Record Demand for Copenhagen as a Congress City

The number of congresses which Wonderful Copenhagen CVB has won for the Danish capital to date exceeds the previous record result from the same period last year.

So far this year, Wonderful Copenhagen CVB - in close co-operation with, among others, VisitDenmark and the business tourism network, Meetingplace Wonderful Copenhagen - has won 24 international congresses which, together, will bring 31,480 participants and 107,560 room nights to Copenhagen in the coming years. By the same stage in 2011 the city had won 21 congresses. Wonderful Copenhagen's congress director, Steen Jakobsen, said:

”It is probably too early to predict the future, but if the positive trend which we have experienced to date continues for the rest of 2012, we will beat the 2011 record, when a total of 50 congresses were entered into Wonderful Copenhagen's order books."

Among the 24 congresses which have committed to Copenhagen are:

  • 16th International Inner Wheel Convention 2,500 delegates, May 2015
  • European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery 1,500 delegates, May 2014
  • International Symposium on Supportive Care in Cancer 1,000 delegates, June 2015
