Welcome Reception

Wednesday - June 12th

18:00 - 20:00

We would like to welcome you to the opening reception of IMX 2024 in Stockholm hosted by Ericsson. This event will take place in the Open Box area in the Ericsson headquarters building. We will be happy to serve light snacks along with beer, wine, and alcohol-free alternatives. You are free to mingle with Ericsson engineers and researchers with an interest in immersive technology. During the evening select Ericsson projects and teams will present their work and be available to answer questions.

Ericsson is a leader in mobile communications, low latency networking and interactive media. We are happy for this opportunity to support the IMX community and engage in discussions on topics of common interest.

Ericsson - Indoor

Conference Dinner

Thursday - June 13th


The evening event on Thursday will be in the centre of town, at Venue81 on Drottninggatan. 

There will be bus transport from the conference venue in Kista leaving at 18:00 – or you can make your own way there on the subway (central station, Sergels Torg exit at Åhléns takes you out right on Drottninggatan – then just walk 10 minutes up past the Bio Skandia cinema, the Playhouse Theatre, the Best Western Hotel Bentleys until you cross Kammakargatan and the venue will be on your left). 

We will start with a welcome drink, learn a traditional Swedish song or two, and have a traditional midsummer buffet. 

The venue will close at 11pm – the subway will continue to operate until the last train for Akalla (stopping at Kista, where the venue is) leaves at 12:59 on the Blue No.11 line. If you miss that, the 197 bus to Sollentuna station runs at least once an hour until 5am. The subway and busses take contactless credit card payment at the turnstile or driver-entrance, tickets can also be purchased on the SL app.

Uber, Bolt, and CabOnline app services to book Taxi services work well in Stockholm – when taking cabs on the street, be careful to take a reputable company (Taxi Stockholm, Taxi Kurir, Sverigetaxi) as unregulated taxis can legally charge any rate on the meter.
