56 international conventions. 2012 has turned out to be a record-breaking year in terms of secured meetings and events – 56 international conventions have been confirmed for Copenhagen in the years to come. Already, 2011 was a record-breaking year for Copenhagen with 50 bid wins in total, and so there is no doubt that 2012 is ending on an all-time high.
”The increasing popularity of Copenhagen is partly due to the fact the city’s growing hotel and conference capacity in recent years, and partly because this city has all the necessary ’hardware’ needed; easy accessibility, great infrastructure, state-of-the-art venues and hotel facilities, etc. One of Copenhagen’s strong points is also its high level of scientific knowledge and research, which is key when trying to attract international scientific conventions. 2012 promises to be a great record-year for the city,” says Steen Jakobsen, Convention Director at Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau. Also the number of corporate meetings secured in 2012is record breaking. So far 211 companies have decided to hold their next event in Copenhagen. In 2011, this number was 182.
