Social programme and networking

The summit will give its participants many opportunities for networking and experiencing Lillehammer. The conference will take place when the winter in Lillehammer is at its best and when the landscape is covered in white dry snow. We like to share some of this the first night when all participants are welcome to join us for the welcome reception at magical Hunderfossen Winterpark. Here you will find a small village build in snow and ice. After the reception, participants can register for the get together and dinner in trendy Brenneriet in the heart of Lillehammer. On the second night we will have a dinner with cultural programme at the conference venue.
