Location:

The venue is at the offices of CGI Norge at Beddingen 10 in Trondheim (see map). The entrance is on the east-side of the building, next to Mix. Call the number at the bottom if you’re lost.

We will try to offer as private accommodation for free for those who want that, but be early because there is a limited number of spots (maximum ~6 spots).

 

Getting to Trondheim:

 

For those who are younger than 26 years:

Both Norwegian and SAS offer youth tickets, both domestically and (sometimes) internationally, with reduced prices. The price difference is often considerable so it is worth checking it out! On SAS you will have to create and log in to an account (this is free), while at Norwegian you just write the code UNDER26 at the bottom of the screen after searching for the flight.
