Background of Copenhagen
The suitable destination which I have chosen for the conference is Copenhagen. Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and was voted one of the richest cities in Europe in 2012. Since the city got this title, it has attracted a lot of business and conference visitors. Copenhagen has had to raise its standards so it can compete with other destinations and has done so drastically, through this hard work Copenhagen is now the conference destination of Europe.
The population of Copenhagen is 1,967,727. The city’s geographical location is situated on the eastern coast of Zealand and 42km North West to Sweden. The layout of the city stretches across parts of the island Amager.
The location of Copenhagen is shown in the diagram, listed as figure 1, in the appendices section.
