Meet in Reykjavík has partnered with the University of Iceland (HÍ), Reykjavík University (HR) and the Iceland University of the Arts (LHÍ) in a bid to increase the number of international academic meetings and conferences.

Meet in Reykjavík will assist the universities in bidding for international meetings and conferences, as well as helping promote the universities worldwide.

Þorsteinn Örn Guðmundsson, MD of Meet in Reykjavík said that the agreement is an important step in strengthening Reykjavík as an international conference destination.

He said: “We have had good relations with the universities in recent years and are interested in expanding on our collaboration and making greater efforts to seek suitable projects for the destination and the university community here in Iceland.”

Iceland has been focusing on formulating policies on issues pertaining to equal rights, geothermal energy and the Arctic region, which has resulted in increased interest in holding meetings and conferences on these matters in Iceland.
