Book your flights to Oslo Airport at Gardermoen either directly (and you will get them reimbursed) or through Camilla S. Thomsen (in this case, the more information you have - dates, specific flights, etc. - the better). The fastest way to get from the airport to downtown Oslo is the Airport Express Train. Get off at Oslo Central Station (Oslo S), and you will find the Kick-Off venue right across the street.
The stay at the hotel will be paid by us directly. For other expenses please keep all original receipts and boarding cards.
