We know that planning the perfect event takes a lot of effort. And, among the many key elements that contribute to designing a truly memorable get together, the choice of destination is one of the most important. As the world’s traditional conference centers are being increasingly affected by strained capacity, event planners are now looking outside major cities for savings and variety. So, if you’re not sure where you should host your next corporate meeting or happening, see below for some unique and surprising event destinations that are sure to leave a lasting impression for your delegates.
Stylish Copenhagen has everything you need - and more - for unforgettable meetings, conferences and events. This stunning capital city combines modern design and ancient history with a strong focus on customer service, inspired by the Danes’ unique open-mindedness. And it’s also easily accessible - most major airline operators have regular flights to and from Copenhagen and the airport is just a 15 minute-drive from the city center.
Copenhagen also has a world leading record as a safe and environmentally friendly destination: according to the Global Peace Index 2016, Denmark is the second safest destination in the world. (This explains why it's also a great destination for families). It also has one of the world's most ambitious climate policies, aiming to ensure the country becomes completely independent of fossil fuels - making Copenhagen the perfect place for sustainable meetings.
It’s a city where you can really enjoy an authentic taste of Danish lifestyle and culture in a great choice of iconic venues. If you want to stay in heart of the city, the elegant Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Copenhagen offers modern meeting facilities for up to 1,700 guests.

Beautiful Nice has a glorious setting on the coast not far from Monaco and the Italian border, creating a unique ambience that blends the best of Southern France with a touch of savvy Italian sophistication.
