Copenhagen earns €31 million from Worlds

The World Championships, which were held in Copenhagen last September, generated around €31.2 million of income for the city, it has been announced - around €26 for every resident of the Danish city.

75% of that is believed to have come from overseas, either from tourists visiting the event as part of a holiday to the Scandinavian nation or there specifically for the event. Approximately 118,000 hotel rooms were booked for the weekend throughout Denmark and tourists reported many campsites were so packed full of motorhomes, caravans and tents that they were forced to turn people away.
