Alcohol Policy Nordbygg 2018 At Nordbygg 2018, the sale of high-strength beer and wine (no spirits) will be concentrated to the permanent restaurants found throughout the facilities. Only mid- and low-strength beer will be delivered to the stands and sold at the temporary restaurants in the halls. The reason for these new guidelines is in part to increase the focus on safety but also because we have received feedback from both visitors and exhibitors that alcohol does not belong in the modern building industry. It is welcome in the evening in a more social context, but during the days of the exhibition people are working and want to have professional meetings with customers, colleagues, partners and suppliers. For exhibitors who would like to treat their visitors to a business lunch with high-strength beer or wine, this is still possible at one of the permanent restaurants, for example Flavour Bar & Kitchen and The Garden in the Entrance Hall. The new rules will go into effect as of Nordbygg 2016, which means that exhibitors placing catering orders with Mässrestauranger for their stands will have a broader selection of mid- and low-strength beer to choose from, but no high-strength beer or wine. The new rules apply during the exhibition’s opening hours. At Nordbygg 2016 there were restrictions on serving alcoholic beverages in the stands. This allowed only serving mid- and low-strength beer in their stands and temporary restaurants, which had a very positive impact on the quality of visitors. The background to the new guidelines was partly an increased security focus and views from both visitors and exhibitors. In the exhibition survey conducted at the fair, it was found that a social rounding of the fair day brings added value to customers, colleagues etc. and that in this context you wish to offer beer and wine. As a result of that, Nordbygg together with Mässrestauranger, has decided to allow serving of stronger beverages (beer and wine) from 3.30 p.m. in their stands. The order will be made at Mässrestauranger's webshop, which will be opened closer to the fair. We will return with exact date in the fall. Of course, the possibility of applying for evening meal will still be available. Delivery takes place every day between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., in order to handle prior orders with the latest date of purchase, March 23, 2018. If you wish to serve stronger drinks for several days, you will need to place an order for each day. For those wishing to invite a business lunch with strong beer or wine, there is still the possibility to visit one of the permanent restaurants, such as Flavor Bar & Kitchen and The Garden at tje Entrance Hall. All serving of alcohol in the stand must be ordered in advance by Mässrestauranger that own the license.
