Also in attendance at ‘Welcome Reception Spring’ will be the city’s deputy mayor for culture and leisure, Carl Christian Ebbesen, who will deliver a speech to officially welcome everyone in attendance in Copenhagen.

Lots of organisations and choice
A great number of companies, organisations and venues will be in attendance to let you know about what they have to offer.

And fun too
Come prepared to ask representatives questions about the city’s culture and leisure facilities – for example, how to make full use of libraries.
