The congress will take place in Uppsala Konsert & Kongress (UKK). This is a new modern concert and congress hall, with futuristic architecture, only five minutes walk from the Travel Center which is a new addition to the cultural life of the city.
UKK is one of Scandinavia’s most appreciated organizations that organize and provide accommodation for fairs, conferences and major cultural events. All meetings, plenary and parallel sessions will be organized in the congress center. Lunch and coffee/tea breaks will be held in the exhibition area. The bar on the sixth floor offers a spectacular view of the city and landmarks such as the Cathedral and the Castle.
Nordic Swan Eco-label
Uppsala Konsert & Kongress is the first venue in Uppsala that has been certified to have the Nordic Swan Eco-label, which means that it meets the Swan’s ambitious criteria. The certification requires a holistic view of the environment in everything from local produce to smart energy use. The Swan label is given to venues that have environmentally adapted their entire operation, which means that they can offer organic, ECO-labeled and locally produced food, that the supplies and cleaning products used are environmentally friendly, that trash is sorted for recycling and that they use environmentally-labeled electricity. Constantly working to reduce their environmental impact is also included.
