The venue and speaker hotel is the Scandic Lillehammer Hotel. The hotel combines classic architecture with modern conference facilities. It also boasts a spa, a swimming pool, and a gym, and lies at the edge of the forest within walking distance of the city centre as well as the Maihaugen open-air museum.

The primary overflow hotel is the Scandic Victoria in the center of Lillehammer. We suggest Birkebeineren and Stasjonen as low-cost alternatives. All three are within walking distance of the venue.

The speaker hotel is the same location as the conference venue — the Scandic Lillehammer Hotel.
