Official Receptions

Reception in the Blue Hall

The City of Stockholm acknowledges the importance of international congresses that take place in Stockholm by hosting a number of official receptions. The receptions take place in the beautiful City Hall, famous not least for the annual Nobel Prize banquet.

For a congress to be invited, certain criteria must be met, and a majority of the delegates must be foreign guests. Decisions on inviting international congresses to the City Hall are taken by the International Committee.

Congresses related to the responsibilities of the County of Stockholm, for example medical meetings or conferences on traffic, are co-hosted by the city and the county. Please contact the Protocol and Events Unit at the City Hall for further information about the application process. The Protocol Unit coordinate requests with the County council.
