Dear colleagues, it is an honor for the Swedish National Committee of ICOLD, SwedCOLD, to extend an invitation to host the 91st ICOLD Annual Meeting Gothenburg in June 2023.
Since the foundation of ICOLD SwedCOLD has successfully hosted three ICOLD events; the first Congress in 1933, the third Congress in 1948 and the Annual Meeting in 1981. The relationship between ICOLD and the Swedish hydropower and mining industries has always been important to us, and has provided a good international base for our work. In Sweden this is of special importance as the hydropower provides close to 50 % of all electricity in the country, and the mining industry is considered to be strategically important and the prerequisite for many of the other industrial activities in the country.
It would be a pleasure to welcome all delegates to the city of Gothenburg, and to technical tours visiting various hydropower and tailings dam projects in Sweden as well as the rich nature, cultural and tourist attractions.
The conference will take place at the convention centre Svenska Mässan, centrally located Gothenburg, with everything the town can offer at walking distance. Gothenburg is the heart of Scandinavia, located on the Swedish west coast, with direct connections to most major cities in Europe. This document describes all sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities: we will be happy to discuss them with your organization!
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we welcome you at ICOLD 2023!
Anders Isander, Chairman Organizing Committee Maria Bartsch, President SwedCOLD
The conference offers unique sponsorship opportunities for your company and your brand as it provides a great international exposure at this annual event. This time in Sweden!
We believe this possibility to participate and cooperate in an international event of this magnitude is something that would be of benefit to you as a company but also it will further the industry and help improving our work and efforts as e.g. dam owners, service providers, suppliers or regulators. As a sponsor you can get a good exposure of your company’s services and also contribute to the arrangement in many different ways. As an exhibitor you will get the opportunity to showcase your products or services at an event that
draws a big international attention.
In the sponsor and exhibition brochure, we provide detailed information on how to become a sponsor and exhibitor for ICOLD 2023
