Reykjavik to host 2020 European Film Awards

European Film Academy announced that Reykjavik, Iceland is awarded to host the 2020 European Film Awards in December 2020. It’s not too early or too late to plan and book your future visit during that time.

Some 1400 people icluding European talent and producers, alike Iceland’s most known director, Baltasar Kormákur, and journalists are expected to infuse their presence in and around the Capital city for the awards ceremony.

The ceremony will take place at the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. It will be an exciting time and a grand addition to all the events that Harpa has produced over the years. Designed by Olafur Eliasson, Henning Larsen Architects and Batteríið Architects, Harpa Concert Hall is an ideally artful and statuesque venue situated by the Atlantic Ocean and graced by the juxtaposition of mountains and city life.

Reykjavík competed against two other European cities for the event and Meet in Reykjavík led the bidding process alongside stakeholders from both the public and private sectors in Iceland. Excited to win the prestigious honor of hosting the event, Thorsteinn Orn Gudmundsson, the Managing Director of Meet in Reykjavík, commented, “We can add this to a long list of Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre success stories. This unique architectural gem is the main reason why we can compete for events like the EFA awards“.
