In 2020, a leading Nordic trade fair invites European businesses to see for themselves how to hold genuinely creative and sustainable meetings in one of the world’s most peaceful and innovative countries in the field of participatory meetings and conferences: Denmark.

Scandinavia and the other Nordic countries are famous for getting participants involved early on in the process of planning meetings, and this means that all facilities, activities and events have the skills and know-how needed to fulfil specific requirements for meetings or conferences.

A safe city for participants

European executives responsible for planning meetings can learn about the latest trends in meetings and conferences at the Nordic Meeting & Events Expo, which will take place on March 25th and 26th 2020 in Forum Copenhagen. The trade fair will showcase exhibitors from all over Scandinavia and the other Nordic countries, amongst other Sweden, The Faroe Isles, Iceland and Northern Germany. The trade fair is the largest in the Nordic countries with more than 300 exhibitors representing venues, event planners, caterers and much more.

Many important trade fairs and conferences are held in Denmark because participants feel very safe in Danish cities, and on top of this, the infrastructure is almost flawless. For example, the Copenhagen airport is just 10 minutes from the city centre. Besides this, venues in Denmark and the other Nordic countries are exemplary when it comes to keeping meetings sustainable.

Scandinavian castles – and modern conference centres

At the Nordic Meeting & Events Expo, guests can meet exhibitors from large conference centres, historic castles and several hundred other kinds of big, small, different and creative venues. The exhibitors are mainly from Denmark and the other Nordic countries. On both days of the trade fair, there will be talks in English on current topics by Scandinavian and international speakers.

” The overall theme of the exhibition is sustainability. And this is an area we are experts in here in Denmark. Hotels and venues have been working on sustainability for a really long time, and now the time is ripe to use this awareness when we plan meetings and conferences,” says the project manager of the trade fair, Christina Kjær Nielsen. “We feel we can really make a difference if every guest takes home two or three things that they can implement in their daily lives.”

Top of the international lists

Copenhagen has often topped the global lists of the best cities for tourism and meetings. The city is renowned for its atmospheric city centre, good infrastructure and high culinary standards – as well as for the city’s focus on sustainability. Denmark can almost be called a first mover in green meetings, hotels and catering. Denmark also has vocational training for ”meetovators” who act as liaisons between venues and businesses. Many of the meetovators will take part in the trade fair. All exhibitors speak English.
