One of Norway’s largest conference and exhibition centres, Stavanger Forum offers 30 meeting rooms and capacity for up to 5,000 delegates. Stavanger Forum has some 15,000 square metres of stand space. The largest plenary hall at Stavanger Forum can be split into three smaller auditoria and can accommodate 864 delegates for a banquet with long tables.
Combined with its 690 square metre indoor plaza, there is plenty of opportunity to stage large and more demanding events within the centre. The Rica Forum Hotel, with 182 rooms, is part of the same complex as the conference centre. It also cooperates with all the other hotels in the region.
Stavanger Forum has five multi-purpose halls on-site. The largest is able to accommodate 5,000 delegates in theatre-style for congresses, whereas others can accommodate 3,000 delegates for concerts and 1,500 for banquets. This helps make Stavanger Forum the perfect venue for a wide range of large events.
Both the conference centre and the halls can be tailored to suit most requirements including small tabletop exhibitions, large international trade fairs, banquets and concerts. Stavanger Forum has its own in-house international professional congress organiser (PCO). Experienced staff serve as advisers, partners and coordinators, helping clients with all practical details before, during and after a congress. Stavanger Forum welcomes other PCOs to utilise the centre for their events.
Stavanger is situated on the edge of the fjords and offers an excellent diversity of outdoor and social activities. As the oil capital of Norway, Stavanger has also assumed a cosmopolitan character.
The food served at Stavanger Forum plays an important part in the overall event and the chefs offer specially tailored menus to meet your budget, wishes and needs. They like to use local ingredients produced close to Stavanger, like salmon from Suldal, lamb from Kvitsøy, tomatoes from Finnøy and strawberries from Fister.

The forum's production department will also give advice and guidance on selecting the right technical equipment to meet your requirements.
