Christmas came early this year – to be precise, on the 1st of December! On the first day of MIND event, Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau and Visit Denmark surprised us big time with a Christmas themed dinner at Tivoli Congress Centre. All was beautifully set for a traditional Christmas celebration and the evening was full of surprises.
When travelling to a new destination, I enjoy learning about the host country and this one was a very memorable experience, very authentic and personal, almost as visiting the Danes at their homes.
In the following I am happy to share with you some of the highlights from our Christmas dinner – we had all – great food, present exchange, games, and as they say in Denmark – Happy Ending.
Beautiful Christmas set-up in Tivoli Congress Centre
Welcome drinks and canapés
Christmas songs by local school children. They were so adorable!
Lightly smokes salmon, highly protein yoghurt, horseradish – beet root
Bo Krüger, our host for the dinner and the rest of MIND and Meetovation events
Handing over Christmas presents to the Rotary Charity and fullfilling Christmas wishes of children
Slowly cooked duck breast, crispy red cabbage salad, syrup boiled hazelnuts, white potatoes – caramelized potatoes – duck sauce
Funny and interactive Christmas game and present exchange. The aim is to throw the dice cube and the ones who get numbers 1 or 6 can pick a present, also from other thables
Rice à la mande – cherry sauce (Danish Rice Pudding)
Tradition says that there should be one whole almond in the pudding and the one who finds it gets a present
As they say in Denmark – all events need a Happy Ending. So we also had a spectacular finish, with konfetti falling down in surprise and we are all smiles and happy after the first day in Copenhagen 🙂
Thank you Visit Copenhagen, Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau and all the partners for the memorable experience and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
