Come and be inspired

Come and be inspired. Reykjavík is a vibrant city with an excellent infrastructure, which means access to cutting-edge technology, inspiring meeting venues and warm hospitable people willing and able to render the best service.

Reykjavík is hip, it’s cool, it’s small but offers everything that large cities do. Good hotels, good food, good nightlife, good music and the nature is only a few steps away. And it’s finally affordable to go there  - Lonely Planet's reader

The capital city Reykjavik is expanding its meetings infrastructure and evolving into a premiere location choice for congress and incentive planners, only 3 hours from mainland Europe and 5 hours from N-America. Unlike some major European cities whose size can be intimidating, Reykjavik has a small-scale urban center that attendees find easy to navigate. The hassle-free city center is safe, clean and packed with restaurants, shopping, culture and vibrant nightlife. Visiting delegates enjoy interacting with the friendly Icelanders who speak English as their second language, and often other Scandinavian and European languages.

Iceland was on several top 10 lists of places to visit in 2015 such as in ForbesLifeLonely Planet and TimeOut. Rough Guides chose Reykjavik Iceland as one of Top 10 cities to visit in 2016. The country ranks no.1 on the Global Peace Index 2014 as well as being the friendliest nation according to the World Economic Forum.

...on subsequent visits, the beauty of those same landscapes can still reduce me to tears – but the locals are what affirm my love for Iceland. Their resourcefulness, quirkiness, interconnectedness and warmth is unparalleled. Carolyn Bain

In August  2011, the City of Reykjavik was designated a UNESCO City of Literature as it boasts an outstanding literary history and has one of the highest per capita book publishing rates in the world. It is the only non-English speaking such city to be awarded this honour.
