|Classy Cultural Center Expands Conference Capacity
Things have never been quite the same in Tórshavn since the Nordic House in the Faroe Islands opened almost 25 years ago.
While the conference facilities already offered by the house may well suffice for hosting a number of high quality events and large gatherings in every season, the additional capacity will allow for a more focused effort in the field of business conferences, seminars, meetings and similar activities. And it will come handy as demand for business related events continues to soar.

In spite of a prevalent viewpoint that distinguishes very clearly between cultural events and business events, a more integrated approach is often seen in the Nordic House, highlighting the fact that there is no business life without culture, and no cultural life without business.
The current extension project is sponsored by the Nordic Council, the Faroese government, the municipality of Tórshavn and the A.P. Møller and Wife Chastine McKinney Møller General Purpose Fund.
The target has been set to eight additional conferences a year, and the Nordic House will be cooperating with local hotels to offer accommodation and related services.
