Almedalen Week started in 1968 when Olof Palme (Social Democratic Party) spoke from the back of a lorry at Kruttornet by Almedalen in Visby on Gotland. In 2008, Almedalen Week celebrated its 40th anniversary. In 2014, 3,513 activities were held, 866 journalists were accredited and over 30,000 participants were at the events during the week. Everyone wants to disseminate information, debate issues important to their organizations, make contacts, form networks and generate media attention. This creates a challenging climate of competition but also great opportunities to hold rewarding meetings and make contacts
