ONS+ area, free and open to everyone - all three nights

A popular networking arena in the evenings for locals and visitors to ONS. This is the place where you can unwind after a long day at the exhibition, meet old friends, and get new ones. 

Every night during ONS, Stavanger Harbour will be transformed into a small urban village. Pavilions placed alongside the harbour offer food, drinks, music, as well as being the hosts for our new concept: debates, discussions and presentation around the theme energy in society.
You may choose to listen to debates while having a meal, or you can simply have a drink with friends.
