Due to the ongoing pandemic, it is important that event organisers are aware of any rules regarding social distance and the number of participants allowed. Please note that these rules can change at short notice.
The number of guests that are allowed at an event depends on the type of event. In all cases, it must be possible to keep a distance of 1 metre between all attendees. The latest information related to events and gatherings is available at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health's website.
The Norwegian Hospitality Association (NHO Reiseliv) has developed guidelines for hotels and venues in conjunction with guidelines from the Norwegian government and health authorities. Visit NHO Reiseliv's website to download specific information about infection control measures for the following segments:
Here is a summary of the measurements:
Many of the hotel chains have implemented safety measures for meetings and conferences. See what measures Thon Hotels has put in place, for example.
The infection control measures for hotels and other accommodation establishments are based on three general recommendations:
Reduced contact between persons
People with symptoms should be placed in isolation / quarantine
By implementing increased measures to prevent transmission of COVID-19, hotels and accommodation establishments should be able to keep open and welcome guests and employees. You can see the full guidelines here (Norwegian only).
If you are experiencing symptoms like fever, sore throat, chest pain and breathing difficulties, please stay in your hotel room and contact guest service by telephone or call the 24-hour Norwegian medical service at 116 117 for guidance and assistance.
We hope that the MICE industry will get back to normal in the near future. In the meantime, you can always start making plans for your coming Norwegian event!
