  • We have built a new congress building in marble, glass, steel and wood as an extension of the existing glass facade at Bella Centre. The 4,000 m² extension harmonises with the existing buildings, and the intention is that the centre will be an integral part of the hotel so that guests can easily move between the hotel and the congress centre.

    The three-floor congress centre includes several foyer areas, restaurants and a large auditorium that can be divided into three smaller lecture halls. The auditorium has been designed as an amphitheatre with fixed seating for 930. Moreover, we have designed intermission areas with mobile bars and large glass facades with views.

    The extension makes Bella Center Scandinavia’s largest congress and exhibition centre and it means that Bella Center has room for 7,300 delegates at any one time in permanent congress facilities.
