Congresses: All-time high demand for Copenhagen
The latest statistics on bid wins shows that organizers are convinced; a record number of 57 international conventions and 211 corporate events were secured in 2012. The year turned out to be a record-breaking year in terms of secured meetings and events - 57 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. Another 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. The number of corporate meetings secured in 2012 was also record breaking; 211 companies decided to hold their next event in Copenhagen - in 2011, this number was 182.
