Congress in Västerås

Västerås has everything from large multi-purpose arenas to smaller meeting venues in picturesque surroundings by Lake Mälaren. The opportunities are seemingly endless when arranging a conference, exhibition, congress, business, banquet, annual general meeting or board meeting.

In the heart of Västerås stands one of the country’s leading conference and congress facilities, Aros Congress Center. Here you will have access to 24 000 m² of conference halls and 2 000 m² of exhibition area. The Congress Center is located in the city center, close to shopping and restaurants, and a mere two-minute stroll from Västerås Central Station.

The pride of the event area Rocklunda is ABB Arena Syd, an indoor bandy rink with a capacity for 10 000 spectators, which can even house large-scale productions, competitions and events. ABB Arena Nord, the city’s hockey arena, is also used for sports events and exhibitions. In addition, the area includes Bombardier Arena, an event facility with space for 2 800 visitors.

Finding lodging in Västerås for a meeting is simple, comfortable and affordable. Västerås has 1 000 hotel rooms spread across 11 hotels, most of which are within walking distance to the city center and train station. Several hotels have recently undergone renovation, while others are planning to renovate presently. Another two centrally located hotels, The Steam Hotel and The Comfort Hotel, will be opening in 2017 and 2018, respectively. These hotels will have 226 and 150 rooms, respectively.

Local merits

What could you expect from Västerås? That depends on you. For you can get what you want out of this city and its setting. The lake front, which embraces the city, will command your attention as soon as you get off the train. But beyond Sweden’s most picturesque lake, both classic Swedish nature and an unmistakable vibrant pulse reveal themselves. Turn your back to Lake Mälaren to immediately catch sight of Västerås Concert Hall, side by side with the iconic skyscraper. Continue a bit, and suddenly you are in historic Anundshög. A few steps more and you are at the city beach Lögastrand. Further out in Västmanland, you will reach the captivating Sala Silver Mine. Here is a city at your disposal, a city you can make your own.

Green get-togethers

With a long tradition of industry, Västerås has given birth to a number of international corporations. And the present-day demands that companies place on sustainable business travel and meetings have kept Västerås up to speed. From once having 45 % of its hotel rooms eco-certified, the city now has nearly 93 %. The city’s congress venue, the first in Sweden to attain the Nordic ecolabelling ”The Swan”, is appropriately leading the way. Even the building itself is certified in accordance with GreenBuilding.

Västerås Convention Bureau has the avowed intent to contribute to the development of local sustainability with regard to its meeting industry. In collaboration with the municipality and the region, we work actively with clients and suppliers to reach this goal. Our aim is to become the ”top-of-mind” destination when organizing a sustainable meeting.
