About us

Always prepared for new challenges!

Since 1987, Congress-Conference has made it easier to organize events, congresses and conferences in Norway.

We provide project management for congresses and conferences, with everything from marketing the event on social media, financial management, sale of sponsorships and exhibition, abstract handling, registration and accommodation for delegates, to the organization of the congress itself. Our main goal is that our clients can concentrate solely on being the host of the event and we will take care of the rest. Your needs – our Responsibility!

We possess extensive experience with handling of congresses of all types and scale. Every year we plan and execute more than 50 major and minor events for medical and other scientific associations, universities, ministries and governmental agencies, as well as the private sector.

Congress-Conference has been a proud member of IAPCO (International association of Professional Congress organizers) since 1990, being the longest lasting member in Norway.
Congress-Conference handles some of the largest scientific congresses in Norway. We were trusted by the organization of these congresses because we throughout the years, has shown that we can handle large, complex events with the greatest precision and results.

Congresses & Conferences

Congress-Conference is the oldest PCO in Norway, with strong ties to the international PCO environment. A large proportion of our events are medical and scientific congresses organized by universities, medical associations or government agencies.

[showhide type=”kongresser” more_text=”Read more” less_text=””]

 

These are often larger events, and could be either international, regional or national Conferences with several parallel sessions in addition to plenary lectures. They are often held on a regular basis - every year, every other year, every four years etc, and shift locations every time.  Congress-Conference can help with everything from bidding for the Conference to executing it.

Meetings & Training Courses

Typically smaller measured in size, but as important to us as a customer. These are often repeating, on an annual or biannual basis, and can change both topic and location. Congress-Conference supports the conference committee with the planning and execution of the event.

[showhide type=”moter” more_text=”Read more” less_text=””]

For several of our Meeting and Training Courses clients, we have been their PCO for a long periode of time.  This means that we do not only know the organization and board members well, but also the participants and their preferences.

Anniversaries, Corporate Events and Product Launches

Large or small, anniversaries, events and product launches are important happenings for companies, organizations and associations. At Congress-Conference we take pride in assisting and making such occasions a success.

[showhide type=”jubileer” more_text=”Read more” less_text=””]

At anniversaries, events or product launches achievements will be summarized, and new plans and strategies presented and set into motion for the future. Congress-Conference has been responsible for a number of such events of different magnitudes. We will ensure that your event will be a success so that owners, boards members, managers and employees all will be proud of being a part of your organization.
