Getting to ECE 2024
ECE 2024 Congress Centre
Stockholmsmässan Mässvägen 1, 125 30 Älvsjö, Sweden.
From Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Stockholm City Centre:
We encourage all attendees to travel by public transport where possible. Stockholm Central station is only 10 minutes on the train to the city centre.
The Headquarters Hotel (HQ) is adjoining the Stockholmsmassan Congress Centre.
Arlanda Express Train:
The quickest way to reach Stockholm City Centre from Arlanda Airport is by taking the Arlanda Express train. The train departs directly from the airport every 5-10 minutes and takes approximately 18 minutes to reach Stockholm City Centre. Tickets can be conveniently purchased online or at the information desk in the arrivals hall, or from the designated ticket machines.
Another option is to take an airport bus, such as the Flygbussarna or FlixBus, which connects the airport to various locations in the city. The travel time by bus varies depending on traffic but typically takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Taxis are readily available at the airport, and you can either order one through a ride-sharing app like Uber or pick one up at the taxi rank located directly outside the arrivals area.
From Stockholm City Centre to Stockholmsmässan:
Commuter Train (Stockholms Pendeltåg):
To travel from Stockholm City Centre to Stockholmsmässan, you can take the Stockholms Pendeltåg (Stockholm Commuter Train). The closest train station is Älvsjö station which sits directly outside the congress centre. The journey typically takes around 10 to 15 minutes.
Taxi from Stockholm City Centre:
To ensure you get the best rates, we recommend ordering a taxi through the Uber service on your phone or simply finding one at the taxi rank located directly outside the station. This way, you can easily and comfortably reach Stockholmsmässan without overpaying for your journey.
We are not able to accept registrations for any accompanying people (including spouses and children) at ECE 2024. This is due to health and safety considerations and our adherence to the Pharmaceutical Code of Practice around the promotion of products to non-Health Care Professionals.
For registered delegates who are parents with small infants and babes in arms, there will be a nursing room available close to the main registration area. Please ask the staff at the Registration Desk to show you where this is. There are no childcare facilities onsite at the Congress, therefore childcare should be arranged separately in Stockholm. To comply with insurance and safety requirements, infants must always be held or be in a pushchair. Entry to the nursing room is subject to all regular ECE 2024 Congress entry regulations.
Babies are permitted to enter the Congress venue with their parent/carer to travel to and from the nursing room only. Please note that children and spouses are not permitted in any ECE 2024 session halls, exhibition areas or adjoining spaces.
We thank you for your understanding.
