Registration is obligatory for all networking events at the conference. For catering purposes, please indicate on the registration form which networking event you will attend and whether you will be accompanied (limited to one accompanying person). Please note that for some events we have a limited number of participants and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Welcome drink and early registration - included in registration fee

Early registration will take place on Sunday 10 September from 16:00 at Malmömässan (congress venue). It is followed by a Welcome Drink from 18:00 to 19:30. Registration will continue on Monday at 08:00 and throughout the week.

Icebreaker - included in registration fee

The Icebreaker will take place on Monday 11 September at Luftkastellet from 18:30 to 22:00. Luftkastellet is a building at the seaside with a great view of the famous Öresund bridge. The impressive bridge connects Denmark and Sweden over the Öresund. The main architect was Georg K S Rotne and the bridge, which is around eight kilometres long with its symmetrical 204 metre high pylons, was officially opened on 1 July 2000. The crossing as a whole is 16 kilometres long.

Buses will depart from Malmömässan at 18:15 and take participants directly to the Icebreaker venue. The return buses will stop at the conference venue and at Hyllie train station from where you can get a train to Malmö, if you are staying there.

Conference Dinner

The City of Malmö cordially invites the attendees of the 2023 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference to dinner on Wednesday 13 September from 18:30 to 22:00 at the Old City Hall, Stortorget 2, Malmö.

The historical town hall in Malmö was built in 1544–1547, at a time when Malmö was one of the largest cities in Scandinavia. The two-storey building was the largest town hall built in the 16th century. The town hall received its present Dutch Renaissance style facade around 1860 in the wake of extensive restoration work, including work on the original medieval facade.

The aperitif will be served in the modern Old City Hall Chamber which is used for exhibitions and events. During general elections, ballots from Malmö’s voting districts are collected and counted here. The seated dinner will take place in Knut’s Chamber, which was designed to resemble the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace in Versailles and is used for special events and balls.

Buses will depart from Malmömässan at 18:15 and take participants directly to the dinner venue. There will be no organised return transfer. For those staying in Hyllie, the train station is only five minutes away.

The dinner attendance is restricted to 290 guests, and priority will be given to conference participants. For this reason, places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis and we will generate a waiting list for accompanying persons.
