Medinfo 2013 will take place at the Bella Center. The Bella Center congress venue is an outstanding, completely refurbished complex with spacious halls and contemporary Danish design. It is located at Center Boulevard 5, 2300 Copenhagen S.
The Bella Center is situated in a newly developed part of Copenhagen, Ørestad. Ørestad is down town Scandinavia - less than 10 minutes away from historic Copenhagen. Scandinavia´s main airport and the Fixed Link to Sweden are equally close by. Ørestad is the geographic centre of the Øresund Region and a gateway to Copenhagen because of its exceptional traffic connections.
Being a fairly new quarter, there is not the same shopping and café life as in the old Bro-quarters of central Copenhagen, even if you will find some nice restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk, and a large shopping center as well.
The main entrance / West in the venue is also the easiest entrance to access the Medinfo Congress. An overview over entrances and the Bella Sky Hotel can be found here.
You can find useful information on a number of practical services under General Information.
Bella Sky Hotel (opened March 2011)
The 4-star Bella Hotel is integrated with Bella Center and with 814 rooms it is Europes largest. Comprising two 76.5m towers the stunning building will maintain a strong Scandinavian design ethic.
The hotel adds no less than 32 new meeting rooms to the 63 flexible meeting facilities already available. These include a spacious ballroom and two executive meeting rooms on the 23rd floor adjacent to the hotel's Skybar.
