Since its inception in 1981, Stavanger Forum has been responsible for numerous large and small events. Our long experience and technical expertise has contributed to several major national and international events that have been executed in our region.

Our portfolio includes events such as: Statoil's annual assembly, Lyse's 100 year anniversary, the Conservative Party's national convention and Coop's 100 year anniversary. Concerts by Kent, Jan Garbarek, Turboneger, Oslo Gospel Choir, Morten Abel, Bertine Zetlitz, Lene Marlin and Motörhead. Exhibitions such as: BoligForum (home and garden exhibition), Yrkesmessen (education and career planning exhibition) and ONS (the world's second largest oil and gas exhibition) and conferences like City Conference, Krabat Kindergarten Conference, Schizophrenia Days and Eurochambres - European conference for industry associations ... to name just a few.

Many customers choose Stavanger Forum because of the flexibility, quality and security that leaving an event in our hands ensures. We are, therefore, very grateful for the positive feedback we have received:

Nato PA Stavanger 2015

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your colleagues for making sure everything ran smoothly during the session and for your patience with us (especially with regards to catering). It has been a real pleasure to work with you since our first visit in June last year and I wish you continued success with all your future events at the Stavanger Forum".

- Helen Cadwallender - Head of Conference Service


Grupo Catalana Occidente Award Ceremony

"Thank you very much for everything, our event was a resounding success! Give our congratulations to all in your team."

– Juan Luis Girona - Talisman Group Events

Cartoon Forum

"Cartoon would like to thank the Stavanger Forum team for the support and help we received during the preparation and certainly during the last week of the Cartoon Forum Stavanger. It was a pleasure to work with you all: From Stavanger Forum people to security, cleaning etc. A special thank to the catering team: a very professional team, always smiling and willing to help, and serving very tasty food. We received a lot of compliments from our participants about the food quality."

– Marc Vandeweyer - Cartoon

EVS 24

"As President for the WEVA, I would like to thank Stavanger Forum for the inspired contribution in making EVS 24 a fabulous event. Both the staff and the venue was superb, and the event - which comprised an exposition, drive and ride and scientific conferences - was planned and executed in a professional and well organised way. The event provided for excellent networking opportunities. I will highly recommend Stavanger Forum for associations and companys that consider having an event in Norway."

– Robert Stüssi - President of WEVA and AVERE

Audiofil exhibition

"We have had a fantastic time. You have provided incredibly good service and been very helpful to us. We appreciate this very much, and are already looking forward to our next collaboration. I would make particular mention of your technical department.
So, once again, a million thanks."


"I am sorry that it has taken so long for me to write to thank you for a truly memorable and wonderful week! I came back to a whirlwind of meetings so that I have not even managed to catch up with emails nor important tasks such as thanking those who did so much to make this what was - I suspect for all - the most successful and enjoyable meeting ever! I know it was a huge huge amount of work. Perfection does not come easily! It will be an impossible act to follow."

Douglas Chamberlain - UK Resuscitation Council

Nordic Audiology Society (NAS)

"The congress we have worked on for several years has now been successfully completed. We have constantly had a very good impression of Stavanger Forum and the work it has done. It has been absolutely orderly and professional. Everyone we have been in contact with before, during and after the congress has done an excellent job. I have received no complaints, but much praise from many quarters. While this committee is unlikely to stage another congress in Stavanger, we will definitely recommend Stavanger Forum to other possible organising committees here."

– Olav Mjølsnes - Stavanger University Hospital

Norwegian Travel Workshop

"In behalf of Innovation Norway and all our participants in the Norwegian Travel Workshop, we would like to thank Stavanger Forum for an outstanding commitment to planning and staging this event.
Stavanger Forum's involvement and service before and during the workshop helped to ensure that NTW in Stavanger was staged in the best possible way. Stavanger Forum has everything required for the success of a large project of this kind - technical equipment, fantastic premises, service, initiative and enthusiasm. Everything functioned very well from the word go."

– Per-Arne Tuftin and Hedvig M B Poulsen

Young Entrepreneur

"I would just like to express my gratitude for a great collaboration with Stavanger Forum in connection with the Young Entrepreneur event on 20 October. What a great staff you have, nothing was a problem."

– Catrine Utne Pettersen - Young Entrepreneur Rogaland

NATO Allied Reach Conference

"Thank you so much for conducting the successful NATO Allied Reach Conference at Stavanger Forum on 1 February. The surroundings were ideal for the first plenary day of the conference with an excellent auditorium and dining facilities for all the delegates and the flexibility upstairs for the side meetings between some of the most senior military commanders in NATO and the Minister of Defence, Kristin Krohn Devold. The dinner hosted by the Minister in the evening was superbly organised and in a wonderful setting. However, more importantly, the staff were extremely helpful in assisiting us with the organisation of this Conference, which was particularly significant as we had no previous experience in this area. Their responses to the ever changing situation was faultless."

– Major General James Short - NATO

Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences (NTVA)

"I have received so many thanks and so much praise for the events in Stavanger that I can well afford to share them with Stavanger Forum, Rica Forum Hotel and my secretary in Trondheim.

Before I recommended to the NTVA's board that this event should be held in Stavanger Forum and Rica Forum Hotel, I had visited several hotels in Stavanger. You had the cleanest and tidiest premises, and that created an important first impression for me. You are in a business where small details can overturn major contracts. In areas where many people congregate, tidiness is only possible if all employees accept a common responsibility for it. When everyone thereby contributes to and feels responsible for a common product, the outcome will be good. When everyone is also highly competent in their primary function, the outcome will be very good. The NTVA's guests constantly used the word ‘excellent' to describe the event"

– Hein Johnson - NTVA
