, 107 meters above the city, is the 34 Restaurant & Bar. Here, guests can choose fresh lobster from the lobster tank or select dishes from the à la carte menu. The bar is the ideal place for pre-dinner cocktails or a late night’s drink with a breathtaking view of the city.
Guests in search of an informal venue will enjoy Galway Bay, the Irish pub on the ground floor, while the Lobby Bar is perfect for light meals or a relaxed coffee while observing the pulsating atmosphere of the hotel lobby.
Separate conference entrance
The Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel is another extraordinary venue and landmark in downtown Oslo, centrally located close to attractions like the Royal Palace and Aker Brygge. The location makes it easy for guests to find their way to the hotel, and with the National Theater train station and an airport bus stop just a few steps away, this is the perfect place to host a meeting or other event.
With more than 40 years of hospitality, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel is one of the most experienced conference facility suppliers in the Norwegian capital. The hotel’s functional and flexible conference and event space can accommodate up to 1,200 people, in total, for all kinds of conferences and events. And a separate conference entrance reveals 2,000 square meters of flexible meeting and exhibition space.
Summit Bar on the 21st floor attracts both locals and tourists. After a long day’s meeting, delegates can relax at one of the bar’s floor to ceiling window tables and enjoy the city and the Oslo Fjord at sunset.
For lunch or dinner, a delicious meal in a relaxing atmosphere is served at the à la carte Enzo restaurant. The head chef composes a new and exciting three-course menu every week, inspired by international and Norwegian flavors, primarily based on seasonal and local ingredients.
Nutrition for maximum focus
Highly trained meetings and events staff members are on hand to help conference hosts and delegates from start to finish at both Radisson Blu Scandinavia and the Radisson Blu Plaza. The Experience Meetings concept by Radisson Blu ensures successful meetings by harmonizing the tangibles, breakout rooms, connectivity and food, with intangibles such as service, satisfaction and sustainability.
An integrated part of the meeting experience at Radisson Blu hotels in Oslo is innovative Nordic cooking and Brain Food, Radisson Blu’s award-winning food and drink solution for memorable meetings.
