Copenhagen is again to be found in the global Top-10 city list. The fact that 2015 was also a successful year for the Danish capital, has just been cemented with the release of the International Congress & Convention Association’s list of the world’s most popular destinations for international conventions published yesterday (May 19), where Copenhagen advances to spot number 10.
This is based on 138 international congresses counting – among others – ‘EWEA OFFSHORE 2015’ with 8,000 delegates, ‘Eurospine 2015 – Spine Society of Europe’, attracting 3,000 people, ‘The European Climate Change Adaptation Conference – ECCA 2015’ with 1,000+ participants and the ‘European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases – ECCMID2015’ with more than 10,000 delegates.
But not only Copenhagen is doing well. Denmark climbs 3 places from last year and is now back in ICCA’s top-20 list, at number 19 with 204 meetings in 2015.
Berlin occupied the top slot followed by Paris and Barcelona.
Copenhagen is consistently among the top performers on international rankings such as World’s Most Liveable City, cementing its reputation as a clean and safe destination.
2016 will be the busiest convention year Copenhagen ever seen, welcoming more than 100,000 delegates to congresses such as Women Deliver, Sustainable Brands, the neurology congress EAN, hematology congress EHA, neuroscience conference FENS, oncology congress ESMO and many more.
