Denmark is expected to welcome a record number of tourists this year
The Danish Chamber of Commerce is of the opinion that at the current rate, hotels in the country will tackle the influx by providing enough beds to accommodate 10 million tourists by 2021, which is almost twice Denmark’s population. There’ll be about 8,000 more rooms over the next four years, raising supply at a rate of around 11 percent per year. The Copenhagen tourism board, Wonderful Copenhagen, is forecasting an annual growth rate in visitors of 3.9 percent by 2021. The expected increase in demand may fall short of supply. But Lars Ramme Nielsen, head of tourism at the Danish Chamber of Commerce, said that giving customers more choice is well worth the risk, given that a standard room in an average hotel today can cost more than $250 per night.
