This is what previous guests have to say
We would like to thank you for a top-notch fall gathering at your venue last night – 10/10. We have received only positive feedback and our Operations department wishes that everyone offered the same arrangements/service as you did. Please thank the team for an excellent job and have a wonderful day!
NLA invited landscape architects from around the world to the IFLA World Congress COMMON GROUND in Oslo, with events spanning over three days. It was important to have professional venue organisers with whom we could have good dialogue throughout the entire planning stage, as well as a venue that was large enough and with enough conference rooms. We chose Oslo Congress Centre and are very happy with that choice!
It was challenging to plan to register and serve up to 1,500 participants at the same time in the foyer, but thanks to our joint efforts, we managed this in such a way that we received feedback saying the atmosphere was calm and pleasant and the execution was professional.
The venues and technical equipment worked perfectly. The solution with the Speaker Preparation Room was very important in order to guarantee the necessary flow and quality with up to 13 parallel sessions in three sections – and a total of over 250 professional presentations.
The staff served seasonal fresh fruit, biscuits and enough water, coffee and tea around the entire congress centre, which we are also very pleased with.
We have only received positive feedback from our participants, sponsors and partners and gladly share that feedback with you. Thank you so much for excellent good partnership.
Thank you for the fantastic support both before and after the Miljøledelsekonferansen in 2019. Oslo Congress Centre was very quick to reply to all inquiries and gave us a good degree of confidence during the planning stage. The staff was highly professional and it is clear that they have considerable experience handling both large and small requests.
It is also very positive that Oslo Congress Centre shows that it takes sustainability seriously. By offering certified Green Conferences, they have become climate leaders in practice. The chefs served a delicious vegetarian menu with a focus on local ingredients and even encouraged the re-use of glasses and mugs! Additionally, they made several good climate considerations when it comes to waste, plastic, energy and procurement.
We have run out of superlatives and wish to once again express our thanks for a fantastically implemented GRESS banquet. This year’s feedback is yet again exclusively positive.
When it comes to our latest event at Oslo Congress Centre, like in previous years, it was of exceedingly high quality with regard to the food, service and, last but not least, the logistics. These are three key conditions for a successful event.
You demonstrate an incredible amount of professionalism in everything you do, something that is apparent in the finished product.
The food was fantastic and the butter roses on every table were impressive. The dishes that were served to 875 people were delicious. We are impressed. With you as the hosts, we are both proud and humbled organisers thanks to such a fantastic total package.
Over several years, we have held conferences with very happy and satisfied participants. Everything runs very smoothly at your venue, which means the world to us, from the foyer, cloakroom and cleaning to food service, lunch and the technicians. Everything is to our satisfaction and everyone is pleasant and friendly. So, you can give everyone good feedback on a job well done!
We would have had a lot more trouble with the event if you had not been so professional.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! We’ll see you again next year!
Thank you for a job well done!
You deliver on every level, from the site inspection in 2015 to three years of planning and details and five days of rigging and implementation.
The follow-up was excellent, we received assistance from everyone at OKS and the food service has been very good. With 900 participants at the most, we have seen how well the logistics work. They have control of all venue logistics and the technical aspects were dealt with professionally by Frode and his team. The people we worked with during the event, the receptionists and the janitors, were all pleasant, helpful and patient throughout the entire event. We owe you all a big thank you.
Nomiko uses Oslo Congress Centre for its own courses (avfallskurs.no) and as a course and conference organiser for other organisations. Our experiences with Oslo Congress Centre have been that they are professional in every way and that they solve the tasks equally well, whether there are eight or 350 participants at the event.
The participants specifically mentioned the good food. We would also like to mention the pleasant staff, who are competent and do exactly what is agreed. The technical equipment and technicians ensure a proper and safe implementation of sound and video aspects, so that we can focus on content and participants.
The Norwegian Hull Club held its first event at Oslo Congress Centre in the late summer of 2018 and we quickly noticed that they know what they’re doing.
We were interested in a solution-oriented professional event organiser in Oslo, who could take care of all aspects of our three-day event and had large enough venues. We ultimately chose Oslo Congress Centre and we are very pleased with that choice.
The venue was set up with round tables with tablecloths and flowers and the hall was a pleasant place to spend three days. We had a somewhat technically advanced programme and the technical aspects were perfect. Technician Frode was friendly, professional and assertive in finding the right solutions for us.
Our general perception of the staff was that they were professional, skilled and pleasant.
Our domestic as well as foreign guests have also mentioned the excellent food several times. We thank you all for the good pieces of assistance within three days!
Everything went very smoothly when we organised an event at Oslo Congress Centre.
We were very pleased with the table configuration, decoration and how things were done in general. The food was superb and the staff offered brilliant service. All in all, we experienced an especially successful and memorable event.
We would also like to thank your event coordinator for fast and friendly replies and assistance during the planning stage.
Knut, MXData and myself, Micado, were very pleased with the venue, food and facilities. I particularly enjoyed Meeting Room 2 because it was so spacious, equipped with a good projector and had a large tablecloth. I have absolutely no complaints. Professional arrangement.
Nasjonal kompetansetjeneste for aldring og helse has held several courses and conferences at Oslo Congress Centre. We are very pleased with the technical support, venue, food and services in general.
Our courses and conferences span over several academic fields, ranging from specific themes for a single profession to interdisciplinary courses and conferences over the course of two to three days. Our largest event is ‘Demensdagene’, with over 900 participants and which we arrange annually during the first week in December.
No matter the size, the professional and service-minded staff at Oslo Congress Centre makes sure that both our participants and we, the organisers, have a positive experience.
Our contacts at Oslo Congress Centre are very helpful and always facilitate our events to guarantee their success.
Thank you for good cooperation and we look forward to its continuation!
Everything went smoothly, as it always does at your venue. I can safely say that you have the most professional and customer-friendly approach I have ever witnessed. We have not used any other venue since we started using yours.
Thank you for excellent facilitation, lunch and well-organised venues. We look forward to returning to your venue for our next gathering. Thumbs up from all of us at OBOS New Homes.
We were very pleased to have worked with Oslo Congress Centre (OKS) leading to our best conference ever. The best part of the collaboration was the kind, calm and very professional attitude of the OKS staff. The communication was always clear and there was a lot of flexibility. On the other hand, it was also clearly communicated what could not be done which avoided surprises during the conference.
The execution of the OKS staff during the conference was close to flawless. There were even no lines for coffee, food and toilets at peak moments which has always been the case at previous conferences.
The food quality was the best I have experienced in a conference centre for a group of over 1000 people. The OKS managed to serve a hot high quality main course to 1000 people which is very impressive.
The location of the OKS in the very city centre, so close to the train station and the airport train was great benefit to delegates but also in planning the conference.
I highly recommend working with the OKS. The strongest points are the great people, clear communication and the high standard of the food.
