The Capital Region of Denmark attracts attention at leading international real estate fair
02 April 2014
At the recently-held MIPIM real estate fair, the leading international real estate exhibition and conference, Financial Times-owned fDi Intelligence appointed Copenhagen the most interesting small European region for foreign companies to invest in. The ranking is based on the ‘European Cities and Regions of the Future’ report, which measures the attractiveness of European regions and cities for investment purposes.
For the 19th year, Copenhagen Capacity attended the annual MIPIM real estate fair, the world’s premier real estate fair held in the French town of Cannes, France. The Copenhagen Capacity stand enjoyed wide support from 10 partners, 40 sponsors and over 500 Danish visitors and for the second year in a row the stand was elected ‘Stand of the Year’ by the Swedish magazine ‘Fästighedsvärlden’.
At MIPIM, Copenhagen gained the prestigious honour of being voted the best small European region for foreign companies to invest in. In addition to this impressive first place, Copenhagen came third overall in terms of economic potential after Nordrhein-Westfalen and Scotland and third in the 'Foreign Direct investment Strategy’ category, which assesses regional efforts to attract investment.
-We work very hard to uncover the areas in which the Capital Region of Denmark is in a position of strength compared to other regions in the world. This particular strategy along with our work to highlight these strengths is what ensures our top position, says Claus Lønborg, Managing Director of Copenhagen Capacity.
