The place of supply for your conference is Sweden (see Events paragraph at

That's likely to mean that you need to be registered for VAT in Sweden and charge Swedish VAT to Swedish customers. Attendees for all other EU member states, including the UK, should then be zero-rated and reverse charge applies.

But, it depends on the precise facts - for example if you're also organising travel and accommodation for attendees, it might fall under TOMS for tour operators.

Very confused by your response. If we register for swedish VAT should we be charging it on all our invoices to all customers? (Like we would charge UK VAT on all our invoices if event is taking place in UK) The whole idea behind the reverse charge is that to avoid registering for vat in other EU country (where we are not based)
