Welcome to Denmark, the most enchanting incentive destination in the world. Denmark is a small country and although the kingdom is often considered to be part of Scandinavia, it is also a very continental country in many ways. The streets are lined with Cafés, and it's capital city, Copenhagen, has a distinctly sunny disposition, having more jazz clubs than any other European capital.

Food is something the Danes quite rightly consider to be a national treasure.Danish cuisine is both refined and elegant. At it's best it matches anything produced elsewhere. The famous open sandwich, smorrebrod, to enjoy and a great variety unique dishes to discover. Copenhagen offers a choice of more than 200 restaurants, cafés, bars and snack bars. Denmark has a temperate climate, in August the daytime temperature is 20deg C. and in the coldest months of winter, the thermometer rarely drops below 2.2deg C. This means that Copenhagen's weather is very similar to that of London or Amsterdam.

Denmark's strong environmental stance means their air is remarkably fresh, with lush forests covering more of the land than they did in the 18th century. Morning rush hour takes on a whole new meaning in Denmark, its the rush of bicycles, not the blare of horns which signals the beginning of a new day. Bicycle lanes run alongside nearly every street in Denmark and a generally flat terrain is ideal for cycling.

Denmark is certain to exceed your expectations as an incentive destination and the danes have been successfully promoting their country to the meetings and incentives markets for some time. In March 1995 Copenhagen hosted the World Summit on Social Development which attracted thousands of delegates from all over the world and according the 'Union Of International Associations' Denmark ranks as the tenth most popular congress destination in the world. Copenhagen provides a perfect setting for conference delegates and incentive groups, as everything is affordable, there are no great distances to travel and there are countless opportunities for excursions and special events. You will also find a 'small town' friendliness, rare in a capital city, which you will be able to get to know with ease as the majority of Danes speak English.
