The Venue – Harpan

Harpa, the new conference and concert centre in Reykjavík opened in May 2011. The building is the ideal venue for various events, international conferences, conventions with accompanying trade shows as well as meetings. Harpa complies with the highest Icelandic thermal performance standards. Its advances in insulation and air-tight constructions make it one of the greenest conference centers in the world. These elements play a key role in minimizing energy use for heating and cooling and therefore reducing carbon emissions.


Booking of accommodation will be available on the registration site when it opens, autumn 2015.
We have pre-booked a number of hotels at a special rate for the conference guests. All the hotels are within walking distance of the conference venue.


People visiting Iceland, whether as tourists or on business, usually agree that visiting the adventure island is an amazing experience; even if there isn’t a volcanic eruption going on! There are many things to see and experience, both within the capital area and in the countryside.
