The Rival: Your Hotel for the TBEX Europe 2016 Congress!

Generally I don't blog about my workplace (The Rival Hotel) itself here... but in this case I am going to make an exception as it pertains to my roll as a blogger.
On July 14th through 16th 2016 Stockholm will be the host city of the TBEX Europe congress. TBEX is the largest conference in the world for travel bloggers, online travel journalists, travel brands and other industry professionals. Stockholm has been actively trying to get the chance to host TBEX. And rightly so... it is, after all, the perfect group to open your doors for and showcase your city! The Rival Hotel is offering congress delegates a special discounted rate during the period July 8th to 18th. Click here for more information about the rate and to reserve a room! So why should you, a travel blogger, choose the Rival? I am glad you asked. Here are three great resons!
1. Location. The Rival Hotel is located in a beautiful residential area on the island of Södermalm, yet still is centrally located. It is only a 10 minute walk to the historic Gamla Stan and regular ferries to Djurgården where you will find the Vasa Museum, ABBA the Museum, Skansen and many other popular attractions. The subway station Mariatorget is only 2 blocks from the hotel and the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Center, home of TBEX, is just three subway stops away. Make sure you take time to explore Södermalm with its funky shopping, pedestrian streets, endless cafés and SoFo district. In 2014, Vogue Magazine called Södermalm one of the world’s 15 coolest neighbourhoods.
2. The hotel. The Rival Hotel opened its doors in 2003 as Stockholm’s first boutique hotel. And it is so much more than a hotel! Under the same roof you will find a popular bistro, café, several bars, conference facilities as well as 700-seat theatre. The theatre was once a cinema and this Swedish cinematic theme can be found throughout the Rival. Elegant yet cosy, romantic yet exciting, with a genuinely friendly and welcoming staff... the Rival is the perfect home away from home and a destination in itself. A fantastic place from where to discover what Stockholm has to offer.
Owner, and former ABBA member, Benny Andersson believes that love is in the details. He wanted to create a hotel which conveyed a feeling of coming home. That is why you will find a teddy bear in each and every room at the Rival.
3. Blogger and social media friendly. While warm and cosy, the Rival is still fitted with the latest technology. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel, both in the rooms and public areas. You don’t have to worry about bringing an adapter with you as each room has several USB ports, including the bed’s headboard, where you can charge your smart phones and tablets. Guests can also connect devices such as laptops, tablets or smart phones directly to a JackPack. When the device is connected to the JackPack you can use Apps on your device and display the content directly on the Samsung LED TV that is installed in all of our rooms. Listen to your own music or enjoy your subscriptions* on Netflix, HBO, Spotify etc. We do have extra cables to loan so you can recharge your device via the JackPack as well* Local restrictions may apply
Forgot your computer? Not a problem! On the fourth floor we have a guest corner and business center open 24 hours a day. Here you will find computers to use as well as a printer.
During the TBEX Congress we will have a Bloggers’ Lounge open for delegates staying at the Rival. Here you can get some refreshments, kick back, see what is trending with popular congress hashtags, check your social media accounts and do some serious blogging. In the lounge you have free WiFi & wired internet access. You will also find connections for VGA, USB, HDMI, a 60" Led TV and whiteboards. Get creative! #hotelrival #tbex #tbexeurope 
And if you need another reason after all of those... I am here! A blogger myself and the social media coordinator for the Rival. This blog was recently named by Spotted by Locals as one of the top 5 blogs about Stockholm. Click here for more information about our TBEX rate and to reserve your room.
