Special measures for universal design

We want to accommodate all our guests in the best possible way. Therefore, we have now signed a contract with Universell Utforming AS (Universal Design) owned by the Norwegian Association of the Disabled, the Norwegian Association of the Blind and Hearing Impaired Association. They also are cooperating with the Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association.
We are now in a process where we will review the requirements for universal design, create an action plan and gradually implement various changes.

The goal is to ensure that ALL our guests feel welcome here at the Oslo Congress Centre.

More information to come.
