Scandic Hotels has signed a long-term lease agreement with Bane NOR Eiendom and Utstillingsplassen Eiendom to operate an upcoming hotel in the Nyhavna area of Trondheim. 

When it opens, the hotel will be the city’s largest conference-focused property with 425 rooms and conference facilities covering close to 4,000 square meters. The hotel is expected to open in 2022.

In a statement, Svein Arild Steen-Mevold, managing director of Scandic Hotels Norway, said that Trondheim has "great potential as a conference destination," in part because of its location in the middle of Norway and airlift capabilities to other parts of the country.
