Gothenburg - 400 years and still innovative. With Roger Moore behind the wheel, the Volvo P1800 became world famous in the 60s TV series The Saint, responsible for the iconic car design was Pelle Petterson from Gothenburg. With his love for design combined with salty winds, Pelle Petterson is best known for designing sailing boats, not least the extremely popular Maxi boats, and various motorboats. More than 85,000 boats have been built according to Petterson's drawings, apart from boats he has also designed everything from lawnmowers to mopeds to roof boxes. And there is more, he also has medals from both the Olympics and World Cup in sailing and has been the driving force behind two of Sweden's America's Cup ventures.
Design, music and advertising from the Gothenburg region are gaining success worldwide. Designers are involved from an early stage of the business process and an integral part of industrial development. The creative climate in Gothenburg is vital and very central to the city's competitiveness and ability to attract talent. Culture not only has an intrinsic value in itself - a city embracing culture and creativity becomes an attractive city to stay in. Ask Pelle Petterson.
At Business Region Gothenburg, we are driven by the conviction that artists and creators play an important role in all kinds of innovation processes and we work actively to support the city's cultural and creative industries.

For over a year the island of Hamneskär has been world news. Why? Because Pater Noster, the king of lighthouses has been transformed into a place for guests seeking a home on the horizon. 

Awarded best hotel of the decade by The Telegraph, winning the Gold Keys Awards and being part of the goody bag for Oscar winners are only a few of the highligts of this windblown outpost of the archipelago.

Maybe you will meet Anthony Hopkins, Chloé Zhao or Frances McDormand at the suppertable?
