– April Inferno Metal Music festival and conference slated for Oslo

Published: Thu Mar 17 2011

Another innovation, expected to be crowded out with fans and metal music business people, is ‘speed meeting’, based on the speed dating concept. The events will run for 90 minutes, during which time everyone should be able to meet and talk with at least 15 people, giving an intensive networking opportunity. Again, the sharing of ideas is the focus.

Seminars on the current music scene and an internet promotion workshop focusing on social networking as a communications tool for metal music businesses and fans are features of the conference.

The choice of Oslo as this year’s venue is likely to be a popular one, and with venues for the activities holding as many as 1500 people, local hotels in the vicinity of venues and at Oslo Airport are already enjoying a boost in bookings, according to online market leader, who advise making reservations in Oslo Airport Hotels well in advance when planning to attend Inferno. The city is a favourite destination for short breaks as well as for those wishing to tour the famed Norwegian fjords, meaning hotel accommodation is often in short supply.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at, said, "We recommend early booking wherever possible when travelling to a popular event. Oslo, she adds, is a great city to visit, especially during one-off annual events like Inferno."
