The lovely surroundings, the panoramic views of the harbour and the exquisite design of Arne Jacobsen’s furniture, lamps by Poul Henningsen and Verner Panton’s interiors make Langelinie Pavillonen the perfect venue for this conference dinner.

Harlekin and Columbine Pantomime
A Harlekin and Columbine Pantomime with dancers from the Danish Royal Ballet Corps will be part of the Opening Plenary Wednesday September 17 at 09.00 hrs.
Harlequin and Columbine have been adopted as the IGRC2014 cultural theme.
They originate from the Italian Commedia dell’arte performing tradition. In Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen Harlekin and Columbine are main characters at the unique Pantomime Theatre. We have persuaded them to join us in Tivoli Congress Center and help IGRC2014 off to a good start.
