Clarion Hotel & Congress Malmö Live, Sweden
Dag Hammarskjölds torg 4
211 18 Malmö
Malmö Live offers the best not of two worlds but of three: a top-class concert hall, conference centre and hotel all in one. Covering an entire city block, the 90,000 m2 concourse comes complete with leafy avenues and waterfront eateries. Malmö Live is not only Scandinavia’s hottest cultural venue – it’s a bustling residential and office district too. A dynamic new district in a prime city-centre location. Setting ambitious standards of contemporary architecture, Malmö Live’s multi-level urban landscape will harness exciting contrasts between light and shade. An array of shops, restaurants and cafés mean visitors and guests won’t have to look far for amenities: they’ll be right there on their doorstep.
Everything’s close by in Malmö. The central location with 2 minutes to Malmö Central station, three minutes by train to Triangeln, six to Hyllie – home to Malmö Arena and Emporia mega-mall – and about 20 minutes to Copenhagen Airport and 40 minutes to Malmö Airport, will provide you smooth access to and from Clarion Hotel & Congress Malmö Live. City buses, regional buses and buses to Malmö Airport also stop close by.
Malmö Live consists of three buildings where visitors are welcomed on a common entrance floor. Designed by Danish architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen, Malmö Live draws on its city-centre location and multi-purpose profile. The result is a building that is open in all directions and has no front or back - a city space that erases the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. People are free to pass through or to stop and linger.
Malmö Live is a sustainable, green project. The intention is to develop the area with as little environmental impact as possible, for example by reducing energy consumption and using local energy sources such as geothermal heating, solar energy and wind power. Close proximity to City Tunnel and Central Station makes taking public transport easy. Green roofs absorb water, slow up runoff and promote biodiversity. Solar cells meet some of the building’s energy requirements. Food waste is collected and turned into biogas, and there are nesting boxes for kestrels on the roofs to help this bird of prey to live in a city environment. This ideology is supporting the congress theme of the ECSS Malmö 2015 – Sustainable Sport.
In Malmö ECSS is going to demonstrate a commitment to SCSR and compliance. We are going to collect and understand data which will help ECSS to improve the performance in future events. ECSS believes that by embedding sustainability into the congress, ECSS will improve the efficiency and accelerate innovation. ECSS will develop sustainability practices which will reduce costs, improve environmental impacts and give back to the community.
