The location is the first Marriott International, Inc. hotel in the Nordic region which opened in September last year. This first hotel is build in their new concept called Moxy, see this link: http://moxy-hotels.marriott.com/en . Mariott is a leading global lodging company with more than 6,500 properties across 127 countries. Mariott with headquartered outside of Washington, D.C.has a long history. They where founded by J. Willard and Alice Marriott and have been guided by family leadership for 90 years.
Our hotel is called Oslo X and is found on this link http://moxy-hotels.marriott.com/en/hotels/oslo-x . We made a room block until 2 September of all the hotel rooms available and a web-link will be provided by the hotel where rooms can be booked. After 2 September the remaining rooms will be available on Booking.com, Hotels.com etc.
PS: I'm very much aware of the survey result, from last year. 72% of the participants said they liked the hotel and would like to be in this location also the coming year. This is why I write this "e-mail/blog/news/letter-"text to you. After discussing the new with the people participating last year and the SBN Core Leadership Team I believe the strength of the hotel we had last year was 3 things. 1) The hotel was OK in pricing, and we could keep the conference-price on an acceptable level. 2) It was close to Oslo 3) It was close to the airport. The same goes for this new hotel, it fullfills all 3 criterias and in addition it is fancy and modern and I hope you will like our choice.
All the best, Eva-Maria Fahrer
