Visit Denmark invited event planners to London's IceTank venue last night (1 May) to meet a selection of Copenahgen-based suppliers. Meetovation's Bo Kruger entertained guests with a series of interactive activities to help communicate Denmark's C&I packages, while Danish chef Soren Selin and his team were on hand to demonstrate the best of the region's culinary offering.

Last night (1 May) the Church House Conference Centre in Westminster hosted its annual dinner, with more than 170 agencies and corporates in attendance.
