20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION: Are you an international professional, researcher or student and are based or will soon be arriving in Gothenburg or West Sweden? A warm welcome to our region and we hope you and your family can join us for the 20th edition of Gothenburg’s annual international Christmas event on 4 December.

Due to the corona situation, this year’s welcome event will be held entirely online. But tune in for a sample of Swedish Christmas traditions, as well as inspiring talks and discussions to help you thrive in your new life in Sweden.

A warm welcome!


The event will be streamed live on 4 December, 17:00-18:15. To ensure your participation, please register by 3 December at the latest. We will then send you a link to the live stream before the event.
