Dear Group Leader,
We are very glad that you have chosen to bring your group to our center. Below you will find important information that will help you to prepare your group for their stay at our center. There are two documents that we ask you to carefully read through. The first document has information on what is expected of you as the group leader, and the second document contains general information for the group concerning things at our center. Normally you’ll be informed of these things by the staff upon arrival but you can download it and read through it so that you are well informed prior to your arrival and can prepare any additional questions for us. That will make the check in faster and less time for you spent going through logistical issues.
We believe that you will have a great time at our center. Please remember that if there is anything you desire differently than what’s normal procedure at our center, please feel free to express your desires, and we will try our very best to handle your requests. We might not be able to accommodate all requests but please feel comfortable in asking us. Our desire is for you and your group to have as great a stay as possible.
Christer Dahlberg and the ICC staff
Mgr. David Šourek, Director of ČCE
We visited the Conference centre Immanuel for the first time and we are willing to come back again. Nice atmosphere, good food, good drinks and friendly staff. In addition, the beautiful landscape of the Highlands. We have for a long time searched for a suitable space “in the center of the country” for holding a regular nationwide board meeting of the Diaconate of ČCE, a large non-profit Christian organization. It seems that we have found it.

We chose Immanuel Conference Centre for a training camp in the fall of 2010 because of the tables of some friends who had stayed at the centre earlier. (They especially loved the food :-)). We made the right decision, because the co-operation with the centre and the stay itself were pleasant, the service was perfect and the singing practices were without problems. The singers especially enjoyed the buffet style food – everyone takes as much as they want. The centre has a beautiful surrounding – a lake, forest, fields. We recommend it!
Laura Dickinson, Educational Services International
Immanuel Conference Center has been an ideal place for our annual conference gatherings. We always feel so warmly received and taken care of when we stay here. The atmosphere is calm and clean and our participants feel refreshed and renewed throughout their stay. The staff is more than willing to help with our individual needs and requests. I would recommend this Conference Center to anyone!
