World of Volvo opens for meeting and event booking - "a unique meeting experience"

World of Volvo welcomes its first visitors in spring 2024, but for companies who want to treat their employees to a state-of-the-art conference or event experience, booking is already possible. With space for up to 1.100 people, Gothenburg's new meeting place can accommodate companies of all sizes for gatherings in unique facilities with impressive views. Götaplatsgruppen, the renowned restaurant owner, will serve high quality food and the Volvo companies will offer an exclusive access to selected speakers. The interactive Volvo exhibition is included for all conference participants.

World of Volvo will be a creative meeting place that offers our visitors a unique experience and contributes to new perspectives, says Magnus Wrahme, CEO of World of Volvo.

Construction of Gothenburg's new landmark and meeting place, World of Volvo, is currently in full swing, but conferences, events or other types of gatherings can already be booked. Located on the building's fifth, and highest floor, seven conference rooms will offer an inspiring setting with stunning interior design and adjoining lounges. The rooms, all given natural-sounding names such as "Rocks", "Cliffs" and "Fields", are adapted for different types of gatherings and have all been equipped with the latest technology. Outside the rooms, there are areas for mingle, creative workshops or break-out sessions. There is also the possibility to rent the World of Volvo broadcast studio, "Streams", to organise various digital events such as panel discussions or live podcasts.

– We want to offer something that suits everyone. For large occasions customers will be able to book the event hall on the ground floor, which can accommodate over 1000 people, or rent the entire World of Volvo, including staff. There are great possibilities and few limitations," says Magnus Wrahme, and continues:

– When you choose to hold your event, conference or congress with us, you get a vibrant place with activities, life and movement for free. We want to create an environment that inspires and engages and a place you want to come back to.

Affordable, high-class experience
All food at World of Volvo will be prepared by the well-known Götaplatsgruppen and served in a variety of alternative arrangements and combinations on different floors. Götaplatsgruppen will offer an exciting new food concept with conference packages that are scalable to suit different types of events. Curious conference participants will enjoy free entry to the interactive exhibition, taking them on a journey from the past to the present, and into the future. In addition, all companies will have the opportunity to book various team building activities and inspiring speakers from Volvo for tailor-made lectures.

– It will be an excellent place to organise a conference or other type of meeting experience. Everything we provide will be of the highest quality, at the same time, we will make sure that our offer is affordable for smaller companies and organisations, says Magnus Wrahme before he concludes:

– We have already started to receive bookings and are noticing a very high interest, but there is still plenty of room and we look forward to hearing from more people who want to arrange a unique gathering in the heart of Gothenburg.
