The conference Linnaeus Eco-Tech has been an academic tradition since 1997. The conference is organized by Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, every second year. One of it's main goals is to promote research and education cooperation among the countries around the Baltic Sea towards sustainability. It has become more and more obvious that the environmental issues have risen from local through regional to global concern.

Exhibit & Sponsorship
Linnaeus University does not accept cash payments. Better for the environment and for our safety. You pay the conference fee by credit/debit card when register and you also use card to pay in our stores. The trend throughout Sweden is that fewer and fewer places accept cash.
The reserved hotel rooms for the 2018 Eco-Tech conference are no longer available, but if you do need a room there are of course a number of hotels in Kalmar. You will find them all via this link:

Sweden currently practices exceptional border controls on train, ferry and car communication over the national border.
