Conference Hotel: Scandic Plaza:
The Scandic Plaza Conference center is located in the same building as Hotel Scandic Plaza, which is one of the best hotels in Umeċ and possibly the one with the most beautiful location, by the Ume River. For this conference we have reserved a large number of rooms at Hotel Scandic Plaza, and these are also offered at discount rates for the delegates and accompanying persons.
Hotel Scandic Plaza is located in the center of Umeċ with the main shopping street just around the corner, and the Umeċ Airport only 5 kilometers away. The hotel also offers a spa department and a sauna on the 14th floor, which has a great view over the Ume River. During the summer Umeċ really comes alive and on the adjacent Renmarks’ square you’ll find many nice restaurants and pubs!
