Due to strike in the hotel sector we are unfortunately forced to postpone the Nordic conference.
Our conference venue NOVA is affected by the strike in the hotel sector, but as late as yesterday they assured us that the strike would not affect the conference. However, a couple of hours ago we got contra message from NOVA that they are not able to host the conference next week.
We have been working for alternative solutions, but have not succeeded to find an alternative conference venue nor hotels on such short notice. Several conference hotels are in strike, and no one of the remaining were able to host a conference of 120 participants with our need for group rooms.
For cancelling hotel rooms booked through our registration portal, contact Marit Opøien at Via Egencia Marit.Opoien@viaegencia.com, otherwise you might be charged for the rooms.
If you have other arrangements, please contact the respective hotels.
Your participant fee and dinner will be refunded.
To ensure that everyone gets this message it is important that you confirm by replying to this e-mail immediately upon receipt of this message.
We are very sorry for this, and hope to find an alternative date later this year to arrange the conference. We apologize for all inconvenience this might cause you.
