"Frequently hailed as one of the world's most liveable cities, Copenhagen is praised for its culture, global connectivity, transport system and green spaces. By 2027, Denmark is expected to attract more than 14 million international arrivals, making it one of Europe's fastest growing travel destinations," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton. "With an existing portfolio of six trading hotels across the Nordics and a further two in the pipeline, we're pleased to be working with BCHG, Denmark's leading hotel and exhibition space operator to introduce three new hotels."
