Cardiology congress in Stockholm

This upcoming weekend is like no other. The European Society of Cardiology is holding their congress with some 20 000 participants from the 28 of August to September 1 at Stockholm International Fairs.

A pearl in the maritime Stockholm

You know the feeling of a pleasant surprize? Last week  I visited SS Orion a ship in the maritime environment on the Skeppsholmen island. I wasn't really expecting anything. But the ship and the people behind made a real impact. The ship has been restored to its former glory with mahogany - even on the toilet.

Though its an old steam ship the owners have modernised it so its now environmental friendly. "We replaced the ship’s oil-fired boiler with an environmental friendly heat pump. Our energy source to the heat pump is the water in Stockholms Ström (Actual water in the harbour) through a heat exchanger located below the water. The system is complemented with effective solar collectors on the top deck", says Bo Thorstenson the owner of the ship.

They are now hoping to host smaller executive meetings etcetera on the boat.

The Fair expands

The extension of Stockholm International Fairs will be ready at the turn of the year. The project was sparked by the Fair's ambition to once again host Europe's largest congress, the European Society of Cardiology which takes place in the end of August 2010.

The extension offers other advantages as well. Larger floor space and new restaurant areas combined with adaptable, flexible solutions will mean more customers and new possibilities. The additional space will allow greater flexibility at popular fairs such as the Stockholm Furniture Fair in february.

The walkway will have a polished surface and lots of green details, efforts are also put in to the entrance and the restaurant area.
