Check out the hashtag #meetincph on Twitter and Instagram to learn more about our latest press group trip which took place in Copenhagen on 17-19th September. During the trip, reporters from Conference & Meetings World, BBT Online, GMI Portal, Quality Travel, MICEclub as well as the Danish financial newspaper Børsen shared their experiences of Copenhagen as the Capital of Sustainable meetings on social media.
The trip included selected, sustainable meetings and event venues in Copenhagen: a virtual lunch made from local produce at one of the world’s most sustainable hotels, the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers****, externally certified with ISO 14001, the Green Key and the Danish Social Responsibility standard, DS 49001, and more on how bees make honey for the breakfast served at Bella Sky Hotel**** as the wind turbine turns in the background providing electricity for Scandinavia’s largest convention centre, the Bella Center.
For those not afraid of heights, we climbed to the top of one of the city's many wind turbines from where there are splendid views of the city, 50 meters off ground!
Also on the agenda was the brand new interactive visitor and exhibition centre for green solutions, House of Green
, the first of its kind in Denmark, experiencing the city ‘the Copenhagen way’; on a bike, and touring the city in Danish-designed luxury electric cart
s, that can whisk you quickly and efficiently about town.
