Record-breaking number of powerful decision-makers headed towards Copenhagen

Bella Center exterior
BTomorrow, decision-makers working with the world's largest medical and clean-tech congresses arrive in Copenhagen. A total of 86 executives - a record high number – will gather at the AC Forum, the Annual Meeting of the Association and Conference Forum.

The AC Forum takes place on January 21-23 in Copenhagen, and the 86 delegates are representatives from medical and clean-tech associations that hold congresses with in excess of 3.000 delegates and have their own in-house congress staff.   

Daniel Waigl, AC Forum President, comments on why Copenhagen was chosen as the host city: “Copenhagen is known as a world-class congress destination, providing good infrastructure and the required logistical services for both small and large events. It is a safe and attractive city, home to strong life science and clean tech industries, both being of specific interest to our member associations. Many of us have already successfully staged a congress in Copenhagen or plan to do so in the years to come.”

Some of the important congresses that members of AC Forum have already held or are about to hold in Copenhagen include the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) Offshore 2015, the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2016 Congress, and the Congress of European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) 2016.  

Aside from the professional programme unfolded at Bella Sky Hotel, the delegates will also be introduced to what Copenhagen has to offer as a congress destination, including a guided Canal Tour of Copenhagen, a food tour and Nordic cuisine tasting at the city’s Market halls and visits to the former brewery Carlsberg Byen, and a tour of Scandinavia’s largest convention center, the Bella Center.

The delegates will also attend a gala dinner at Copenhagen City Hall, where Mayor of Culture & Leisure, Carl Christian Ebbesen, will welcome them, and where they will be joined by a number of prominent local guests.  

Wonderful Copenhagen looks forward to hosting the delegates, and Convention Director, Jonas Wilstrup, comments: “AC Forum is a key event that gives Copenhagen a unique opportunity to showcase what we have to offer as a congress destination, both practically and strategically. 2016 will be our busiest congress year ever, and AC Forum is a platform that enables us to leverage Copenhagen as a congress destination in the years to come.”   

The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association and Conference Forum was secured to Copenhagen by a collective effort from Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau and BC Hospitality Group.
