The me Convention 2018 will take place in the chic environs of Nacka Strandsmässan. Close to the city as well as to the water, this vibrant and modern space will provide the perfect backdrop to discuss ideas that will shape the future. The space where Nacka Strandsmässan now stands owes its origins to the automotive industry. What originally began as a motor manufacturing company, founded by industrial pioneer Johan Victor Svenson, succumbed to the economic depression and closed in the 1920s. Philipson Automobil AB went on to take over the company and from then on the facility was used to assemble imported cars. Nacka Strandsmässan opened its doors as a venue for meetings, events, and exhibitions in 1991 and has since established itself as the prime location to host events in Nacka Strand.

Nacka Strand district combines the vibrancy of the city with peaceful views of the sea. Besides acting as a home to the Swedish fashion industry and over 80 companies, the sprawling neighborhood also offers shops, restaurants, residential blocks, hotels, meeting and event venues, health clubs, and other services as well as its own marina. With a large selection of venues, surrounded by water and nature in close proximity to downtown Stockholm, Nacka Strand is the destination of choice for both recreation and business.

Over recent years, the city of Stockholm has attracted entrepreneurs from various industries, leading to its rise as one of the most innovative tech scenes in the world. Home to pioneers in technology as well as up-and-coming startup companies, the city fosters innovation and creativity. This inventive and passionate spirit for building a better future makes the city the perfect spot to host the next me Convention.
