Reykjavik to host 2018 EURAM and ECSMGE 2019 conferences

Meet in Reykjavik's ambassador club has been in place since 2014. To date, some 150 ambassadors have registered to work with the convention bureau to attract meetings, conferences and events in their field. Two of those members, Dr Eyþór Ivar Jónsson and Haraldur Sigursteinsson have managed to secure two large European conferences in Reykjavik, Iceland, attracting over 1,000 delegates each to the City.

Dr Eyþór Ivar Jónsson runs the Center for Corporate Governance in Iceland and applied to host EURAM in 2017, but lost to Glasgow. He did not quit there, but resubmitted a bid and secured a win for the 2018 EURAM conference in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Haraldur Sigursteinsson, Chairman of the Icelandic Geotechnical Society and Chairman for the local committee of the Nordic Geotechnical Meeting in Iceland 2016, applied to host the European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering – ECSMGE in 2019 and won against Belgium by 22 votes to 11.
