Updated: Sep 23
Register now for Imaging in Copenhagen 2024, and check out all the amazing things to do in Denmark! We made a top ten list of some our favorite activities in and around the Danish Capital.
1. Global Radiologists - We know your primary reason for joining us is our outstanding faculty, scientific program, and the opportunity to meet radiologists from around the globe! At the helm of our distinguished award winning faculty is our Scientific Director, Dr. Neil Rofsky, recently awarded the 2023 SABI Gold Medal. Pictured above is the ACR Gold Medalist, Dr. Donald Resnick presenting the coveted Global Radiology CME annual Resnick MSK Quiz Award to Dr. Nancy Prendergast.
2. Embrace Hygge - Denmark really is the friendliest and happiest country I have ever visited! Michelle Exarhos, Chief Concierge in charge of Responsible Business, Spirit and Culture at the Radisson Collection Royal, taught me first hand the meaning of hygge and she looks forward to welcoming all Global Radiology CME registrants to Copenhagen with the same warmth!
3. Architecture - Copenhagen was named the UNESCO WORLD CAPITAL OF ARCHITECTURE in 2023! It only made sense when selecting a conference venue for Imaging in Copenhagen, The Radisson Collection Royal, the first design hotel, created by renowned Danish designer and architect, Arne Jacobsen was the ideal choice! The floating staircase pictured above leads to the Imaging in Copenhagen 2024 conference room!
4. Tivoli Gardens - Across the street from the Radisson Collection Royal we found the perfect place to host the Welcome to Copenhagen 2024 dinner. The historic Groften Restaurant, serving traditional Danish delicacies has been welcoming guests since 1874 and is located in the beautiful Tivoli Gardens! Emil Rud Nielson, pictured above, Manager of Groften Restaurant, looks forward to welcoming you this June! The dinner at Groften and entrance into Tivoli Gardens are included in your registration.
5. Nyhavn - Beautiful canals meander throughout this gorgeous city but the old port of Nyhavn lined with brightly colored 17th and early 18th century townhouses with lively restaurants, and bars is the quintessential place to meet up with colleagues and enjoy a drink or meal while watching the ships sailing in and out of the harbor.
6. Bicycles - Upon arrival to the Danish Capital we quickly realized there are more bicycles than people in Copenhagen! There are actually 5 times as many bikes as cars on the road. You can rent a bike at the Radisson Collection Royal Hotel. Be sure to save time to experience the city like a local.
7. Vikings - I love Vikings and one of the highlights of my site visit was a visit to the Viking Ship Museum and learning to sail a replica Viking ship. Yes, that is me at the helm! You too can sign up and become part of the crew for an afternoon sail in Roskilde Fjord!
8. Castles and Shakespeare - The Danish monarchy is one of the oldest in the world and there are a plethora of castles to explore in Denmark. My favorite was Kronborg Castle, pictured above. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet. The Castle is located in the quaint town of Helsingor, only a 60 minute drive from Copenhagen. Global Radiology registrants will also have an opportunity to eat like Royalty at the gala dinner in the beautiful Odd Fellow Palace, included in your registration.
9. Signature Social Events - When you are outside the conference room its time to have some fun and get to know the faculty and your fellow registrants in an informal setting. Global Radiology is renowned for our unique and engaging social and networking opportunities! We have gone punting in Oxford, on a musical pub crawl in Dublin, camel riding and Israel, and look forward to many more shared experiences in Copenhagen!
10. A Gastronomic Journey - Copenhagen is currently home to 15 Michelin star restaurants, and the world famous Torvehallerne Food stalls. No wonder it is a culinary destination! Torvehallerne and many of the Michelin star restaurants are only a short walk from the conference hotel.
