The expansion includes the 743m2 Antilles Ballroom and its four breakout rooms, 120m2 Bahamas Room and 120m2 Coral Room. The new meeting space accommodates nearly any budget for groups of seven to 700, in addition to the current space that will accommodate groups up to 1,200.
The new convention space is located on the ground level with a panoramic view of the tropical outdoor pool. Adjacent to both Starbucks and the Mystère Theatre, the expansion connects to the existing convention space via escalators.
Danish capital to host world’s largest architectural congress
Come 2023, some 10,000 of the world’s leading architects will travel to Copenhagen to attend World Congress of Architects. The five-day event will be held at Bella Center Copenhagen.
Discussions will focus on challenges that stem from urbanisation, as well as the increasing scarcity of resources and climate change, and how architecture can contribute to the achievement of the UN’s sustainable development goal.
Organised by the International Union of Architects, the congress is held every three years and is the biggest of its kind in the field of architecture. This will be the first time that it has been hosted by a Nordic country.
