Size wise, Oslo is one of the largest capitals, however only 20% of its land mass has been developed - the rest of this beautiful city is taken up with nature: parks, protected forests, hills, and hundreds of lakes.
Why exhibit there?
Norway is a politically stable, modern and highly developed country with a very strong economy. It is rich in natural resources like oil and gas and marine resources, plus it has a surplus of emission-free hydropower and forest resources.
It has the second highest GDP per capita in Europe, high purchasing power and the world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund.
Once you land at Oslo Airport, it takes 20 minutes to get into town via the train. There are two trains to choose from:
- Airport Express Train (Flytoget) which runs between Drammen, Asker, Sandvika, Lysaker, Skøyen, Nationaltheatret, Oslo S and Lillestrøm
- NSB – Norwegian State Railways which run between Skien, Oslo, Lillehammer and Trondheim stop at Oslo Airport. NSB Local Trains on the Kongsberg–Eidsvoll line also stop at the Airport.

Key tourist hotspots
- The iconic Vigeland Sculpture Park, inside Oslo's famous Frogner Park, is one of Norway's most famous tourist attractions.
- No trip to Norway would be complete without visiting the Viking Ships Museum, home to three historic 9th-century vessels, the best-preserved being the 21-meter-long Oseberg Ship.
- Kolonihagen - expect dishes such as fire-grilled reindeer and wild mushroom soup with black truffles.
- Maaemo - try reindeer heart, spruce juice and fried rye-bread cream with a disc of mead gel.
- Local currency is Norwegian krone.
- The official language is Norwegian.
- You may need to apply for a visa if you’re not from a Schengen country, check the list to be safe.
- Most places use the 2 round pin plug socket.
- Cultural sensitivities. Whilst there are no immediate cultural sensitivities, it is worth noting that Norwegian business culture is based on Scandinavian work values. One of the main values is the focus on equality. As a result, you will see little hierarchy, flat structures and an informal communication.
