Konventum Konference Center
If you like art, you’ll like Konventum! A modern conference centre. But the house also tells an exciting story about Danish design, art, and architecture as tools that can add value to meetings and conferences.
Gammel Hellebækvej 70
It all started with an architectural contest – Jørn Utzon won but was waylaid by the plans for an Oresund bridge and the opera house in Sydney. Karen and Ebbe Clemmensen, and Jarl Heger, who had won second prize, ended up with the assignment. They created a modern village featuring elements of both medieval history and Southern Europe.
The village is built up around three oak trees that symbolise the Nordic “thingstead”, where the wise men met, discussed and decided issues in a communal setting. The buildings exude life and atmosphere – and also happen to contain Denmark’s most extensive private collection of art.
If one were to boil down the setting and layout of Konventum to one word, it would have to be generous. No expense was spared – not on rooms, furnishings, space or provisioning. Konventum is the right place if you are looking for a conference place with both large and small offices, niches and outdoor areas. You can transmit live between auditoriums, there’s a library, and there are guest rooms of a high standard – and, of course, a lot of art.
The demands for holding meetings and conferences in a unique setting are only getting greater and greater. Today, a conference booker’s responsibilities extend far beyond the booking of rooms and refreshments. Because the value of your conference must continue past the moment you say, “Thanks for everything” and leave the conference centre.

And "Hollywood" booked us
When the actor Jude Law played Hamlet at Kronborg, all the journalists and photographers were desperate to find him. Who would get a shot off, or a word with, the man that many women – and some men – consider irresistible? But even though he was often glimpsed moving through Elsinore, nobody ever found Jude Law’s hideout.
Good for him, for that allowed him to enjoy life and spend a week going on bicycle rides with his kids in peace. But this much we can now say: If you want to live like Jude Law, check into room 715 at Konventum.

Certification for Konventum, achieving international gold status in sustainability!
The international association IACC has awarded Konventum with gold status in their Green Star certification for complying with 85% of their sustainability guidelines.
"We are proud to receive the certification and even achieve gold status. It shows that our efforts to create a more sustainable experience resonate with our Danish customers and are recognised internationally," says conference manager Gitte Winberg.
For her, it is clear that sustainability is an important topic, especially for international companies. "We are increasingly seeing a need from our international customers to be able to make a sustainable choice. A certificate like Green Star helps us to clarify the high standard we maintain when it comes to running sustainable conferences."
IACC regularly updates their Code of Sustainability to ensure its Green Star certification always refers to the latest best practices in sustainable conference operations. The latest update was carried out this year, and it is on this basis that Konventum has achieved gold status.
