In 2013, Copenhagen takes the prize as being the most liveable city in the world – at least if you ask the prestigious lifestyle Magazine, Monocle. Safety, tolerability, green initiatives and international connections are the main advantages of the city.

Scales were compared with the actual results of the ICCA. 18 cities (72 %) of 25 in the ICCA rankings TOP 50 corresponds to the scale of the magazine Monocle.

Through research you can see what are the key physical and subjective indicators of successful development of convention destinations. This is a very interesting and informative reading for all planners and handlebars of congress tourism.

Monocle published its first “Most Livable Cities Index” in 2007 and this is the second time that Copenhagen has been in first place. The last occasion was in 2008 and, since then, the Danish capital has been in second place two times and last year it came third, with Helsinki and Zurich ahead in first and second places.
