Venue Malmö Live

Centrally located in the harbour area, Malmö Live was built in August 2015. The area, a former landfill during the 19th century, was completely remodelled in 2008, when the city of Malmö decided to create a whole new neighbourhood, intended as a meeting place to host music events and congresses. Malmö Live, which was built in combination with Clarion Hotel, is now home for the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, with a concert venue capable of hosting 1,600 people. In addition, it has 24 conference rooms and a congress hall for 1,500 participants, which offers a unique venue to host conferences and events.

Hotel Recommendations

Clarion Hotel


The hotel rises 85 metres above ground, a new landmark to add to the city skyline. A meeting place far beyond the norm for local residents, visitors and conference guests alike. The hotel is located in the same building as the venue for the event, and only 5 minutes by walk from the central train station. Book here

Elite Hotel Savoy


A hotel with a long history, overlooking the Central train station. A classical feeling pervades the entire building, that also houses The Bishops Arms pub as well as a gym and a sauna.

Distance from the venue: 7 minutes walk

HOW TO GET HERE Travel Plans

The easiest way to get to Malmö is to fly to Copenhagen, Denmark, and Kastrup Airport (CPH). Then you take the Öresundstrain from the airport to Malmö C, which takes 20 minutes. You take the train from Terminal 3 and buy your tickets before going down to the tracks. There are service points and also machines marked “Skånetrafiken” where you buy your ticket by credit card. Please note that the return ticket is ONLY valid for 24h so don’t buy that if staying longer. You CANNOT buy a ticket on the train and you will be heavily fined if traveling without ticket. The train leaves from Track 2 every 20 minutes, check out the timetable here. Note that the end station can vary but all trains leaving towards Sweden pass Malmö C.

Once in Malmö C it is walking distance to all the hotels we have recommended as well as to the venue (see further up on this page for direction to venue).
