Increasingly, international companies are choosing to hold meetings and conferences in Iceland. The facilities are top class, and the venues are equipped with the newest technology and staffed by professionals who are skilled in making your event a success. As such, Iceland enjoys an excellent reputation with the global business community.
The Icelandic people are sophisticated and well-travelled, and English is spoken by nearly everyone. Many also speak French, German, Spanish, and one or more of the Scandinavian languages. Iceland’s location means that it is influenced by both North America and Europe, giving it a cosmopolitan edge, despite a population of just over 300,000. This makes holding an event in Iceland a pleasure.
It is also extremely easy for international firms to access Icelandic companies and institutions that are in similar fields, and many Icelandic businesses welcome the opportunity to exchange ideas and share knowledge.
Icelandic experts provide consultancy services to governments and organisations throughout the world in industries such as fisheries and geothermal energy. Iceland has also been party to an international project to test the use of hydrogen as new source of energy. Other key industries in Iceland include genetic research, pharmaceuticals, and tourism.
