"As a member of CEAC (COMMON Europe Advisory Counsil) and lecturer for IBM i related topics at Hochschule for Applied Sience in Darmstadt, It was easy for me to decide to go to the COMMON Europe Congress in Stockholm in June. This is the place where the best people around the IBM i platform will meet."

Marriott Courtyard Hotel

10-minute walk to metro
Located in the Kungsholmen neighborhood, Courtyard by Marriott Stockholm Kungsholmen is a peaceful retreat bordering a park and lake with running trails. Nearby Thorildsplan Station makes it easy for visitors to visit Gamla Stan or central Stockholm, about 12 minutes by train.

How to get there and other information:

Local food, global twists
Guests wake up to a full American breakfast each morning. BJORK Bar & Grill, designed to look like a birch forest, serves local dishes with an international twist for dinner. The hotel offers bike rentals, and the 24-hour fitness center has cardio equipment and free weights.

We have no special deal with the hotel, but you can book through (meet Rainer Ross, the man behind this IBM i based search engine at the conference).
