Stromma closely follow the advice and recommendations made by the Swedish Public Health Authority regarding the arrangement of meetings and events. We take the spread of Covid-19 very seriously and we do our upmost to reduce the spread of infection and take any actions necessary to provide a safe and responsible way to meet. Naturally, there are many queries surrounding this, we have gathered the most frequent questions and answers below.
Can there be more than 50 people at a konference, kick-off or meeting?
Yes! Kick-offs, meetings and conferences are not considered a public gathering and are therefore exempt from the Public Order Act (which has a limit of 50 people). However, the Public Health authority still recommend that you assess potential risks prior to the event and carry out actions to reduce any risk involved.
What are the recommendations for reducing the spread of infection at a meeting or conference?
Carry out a risk assessment as recommended by the Swedish Public Health Authority (see more information below)
Inform all participants regarding protocol when showing any symptom of illness
Ensure there are sufficient resources for sanitation (of hands etc)
Inform of general hygiene advice at site
How do you carry out a risk assessment?
The Swedish Public Health Authority has compiled a number of questions to assess the potential risk of the event. If you answer mostly YES to these questions the event should be cancelled, if the answers are mostly NO the event should be able to be carried out. If you answer YES to one question you should identify this as a potential risk and create a plan of action accordingly.

Tips for arranging a safer event onboard a boat during Corona
Here you can find our best tips for arranging safer meetings and events onboard a ship during Corona. When you charter a ship we can guarantee exclusivity and ensure that no other people than the staff working onboard have access to your event.
Guaranteed exclusivity onboard
Choose a ship that is suitable to your event – we have many different sized vessels. We recommend choosing a bigger ship to ensure that we can space out the guests.
Many boats have smaller salons so that the guests can be divided into smaller groups.
Many boats have outdoor decking that makes it possible to have some parts of the event outside.
Give all participants clear guidelines of what to do in the event of any symptoms of illness.
Tell all guests to wash their hands often and keep good distance.
