Wonderful Copenhagen is the official Convention Bureau of the Greater Copenhagen area. Copenhagen is the capital and largest city of Denmark with a population of 1.2 million, but there are almost 2 million people in the Greater Copenhagen region. The city hosts several large conventions, conferences, meetings and corporate events every year, attracting delegates and MICE clients from all over the world and, unsurprisingly, Copenhagen has been in the top 10-list of ICCA’s ranking of the world’s most popular convention cities for years.
Copenhagen is known for its happy people, laid back lifestyle and the concept of ‘hygge’ – the best way to translate this is into ‘coziness’. The capital city is very compact, and it is easy to get around when you are here – you can basically experience most of Copenhagen by foot or blend in with the locals by renting a bike, which is also the quickest way to get around town.
Copenhagen offers 140+ hotels with more than 20,000 guest rooms and within the next year another 7,500 guest rooms will be added. There are around 40 exclusive event venues, and more than 2,000 restaurants. The capital has three large convention centers and many conference hotels for smaller conferences or meetings.
• Only 13 minutes metro travel time from airport to city center
• The Copenhagen harbor is so clean that you can swim in it
• On target to become the world’s first CO2 neutral capital by 2025
