We’re planning the event to be an in-person conference. We’ll update this page with information on current health advisories and precautions as we get closer to the event.
We want everyone to feel comfortable and safe at our venue.
As of February 9, 2022, Sweden has reclassified Covid-19 as no longer dangerous to the general society. All significant local event restrictions have been removed. Note, however, that travellers from outside the EEA are still required to show proof of vaccination (or comparable) in order to enter the Sweden.
You will still be required to show proof of vaccination for Covid-19 to gain access to the venue. If you have a Swedish e-legitimation, you can obtain a digital certificate for free at covidbevis.se.
As with previous instances of the Stockholm event, there will be no buffet-style food. Lunch is served in a restaurant on the premises.
You can read up on the current recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten) for more information about international travel to Sweden.
The main airports in Stockholm are Arlanda Airport (served by most international flights) and Bromma Airport (mostly domestic flights and some intra-Scandinavian ones).
From Arlanda, the express train takes about 20 minutes and costs about SEK 300. The airport bus takes 45-60 minutes and costs SEK 140. A regular taxi will set you back about SEK 600, and takes 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. Make sure you get a fixed price.
Skavsta is about two hours by airport bus (SEK 240) from the city. This airport serves only low-cost airlines.
Stockholm is very walkable, accessible and safe. As long as you stay “within the moat” (i.e. central Stockholm), most places are within 30-40 minutes’ walking distance.
Public transport in Stockholm is run by SL. One ticket covers the subway, commuter trains, buses, and even some commuter boats. You can buy day-passes or individual tickets, and you can even use your credit card directly at the green card readers at the turnstiles. Single-fare tickets are SEK 38, and are valid for multiple entries on the whole network up to 75 minutes.
Credit cards are universally accepted in basically all shops, restaurants and attractions, including vending machines and public transport, even for tiny purchases.
Many places no longer accept cash. Your best bet is to go cash-free.
