SKA Hotels is delighted to announce that we have extended our existing partnership with Scandic Hotels to bring all Scandic properties in Sweden and Denmark into our European hotel collection, which already includes the group’s German operations in Berlin and Hamburg.

Commenting during a visit to Stockholm on SKA’s role as Scandic’s official sales and marketing partner for the UK, MD John Kettner said:

“Scandic is the leading name in hotels in Scandinavia and we’re very pleased that the group has chosen SKA to increase awareness of their brand and venues within the UK market, especially given the growing interest among UK companies in Stockholm and Copenhagen in particular as meeting destinations.
We’re also excited about what our new partnership with Scandic represents for SKA as a company: not only does it open up a brand new region for us in terms of destinations we cover and options we can offer our UK clients, but it also confirms SKA as one of the leading hotel collections of our kind, providing access to more than 140 venues in Europe.”

Please check the portfolio section of our site in early November for more details on Scandic’s key conference hotels in Stockholm and Copenhagen. And in the meantime, just get in touch if you need any further information or would like to make an enquiry for either of these exciting destinations.

Commenting on the new additions to SKA’s portfolio, MD John Kettner said:  “We’re really excited about our new collaboration with Palais Events, as it will allow us to introduce these classic Viennese locations to UK event organisers looking for unique places for special events in Vienna. For SKA as a company, this also represents the first move towards diversifying our proposition by bringing standalone event venues into our existing collection of European conference hotels.”

SKA Hotels is pleased to announce the addition of Scandic Hamburg Emporio hotel to our European conference venue collection, which already includes the group’s flagship hotel in Germany, the Scandic Berlin Potsdamer Platz.

MD John Kettner commented: “Scandic is one of the most exciting hotel brands in Europe, with some brilliantly designed new-build hotels in city centre locations, competitive bedroom and conference package rates, and a strong focus on environmental sustainability, a factor which is growing in significance for many conference organisers. We’ve very much enjoyed working with Scandic’s hotel in Berlin over the past year and are delighted that the group have chosen to extend their relationship with SKA to their sister hotel in Hamburg. This newcomer on the Hamburg hotel scene is another Scandic property with great potential for hosting international meetings and events, both in its own conference space and through its partnership with the impressive adjoining Emporio tower complex.”
