Good to know
- Denmark as a safe and secure destination
Denmark is one of the safest, most secure, and peaceful countries in the world with a strong healthcare system, hyperconnected infrastructure and a highly tech-savvy and English-speaking population.
It’s easy to host a sustainable event in Odense as many of the hotels in the city center hold an official eco-certification. The city’s convention venues are also certified, and everything is within walking distance so there is no need for public transportation or taxis within the city centre.
The city has a range of excellent hotels and conference venues where awareness of sustainability is increasingly on the agenda – contributing to rethinking the ways meetings are organized and hotels are operated. By focusing on the Nordic Cuisine, many restaurants contribute to boosting the production and consumption of traditional, local, and seasonal food products.
- VISA guidelines
Participants from EU and the EEA countries (and participants from third countries with a Schengen work and residence permit) can travel to Denmark without a visa. Non-EU/EEA residents are subject to the visa rules between Denmark and the specific country and their participants’ travel patterns within the Schengen area within the past 180 days. Participants from countries exempt from visas can participate with no further permits. Other participants will apply for a visa at their local embassy. The visa will normally be issued within a 15-20 day timeframe. We recommend beginning the process three months in advance. The likelihood of obtaining a visa is based on financial, educational and employment factors of the specific participant
