The Nordic Way of Sustainability


In October 2020 our annual fall congress will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the history of Euhofa International it is the 2nd time that Copenhagen Hospitality College invites the Euhofa family to experience Danish hospitality paired with a high standard academic program.

The 59th Euhofa International Congress will be held with the theme of ’The Nordic Way of Sustainability’.

Congress President Anne-Birgitte Agger together with the congress organizing team has put together a high standard congress programme including relevant academic input as well as discussion and workshop sessions, enough time to share personal experience and get to know a lot about Danish hospitality.

Would you like to know more about ’Sustainability as a driver for tourism in Denmark and Copenhagen’, ’City Tourism’ and learn through didactic tours – these are some of the topics which will be discussed and experienced during the academic sessions.

The cultural programme will give you the opportunity to investigate all the touristic hotspots of Copenhagen as well as to get to know the students as well as staff of Copenhagen Hospitality College.

Attending the congress will also give you the opportunity to meet your international colleagues and friends and to strengthen your network.

You cannot miss this nordic experience – you have to sign up! Reserve the date, join us and see you in Copenhagen in 2020!

Lluis Serra
President
Euhofa International

We look forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen – a city at the forefront of sustainable development with ambitious goals to become CO2 neutral in 2025, with 90% organic produce in public meals and numerous other initiatives, green bike lanes, clean water in the harbor, the new metro enabling access to all areas of the city and new sustainable hotels in the city.

Copenhagen has become not only a tourist attraction because of its fairytale castles, Tivoli, museums and other sights, but to a large extent because of the gastronomy. The New Nordic cuisine has revolutionized the restaurant scene. Top chefs and great restaurants on all levels, world-class brewers, great coffee, street food, and natural wine.

Many of the young women and men working in the hospitality industry are not just talented and bright, but also take their industry seriously and want to make an impact not just on their guests and their colleagues – but also on the environment and planet. This means we need to educate them while the industry has to embrace them and their commitment.

I look forward to showing you Copenhagen and discussing these topics with you
