DENMARK SOCKS - Learn the art of Danish Hygge at our Happy Hygge Hour!

Host: Business Events Denmark
Location: Stand B500
Date: Wednesday 14 June
Time: 16:00

Hard to explain and even harder to pronounce, the Danish word “Hygge” translates roughly to “cosiness”. Hygge is pronounced “hooga” but that hasn’t stopped people from finding out that Hygge might be a recipe for a happier and richer life.

Last year Oxford Dictionaries shortlisted Hygge as one of their Words of the year. And you can buy dozens of different books about the cozy Danish phenomena. But what is it? Are candles Hygge? Woolly socks? Is Copenhagen Hyggelig – or what about any other cities or a venue?

Together with all our partners at TMS17, Business Events Denmark invite you to get closer to the Danes and get a real taste of our famous Hygge. Who knows, maybe you will learn why we at TMS dare to say, Denmark Socks! @BizEventsDK DanesatTMS
