Einride is bringing together key stakeholders and decision-makers to help push for innovation and put forth solutions to society’s pressing issues during Almedalen Week, Sweden’s top political event that takes place in Visby from July 3-7. There, we’ll join the country’s most prominent leaders in the public, private and non-profit sectors for a series of high-level panels, meetings, and seminars. 

In the beautiful Einride Garden on Blockgränd 6, Einride will host daily breakfast sessions where everyone can start the day listening to industry leaders, government officials and scholars dive into cutting-edge solutions to societal challenges. 

Each meal will be carefully hand-picked by chefs Sebastian Gibrand and Robert Sjöberg, who will create sustainably smart breakfast choices for our guests. Girbrand and Sjöberg are some of the world’s best chefs in sustainable cooking.

The rest of the program will be at Einride Hub on Hästgatan 5 in central Visby, where the team will be available for a chat, networking and some ice cream. The schedule will feature our Remote Pod Operator open session, where participants will be able to witness our Pod in action. It was just five years ago that Einride first unveiled its stylish autonomous model at Almedalen.

Almedalen is the world’s largest democratic meeting place for everyone that wants to talk about our future. The program gathers politicians across parties, business leaders, and civil society to discuss current issues that range from mobility to circular economy and how we can build a more inclusive society.

Come join us at Almedalen!
