Association and Conference Forum to Meet in Copenhagen Next Year

The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association and Conference Forum is expected to draw a small but influential group of decision-makers from international meeting associations to Copenhagen.

Around 70 members of associations that primarily stage medical and clean tech industry conferences with 3,000 delegates or more will gather in the Danish capital in January.

“Copenhagen [has] good infrastructure and the required logistical services for both small and large events," AC Forum President Daniel Waigl said in a statement. "It is a safe and attractive city, home to strong life science and clean tech industries, both being of specific interest to our member associations. Many of us have already successfully staged a congress in Copenhagen or plan to do so in the years to come.”

Members of AC Forum have already scheduled several large-scale conferences for Copenhagen, including the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) Offshore 2015, the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2016 Congress, and the Congress of European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) 2016.

The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association and Conference Forum was won by a collective effort from Wonderful Copenhagen and BC Hospitality Group.

Copenhagen's Appeal

Copenhagen is a knowledge hub focusing on the life science and clean tech industries, and the city invests heavily in development of these particular fields. The area just north of Copenhagen is nicknamed ‘Medicon Valley’ due to an abundance of medical businesses, and a new healthtech lab has just been launched.    

Copenhagen has made sustainable meetings management a key priority, focusing on meetings design, recently embodied by the Danish Meetovation Concept which focuses on sustainability, involvement with the design of the room, local inspiration and return on meeting investment.
