Pacific World, the leading global DMC and Event Management company, www.pacificworld.com has announced a further expansion of its operations in Northern Europe with the opening of new offices in Copenhagen, Denmark and Amsterdam in Holland.
Announcing the development from booth 2030 at IMEX America, Selina Chavry, Global Managing Director for Pacific World said, “Strengthening our reach in these very different destinations will bring lots more exciting event options for our clients. Our new incentive products designed around emotions and motivations for experiential events tick many of the boxes for both destinations that are known for their progressive cultures of creativity, sustainability and the use of innovative technology in events”.
Strategically placed within Europe, Denmark is the undisputed hub of Scandinavia while Amsterdam is the prime coastal location of the Netherlands with a gateway to the rest of Europe. There are strong parallels between the capital cities of both countries with established track records in hosting large-scale global conference and tradeshows. Sustainable and creative approaches to events, connecting international routes and high levels of accessibility have earned them countless industry accolades as top meeting destinations.
Copenhagen has been consistently rated as the best place to do business in Europe and it has the “happiest people in the world”. Only 15 minutes away from the Copenhagen Airport, the city centre is a compact web of hotels, venues and attractions. Famed for its modern architecture, meeting venues of all shapes and sizes, they are constantly being updated to stay at the forefront of global trends.
Bo Madsen, Country Manager of Pacific World Denmark said, “Taking advantage of the Copenhagen’s safety and ease of getting around, our experienced team can enhance any meeting with programmes that explore its rich history or revolutionary culinary scene. Long bike rides, evening canal tours or scavenger hunts at dusk are intriguing ways to engage delegates and explore what Copenhagen has to offer.”
One of Europe’s major commercial centres, Amsterdam has decades of experience hosting international events and is a major hub for businesses in technology, transport and communications. Its futuristic outlook and reputation for being free-spirited has attracted a cosmopolitan, creative pool of talent that is highly adaptive to the use of technology in events. Getting to meetings and attractions within the compact city is easy using the advanced tram, bus and metro system, or on bike for a local experience. A pioneer in hosting green meetings and incentives, engage delegates with CSR activities such as an eco-art workshop or a sustainable cooking class.
Kim Donkers, Country Manager of Pacific World Netherlands commented, “Our team’s expertise allows us to customise any event at unconventional venues from 17th century canal houses, unique museums to the former Stock Exchange. Well-equipped with the infrastructure for events of any size, it is remarkably efficient to organise meetings in Amsterdam. It is equally easy to hop on an Eco Solex for a countryside tour, pay a visit to local farmers or experience one of the many art and music performances around the city.”
