Copenhagen CVB and BestCities have conducted an in-depth piece of future research in a unique collaboration with future scientists and designers. Explore four immersive scenarios for 2040 that spell out potential futures for our industry.

Explore the four scenarios
Associations, destinations - the global meeting industry as a whole - face new challenges. Future megatrends leave us with a lot of questions and a dire need to direct ourselves to become futureready, starting today. We are proud to present four future scenarios to all of you in the form of a future magazine, audio narratives, and online tools.

Listen to the future
These audio narratives are short stories that will make each of the four scenarios become real and relatable. You can listen to the stories whenever you like – in a learning context, at conferences, in strategy meetings or as inspiration in your own efforts to develop future solutions.

Shape the future
We invite everyone to explore the future. We have designed three future tools that will guide you in a reflection session, an explorative exercise and a final evaluation of the four scenarios.
