DIS Congress Service has been selected as PCO for the World Tunnel Congress - WTC 2021 in Copenhagen

Efforts have been made since 2012 to get the WTC Congress to Copenhagen, so it is important not to give up, if you do not win the Congress the first time.

In collaboration with the Danish Tunnelling Society and Wonderful Copenhagen we made the first bid for the 2015 Congress – which we lost, unfortunately, for political reasons to Croatia, since they were a new member of the international association. The next time the Congress had the opportunity to come to Europe was in 2017. This time Norway wanted to make a bid and therefore the Danish society chose not to bid, as a gentlemen’s agreement. Norway won – so the next possibility was 2021. A good bid was put together and Copenhagen was up against London, who withdrew before the final vote during the Dubai Congress at the end of April 2018.

Approximately 1.500 delegates are expected to come to the Bella Center together with more than 100 exhibitors.

There are important reasons why Copenhagen wins more large congresses:

• Good logistics – easy to get to and around in Copenhagen
• Good knowledge environments – both in companies and universities
• Good conference venues
• A professional Convention bureau
• Good IAPCO PCOs
