When deciding on a location for a conference, there are many factors to take into account. A lot is decided by the number of visitors and where they come from.
A small, local conference can be housed almost anywhere, within reasonable traveling distance and there are usually lots of good locations, in all price ranges, available nearby.
For big international conferences it quickly gets trickier and your choice is more limited. To begin with there is a limited number of hotels and conference centres capable of hosting really big conferences and, in addition to this, they tend to be booked far in advance, making planning trickier.
Another factor to take into account is how easy it will be for the participants to travel into the conference city and to get around with the least amount of trouble.
If you want a location with a green profile the selection gets even smaller, but there are some great choices, especially in northern Europe.
Take Copenhagen, for example. It’s a great European city with a rich history, nice architecture, and well-known for its many environmentally-aware inhabitants, traveling to work by bicycle.
There’s a great selection of Copenhagen venues available in all sizes and price ranges, often located within a stone’s throw from the city centre.
It’s also a city that is easily accessible from the rest of the world. Whether traveling by plane, train or car you always have easy access to the capital of Denmark and, according to some, the capital of Scandinavia.
