FMM Stockholm Goes Virtual

Navigating the post-COVID hospitality environment requires adaptability, flexibility, and innovation.

We are planning for a virtual and hybrid event – with the addition of a number of digital components to the traditional live event in order to offer the participants and exhibitors additional benefits in this new context.

What is a Virtual Conference?

The conference will take place within a virtual venue platform and at the hybrid venue at Old Central Post Office Building Vasagatan in Stockholm as well.

Part of the programme-presentations and panel-discusssions will be broadcasted live from our studio at Old Central Post Office Building. Event components that participants would traditionally experience in-person will be presented virtually.
