Learn more about how MeetDenmark is working closely together with the Danish meeting destination to accelerate the sustainable transition in the meetings industry and beyond in the years to come.

Since 2015 Danish meeting destinations have worked closely together in the national development association for business events, MeetDenmark, to strengthen Denmark’s position as a preferred destination for congresses, meetings and events through knowledge sharing, and joint development projects. 

Sustainability has always been high on MeetDenmark’s agenda, which is reflected in The Global Destination Sustainability Index 2023: MeetDenmark’s seven partner cities - Copenhagen, Aalborg, Aarhus, Middelfart, Odense, Nyborg and Svendborg - are all to be found in the top-30.

To accelerate the sustainable transition even further, MeetDenmark has compiled an ambitious plan built on a comprehensive analysis of the Danish meetings industry. The plan contains three focus areas with 11 initiatives counting, among others, certifications, Net Zero Carbon, Outreach & Legacy, Regenerative business models, International Benchmarking, Communications & Marketing. 

The plan will be implemented in the period 2022-2024. 

We call it sustainable together
