Associations seem to have a soft spot for Copenhagen, as 2017 was a busy year for Bella Center Copenhagen. 2018 is expected to keep up the pace with an estimated 73.000 delegates from across the globe attending conferences and congresses at the venue.
The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) has decided to return to the city and Bella Center Copenhagen with their EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2018. Ricardo Vivas van Leeuwen, Business Liaison Officer at EAGE says: “The communities that we serve want to see us bringing the annual Conference and Exhibition to major industry cities and regions, and here Copenhagen delivers on several parameters: It is centrally located in Scandinavia, easily accessible from abroad and offers a high level of safety and political stability. On top, we receive great local support from our industry, and at the same time the city offers high quality suppliers for all event activities; conference & exhibition suppliers, social programs, etc.”
Ranking 4th in total number of participants according to ICCA’s most recent Statistics Report, the city has a number of conferences lined up for next year. The 33rd Annual EAU (European Association of Urology) Congress, 16-20 March with an expected 15,000 delegates from over 100, the ESA 2018 (European Anaesthesiology Congress), 2-4 June expected to attract some 6,000 delegates from across the world, the EAGE Annual 2018, 11-14 with more than 6,000 people from almost 100 different countries, the ITS World Congress, 17-21 September with an estimated 10,000 delegates and the BIO-Europe 2018, 5-7 November with 4,000 delegates.
