The EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF GOLF COURSE ARCHITECTS is holding its
This year the annual event will be based at the COMFORT HOTEL MALMO and the conference seminars will take place in the Gamla Börssalen (Old Market Hall) of MALMO BORSHUS. Due to the popularity of the event we will have a second hotel base, FIRST HOTEL JORGEN KOCK, which is around the corner from the Comfort Hotel.
The event also includes golf on two of the oldest and best courses in the area:
This will be EIGCA's first annual meeting in Scandinavia and Malmö seemed an ideal choice for the venue. Since the opening of the Øresund Bridge in July 2000 linking Denmark and Sweden, Malmö has undergone a period of regeneration and is now one of the most popular event venues in Sweden (it plays host to the Eurovision Song Contest shortly after our meeting).
The Øresund Bridge has made it very easy to travel to Malmö, flying to Copenhagen and then taking the Oresund train from Copenhagen Airport directly to Malmö, where the conference base, the Comfort Hotel, is only a couple of minutes walk away (according to their website just 128 steps!).
Copenhagen is served by many budget airlines including Easyjet, Norwegian, Brussels Airlines, TUIfly, Air Berlin, Aer Lingus and Vueling, and this has enabled us to continue our efforts to keep costs down for our members to attend this annual event. Even though Scandinavia has a reputation for being expensive, we are very pleased that the fees are very similar to Nice last year and indeed Potsdam the year before.
So we look forward to seeing many of you in Malmö in April.
