Welcome to Grieghallen,
the official venue of ICP14
Culture, conference and exhibition centre. The opportunity to combine culture with conferences, exhibitions and more is a unique feature of the Grieg Hall.
Built in 1975 by Danish arquitect Knud Munk who used cement, steel and glass. He was inspired by colleagues Mies van der Rohe og Arne Jacobsen, and from Japanese brutalist arquitecture. Following development and expansion after 1996, it became a nationale centre for international congresses.
Thanks to the variety, flexibility and high quality of its facilities and technical offerings, Grieg Hall is widely considered to be the best venue on the market for cultural events, trade exhibitions, conference, receptions and even banquets – to the repeat pleasure of all who host small and large events.
A sustainable arena
The public, organizers and partners can trust that the Grieg Hall acts sustainably. The Grieg Hall is an older building with great symbolic value both locally, nationally and internationally. It was not built with sustainability in mind, and the Grieg Hall is therefore doing all that can be done to be as sustainable as a new building. The beehives on the roof and the honey production have almost become a symbol that the responsibility for sustainability is taken seriously. The honey produced on the roof is included in the Grieg Hall’s menus, which also offer sustainable and local food.
