2. COORDINATION MEETING EARLY IN THE PLANNING PHASE

Skellefteå's event coordination meeting includes representatives from various departments within Skellefteå municipality, Visit Skellefteå, the rescue services and the police. The purpose is for organisers to meet with all parties early, in order to avoid something being forgotten or falling through the cracks in relation to a specific event.

The event coordination meeting happens every other Wednesday (on even weeks) and a case to be presented at the meeting must arrive no later than the Friday before the next meeting. The convener for the event coordination meeting is the event coach at Visit Skellefteå.
