Bella Center Copenhagen is nominated as ‘Best Overseas Conference Center’ in connection with the prestigious Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Industry Awards 2019.

Press Release January 30, 2019

For the second consecutive year, Bella Center has made it through the eye of the needle and been nominated in the 'Best Overseas Conference Centre' category.


Bella Center Copenhagen will be rubbing shoulders with the cream of the industry when the winners of the M&IT Awards 2019 are announced at a grand and ambitious show in London on March 1st.


The UK-based M&IT magazine is behind the awards, and the focus will once again be on Copenhagen and what the city can offer in terms of its congress and conference facilities. This year actually double up as Copenhagen CVB (Copenhagen Convention Bureau) is shortlisted in the category 'Best Overseas Convention Bureau'.


The customers nominated the candidates and the UK-based event organisers and M&IT magazine readers have voted, and selected the winners of 15 exciting categories, including the category for which Bella Center has been nominated: 'Best Overseas Conference Centre'.


There is another important dimension to the awards - in addition to paying tribute to industry colleagues, it is also about charity. During the evening, money is raised to support local projects around the world, for example the 'Just a Drop' drinking water project, the establishment of solar energy and the construction of school buildings in vulnerable areas.


There are six finalists in each of the categories, and more than 1,200 professionals from the UK and abroad will be attending the grand awards ceremony in London.
