“In order to attract the largest international congresses, Copenhagen has historically lacked two things: hotel capacity and a large column-free Arena, where the main speaker could speak to 7,000 participants at the same time. The hotels have been added over the last few years, and now we are adding the Arena which, together with the rest of Bella Center, raises the bar for which events we can draw to the capital ", said CEO of BC Hospitality Group, Christian Folden Lund.
The new Bella Arena is connected to the existing Bella Center via a large glass atrium, so that the Arena, the hotel, and Bella Center are now under one roof and can accommodate events with up to 30,000 participants. Bella Arena also gets its own identities and entrances, so that it can be used for cultural events and sporting events at the same time as there are other conference events in Bella Center.
"We have focused on creating a flexible solution that expands what the entire Bella complex with congress center, hotel and arena can be used for, so that we are 100 percent ready, when the world reopens," added CEO of BC Hospitality Group, Christian Folden Lund.
