A fellowship of excellence

Norway’s Stavanger region is ready to host it all with a reformed and improved venue cluster, optimized for great experiences – Siddis Center.

The area surrounding Siddis Center, just on the outskirts of bustling downtown Stavanger, has been the heart of the region’s event hosting offerings for decades. It has been a prime destination for events, exhibitions, conferences and uninhibited ambitions, and millions of people have come through to attend conferences, compete, spectate, learn, do business and expand horizons.

Built on legacy

The venue cluster has been significantly expanded and upgraded in recent years, gradually transforming and modernizing to meet the requirements of an ever more conscious international market. Perhaps most famous for being the centre point of the vast Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) conference and exhibition, Siddis Center and its surrounding areas have shown themselves to be a worthy alternative to most other high-profile global event destinations. Successfully hosting, accommodating and servicing close to 90.000 people over a four-day period, to great acclaim, undeniably proves that.

Enter Siddis Center; a more streamlined, better organized, more visually pleasing and better-coordinated platform for any event.

Its goal? To make organising an event simpler and more streamlined than ever before and make the greater Stavanger region poised to be a top competitor for a convention- and event industry on the rebound.

Single destination, countless options

Siddis Center comprises of six entities, each offering state-of-the-art specialities and unique properties: DNB Arena, Clarion Hotel Energy, IMI Forum, Stavanger Forum Hotel, Stavanger Forum, Stavanger Ice Rink and several multiport halls.

Combined, they represent one of Norway’s largest facility clusters for conferences, sports, trade fairs and events, covering every aspect of any sized event. The fellowship’s modularity makes it easy to plan and program tailor-made events, eliminating traditional all-or-nothing choice options.

“As destination promoters, we are immensely excited to represent the rejuvenated and aptly renamed Siddis Center to an increasingly travel- and action-hungry market, post-corona. Siddis Center offers a perfect mix of vast audience capacities, unique tourism- and adventure options, state-of-the-art accommodation, advanced technical frameworks and unparalleled flexibility. It makes us prouder than ever to represent our region on the global stage,” says Region Stavanger’s Director of Tourism, Per Morten Haarr.

“The new constellation setup will make it easier than ever for event organizers to pick and choose among the various venues, organize staff and support, plan, execute and ensure smooth operations, no matter the size of the event in question,” he adds.
