We are proud to be hosting this year's summit at one of the most impressive venues in Stockholm: the Elite Hotel Marina Tower.
The Elite Hotel Marina Tower certainly has a pretty long name, but we're so pleased to have secured it as our venue for EuroIA 2017 - with amazing views from the main conference room looking over the water, it's a genuinely stunning stage for the 13th edition of the conference.
Secure your stay at the Elite Hotel Marina Tower with a reserved special rate for EuroIA attendees!
Special rate is available for a limited number of rooms on a first come, first serve basis.
To get from Arlanda Airport to Stockholm
The fastest way is by train. The Arlanda Express Train departs from the lower level of each airport terminal every 15 minutes and arrives at Stockholm Central Station in 20 minutes. Adult tickets normally cost 280 SEK (ca. 28 €) one-way, 540 (ca. 54€) SEK return. Tickets can be bought from kiosks at the platform, online, or on the train for a 100 SEK surcharge.
The cheapest way, still pretty fast and perfectly comfortable is by airport coaches, Flygbussarna, outside the airport. It takes 45 minutes to Stockholm, and it stops close to the Central Station. The cost is 99 SEK (ca. 10 €) for a single ticket and 198 SEK (ca. 20€) for a return ticket. The coaches run on biofuel, so pretty environmentally friendly anyway!
From Stockholm Central to the venue
Take the bus 53 from just outside the Central Station, towards Finnberget. The trip takes 34 minutes, so you'll see quite a bit of Stockholm, but it's the most convenient way to get there. Your stop is called Saltsjöqvarns kaj. A short walk to the hotel - a couple of hundred meters - and then you take an elevator or stairs down to sea level.
There are several options for paying the trip. No cash on the bus, but there are apps or travel cards. A sensible option is perhaps the 72 h travel card for 240 SEK (ca. 24€). Visit the Stockholm public transport company website for info on fares and tickets. Or go to the SL travel center downstairs at the Central Station, where you can get your card.
If you like to come by boat, there is a boat service between the centre of Stockholm and the venue! It's a lovely way to go there. Boats to the venue from the city go from Nybroplan (within 15 minutes walk from the Central station). Boats leave every 20 minutes in general. The trip takes around half an hour, and the boat stops right outside the venue - Nacka Strand. The price is 63 SEK (ca 6,3 €) for a single trip.
If you are planning to devote a few days visiting the city, we prepared some tips about Stockholm for you on this Medium post!
