Grieghallen is the annual host for exhibitions and conventions, both large and small. The fantastic
facilities provide endless possibilities for staging a convention of the highest quality.

Grieghallen is Bergen’s largest convention centre: Dovregubbens Hall is 3,500 square metres in size and Edvard Griegs Plass outside is 5,000 square metres. In addition, Grieghallen’s foyers and Peer Gynt Hall can also be utilised for conventions of various sizes. Here, we provide everything for a successful exhibition and convention at a high international standard.

Well-known conventions in Bergen

Around 15 exhibitions and conventions take place in Grieghallen every year. Among these are the annual Utdanningsmesse (Education Fair) and the sports convention Fritt & Vilt. Fritt & Vilt is the biggest sports convention in western Norway, attracting 30,000 guests annually. The convention organisers take advantage of the opportunity to use Dovregubbens Hall together with Edvard Griegs Plass outside. Therefore, they can have 60 exhibitors shared across 3,500 square metres inside and use the 5,000 square metres outside as an activity area.
