23 October 2020:
Due to the ongoing pandemic Covid-19, the World Tunnel Congress in Copenhagen has been rescheduled from May 2021 to April 2022. Further information will be posted in due time.
It is a great pleasure on behalf of the Danish Society for Tunnels and Underground Works, DFTU, to invite you to the World Tunnel Congress 2022 and associated events from Friday 22 April 2022 through to Thursday 28 April 2022.
Copenhagen is an attractive conference location with easy access, great logistics and excellent venues. The city has for many years been one of the world’s most popular congress cities according to the International Congress and Conference Association (ICCA).
The venue we have chosen to host the conference, exhibition and ITA general assembly is the well-known Bella Congress Center Copenhagen. Being located less than 15 minutes from the airport and less than 10 minutes from the city center, the Bella Center has a fantastic location and the venue has more than sufficient capacity both in terms of conference and exhibitions capacity to host the World Tunnel Congress.
Denmark and Scandinavia will present some of the mega projects in the world with great opportunity to learn and visit the project in our part of the world. In Denmark, existing and new projects are well under construction and site visits will be arranged. New Metro lines (Cityringen, Nordhavn and Sydhavn) are well under way. Learnings from the Great Belt Link and the Øresund Link has been used for getting the Femern Fixed Link started. In Scandinavia: Norway, Sweden and Finland the construction of many other new mega infrastructure projects will start. The E39 crossings in Norway will be well underway and lessons learned from all the projects will be shared at the conference.
We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in April 2022!
