The Nordic MICE Summit has announced that the event will be rearranged, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The summit had been planned for 5-7 November 2020. Now the plan is to run it in March 2021.
The postponement follows a statement made by the Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederickson, on 29 May, regarding travel restrictions to the country. Restrictions on Norwegian nationals entering the country, in addition to those from Iceland and Germany, will be lifted from 15 June. However, there will still be restrictions on those from Sweden, as cases of Covid-19 are higher than in other Nordic countries.
Frederickson said: “Denmark and Sweden have a close relationship and that will continue in the future.” She added that whilst there was “a strong desire to find a solution with our neighbour, Sweden”, Denmark and Sweden “are in different places when it comes to the coronavirus, and this affects what we can decide on the border.”
The Nordic MICE Summit said in a statement: “After careful consideration, and in the light of the ongoing coronavirus developments and the latest announcement from the Danish Prime Minister and the Foreign Ministry on 29 May, The Nordic MICE Summit, that was scheduled to be held 5-7 November 2020 will be postponed to 4-6 March 2021.”
The proposed venue for the March 2021 Nordic MICE Summit will the Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport and Huone Kastrup.
