Copenhagen has busy MICE months ahead

Meetings about the global meetings industry lined up
Copenhagen is preparing to host a string of prestigious meetings and conferences in early 2016, which it hopes will show off its large-scale MICE expertise, according to VisitCopenhagen. And many of the events are about the meetings industry itself.
Among the most influential events in January is the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) Training Academy’s IAPCO EDGE, an advanced education forum for PCOs, convention bureaus and venues.
IAPCO members organised 7075 meetings worldwide in 2014, totalling over 2.86 million delegates. This latest forum, taking place on January 19-21, looks at the challenges and opportunities of today’s rapidly changing meetings landscape.
Another January event in Copenhagen is the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association and Conference Forum, which is expected to bring a group of powerful decision-makers from international meeting associations to Copenhagen.
Then, in February, the international meetings industry will gather in Copenhagen when Meeting Professional International (MPI) stages the European Meetings & Events Conference. The event unfolds at the Radisson Scandinavia Hotel and will be executed according to the Danish meeting design principle Meetovation, which focuses on how to ensure a high return on meeting investment.
Copenhagen is ranked one of the most popular congress cities in the world, according to the International Congress and Convention Association, and is easy and safe to reach and navigate within. VisitCopenhagen describes the Danish capital as a knowledge hub where some of its strong points are within the life science and clean tech industries, and the city invests heavily in the development of these particular fields.
