The EuroSTAR 2024 conference is taking place in the Swedish capital of Stockholm in the Stockholmsmässan Convention Center, south west of the city center.
Nicknamed “Venice of the North”, Stockholm is set on an archipelago of 14 islands, connected by 57 bridges. Summers are warm and it rarely gets dark during summer nights. The city offers world-class museums and historically fascinating royal palaces as well as niche galleries and intimate artist houses. A forward-thinking, innovative city, Stockholm is home to a growing tech-innovation community and a large number of start-ups.
We hope to see you in Sweden for EuroSTAR 2024!
