It was the weekend of June 10-12, and the temperature and the atmosphere were sizzling as Oslofjord hosted the Gym for Life Challenge 2016! With a common passion for acrobatic and artistic gymnastics, enthusiastic participants and spectators took the trip to Oslofjord. Next year, Oslofjord will also be proud to host the World Gym for Life Challenge 2017. We are looking forward to the event, and gear up with a video from this year’s event!
There is a lot happening on the construction site at Oslofjord. Already in 2017 4 hotel buildings will be completed, and we can see the enormous progress day by day! The exterior of the first 4 buildings are raised, and the fifth is well underway. See up-to-date photos from the New Oslofjord project below.
When Oslofjord Convention Center was established in 2004, it wasn’t easy to draw major business events out of the big cities. If one was to gather all employees, customers or suppliers, it had to be done in suburban areas. Still today, some companies are set on conducting events in the city or in close connection to airports. The employees have a short travel distance, save time and effort and maybe even money. Many also choose traditional day conferences or evening events in order to be cost effective. But maybe you lose something valuable by implementing arrangements in this way? Perhaps the stress factor is higher at these events?
Here at Oslofjord we prioritize an environment and surroundings that are beautiful and welcoming for all who use the area.
There is a lot going on out on the construction site, and the progress is huge! The work continues with roof and façade mounting, and in addition, plastering and painting work has begun in earnest. Here are some fresh photos of the development.
The Oslofjord Grand Opening, the 2016 opening of national road cycling in Norway, took place on April 1-3. The bike races were a huge success, and the fact that the races started and finished in the auditorium and that the audience could sit and follow the races on the big screen made it extra special! The organizers and participants were super satisfied with the event! We have compiled some of the best moments from the cycling fest in this post.

There are two factors that distinguish the time we are living in, precisely in terms of time. One thing is that we receive an enormous amount of information, the other is that we have very little time. Less time than ever before. For many of us, the day goes by in the blink of an eye. We have just managed to hop in our car after work before we rush to day-care, dinner, football practice, music lessons or other activities. We have better tools, better equipment, and smarter technology – so everything should go so much better. We should be so much more effective, and should have more time. But do we?
The current flow of refugees to Europe is the biggest humanitarian crisis after WW2. People are fleeing from war-torn countries, and at the end of September 2015, Oslofjord Convention Center signed an agreement with UDI (The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration) for the emergency accommodation of refugees at Oslofjord until January 31st, 2016.
