Getting to Copenhagen and where to stay

Traveling to Denmark
There are direct flights to Copenhagen from most major US cities. SAS (Star Alliance), Finnair (One World) and Norwegian are the best airlines in the region and offer a great opportunity to travel in the region before or after Convention.

If you are traveling within Scandinavia then Finnair, SAS and Norwegian all have direct flights to Copenhagen from Helsinki, Stockholm and Oslo. 


Hotels and other accommodation
Copenhagen has a wide selection of Hotels and Hostels in all price categories. In addition you'll find a great selection of vacation rentals on AirBnB.

Pre-Convention
Get the most out of Convention week by participating in pre-convention for younger Vikings under the age of 30.
We're working hard on finalising plans for Pre-Convention!

What we can tell you for now is that Pre-convention will be the 19th to the 21st of August and that we're capping the price at 200$. That will include activities and entertainment, food and drinks from Monday to Wednesday and transportation to and from Copenhagen. Prepare to be in Copenhagen by the evening of the 18th to participate.

You'll need active wear, clothes to match the weather forecast, a sleeping bag and a towel. We'll provide everything else.

We'll have an easier time planning pre-convention the sooner you let us know if you'll be coming. Please sign up using this form and save your confirmation email. We're limiting pre-convention plus ones to significant others due to capacity restrictions.
We're making important decisions that will shape the future of the BVO! Help us make a better Scholarship model and organization by answering some questions. It'll only take 10 minutes of your time.

We'll be talking about important things at this year's business meeting in Copenhagen.

As you may be aware, there has been an ongoing discussion around the Scholarship rotation for the past few years now. How we send Viking Scholars on exchange impact our alumni organization in many ways. It affects the rate at which we grow and how well we can sustain the BVO. To secure future scholarship opportunities, some changes could be considered.

Based on the results of the organization wide climate survey from a few years back, the international board has been exploring options for improving the current scholarship model over the course of several years.

At convention in Stockholm, it was decided that a new rotation will be voted on in Copenhagen at the annual business meeting this August. The board was given a mandate to form an independent committee, to lead a discussion around how a new rotation model might look.

The International board has already drafted a proposal for a future rotation, that along with the committee proposal and the current rotation model, will be up for a vote in Copenhagen.
We will be giving all Vikings the opportunity to vote by proxy so that you can have your voice heard without traveling to Copenhagen. 

A report will be sent out a few months before Convention, presenting a general overview of the BVO finances along with the different proposals and how to implement them.

To make sure we get proper input from the, we ask that you please help the committee draft their rotation model by completing this survey first chance you get.
