Copenhagen Broke Records for Booked Events in 2014

Denmark's capital is a university city and has a long tradition as a knowledge hub with a strong reputation within clean-tech, life-tech, human rights and IT, to mention a few key fields, all of which are important for those who arrange association congresses. The city’s strengths were mirrored in some of the bid wins for 2014.
