EU Open House Success!

EU Open House Success!

On May 10 the EU Open House and Eurovision Song Contest Live Broadcast Party was hosted at the Embassy of Denmark.

This year we had the pleasure of welcoming a record number of visitors to our embassy (more than 4,800 people for EU Open House and approximately 450 for the Eurovision Song Contest Live Broadcast Party); an impressive record in light of the occasional heavy rain.BycicleSpace

Whether they were busy learning about American-Danish Business Council partners, Copenhagen’s green goals and experiences, riding bikes and powering their own smoothie-bike-blender, or tasting cheese during the residence tour, we are sure all our visitors left the grounds feeling cheerful.

Also the American-Danish Business Council companies that had chosen to be represented at this unique event where very satisfied. “EU day provides us a fantastic venue to engage with the public, show them how biotechnology is changing our world and spotlight our proud Danish heritage.  The Embassy is a great partner to Novozymes—they take care of the details and all we have to do is show up”, said Paige Donnell from Novozymes.
