On Friday 9th November 2018, IACC confirmed 63 new venues in Denmark to its membership.
The new venues are part of Danske KonferenceCentre, a national sales and marketing consortium of more than 100 conference venues in Denmark. All of its gold and silver tier member venues – 63 in total – will become IACC certified venues from 1st January 2019, making it the largest country collection of members outside of the US.
Mark Cooper, CEO, IACC said: “Building our Scandinavian membership has been a real focus for us and I’m excited for what the future hold for IACC in the region as we continue towards our goal of representing the top 1% of meeting venues globally.”
IACC’s European Chapter President Lotta Boman added: “Conferences, meetings and training events are engrained in the culture of the Danish and as a result, there are excellent venues available. We are excited to bring the Danish perspective into our communities and into our research and trends”.
The membership will provide the 63 new venues and their teams with important access to our trends, research, global learning as well as events, conferences and being a part of IACC’s continued program of educating meeting planners globally.
Marlene Horsbøl Sylvester–Hvid, CEO, Danske KonferenceCentre commented: “This new relationship is exciting because of the differing strengths of our two organisations coming together to serve the Danish members to the fullest”.
Flemming Jakobsen, Chairman, Danske KonferenceCentre highlighted that while Danske Konferencecentre has a strong brand presence nationally, IACC’s well known profile internationally was an important factor in the board’s support of the alliance.
