Book your exhibition space now

The exhibition area in the foyer of the Tivoli Congress Centre next to the congress hall and session rooms will also be the venue for buffet breakfasts, luncheons and coffee breaks. Exhibitors are therefore guaranteed an excellent exposure to the delegates throughout the conference. The group of exhibitors will include gas companies, technology organisations, manufacturers, etc. Exhibition space is limited, and potential exhibitors are encouraged to register their interest as soon as possible as space may quickly be sold out.

Enjoy Wonderful Copenhagen and our social programme with your accompanying person

Bring your accompanying person to Wonderful Copenhagen in late summer, enjoy the sights and meet Harlekin and Columbine at the Tivoli Congress Center. We have adopted Harlekin and Columbine as our cultural theme for IGRC2014 – which you may see reflected in the Harlekin graphics in this newsletter.
An exciting programme dedicated to accompanying persons has been created consisting of networking breakfasts, cultural sessions and sightseeing tours. Accompanying persons are also invited to the Welcome Reception in the Copenhagen Town Hall and the Conference Dinner at Langelinie Pavillonen close to
the Little Mermaid in the Copenhagen Habour.
