It just might be good business – The opportunity of connecting and getting inspired in Iceland

Iceland is known to be a magical place. The nearness to nature, the warm-hearted people and the sense of isolation on this island far away from it all in the North Atlantic.

But why is Iceland a good option for getting inspired? Why would you even consider going to Iceland for a professional event or a conference?

There are three obvious reasons for considering Iceland as a destination for your company or institution.

  1. Imagine having your group secluded on a island in the North Atlantic where you can focus on the subject, while at the same time, share some extraordinary experiences in nature with the group. It´s great for group building and for getting people to be fresh while working.
  2. Iceland is ideally situated between Europe and North America, with excellent service from the local airline and a number of other carriers on both sides of the Atlantic. That positions Iceland uniquely in that you can join people together in the “middle.” The flight from for example Amsterdam to Iceland takes less than three hours and from Iceland to NY or Boston takes about 5 hours.
  3. Aside from world-class nature, Iceland has hotels and venues that can handle any kind of a visit – be it a management conference, an exposition, a visit to multiple companies or institutions, or an intimate seminar at a boutique hotel with its own hot spring (if you’d like).

But the appeal of an Iceland event isn’t limited to nature, Northern Lights or hot springs.

Iceland Unwrapped builds on a strong network of personal and professional connections across the country to connect our guests with Icelanders from all walks of life, including their own peers and counterparts in their fields.

Sometimes this comes together as guest visits or speakers events – such as professors, practitioners or public officials. But these encounters also include the popular Dining With The Icelanders events, where participants dine in the homes of locals. Hosts include a noted opera singer and all kinds of professionals,  couples and families all over the country. 

The plan is made in cooperation with you to meet your wishes and needs, including all kinds of cultural experiences and connecting to the locals.

On this third point as well, I think it is important to obtain input from tour operators, such as yourself, so that we are not just discussing these topics in a vacuum but can benefit from the input of Icelanders who work in the tourism sector. “ (Anonymous client)
