Copenhagen will welcome around 10,000 professors and PhD students in 2025, as the city has been chosen as the first destination outside North America to host Academy of Management’s (AOM) annual meeting.

The Academy of Management has held its annual meeting in North America since 1936, but in 2025 the Danish capital will host the conference, which will focus on research and education within the fields of management and organisations.

"We are really excited and proud to have been selected from a strong field of international destinations," said Kit Lykketoft, director of conventions at Wonderful Copenhagen.

"Copenhagen is a popular congress city and a hub for knowledge and science. Therefore, hosting the Academy of Management has been a priority, as we believe the conference will bring valuable knowledge to the city."

The AOM’s executive director, Nancy Urbanowicz, added: "We have been very impressed with Copenhagen from the beginning. The facilities and infrastructure are very convenient and it is a perfect metropolis, which offers everything within a short radius."

The AOM community consist of nearly 20,000 scholars or academics from more than 120 countries. The organisation aspires to better the world through scholarships and teaching about management and organisations.
