Reykjavik Will be the Host City for European Film Awards 2020

News It looks like it will be virtually impossible to book a hotel in Reykjavik at the end of 2020. It was announced that the capital of Iceland will be hosting the European Film Awards next year. Even though the notable event organized by European Film Academy will happen only in December 2020, it is not too early to start planning a visit to the land of fire and ice and search for a suitable Reykjavik hotel. Moreover, the city’s hospitality industry may not have enough rooms for everyone.

During the awards ceremony, the capital of Iceland will be definitely a hot place. Approximately 1400 actors, directors, producers, filmmakers, and journalists are expected to visit Reykjavik. Of course, Baltasar Kormákur, the most famous director from Iceland, will be present at the festival. The awards will surely attract numerous guests who will come to see celebrities and enjoy the atmosphere. Needless to say, this is a great opportunity to visit Iceland and admire its rough beauty.

The venue for the awards ceremony has been already revealed. The 2020 European Film Awards will take place at the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. Harpa is a popular choice when it comes to organizing large events in Iceland. The right to host an award ceremony of European level will be certainly a great addition to the record of events at Harpa. The concert hall was designed by a group of architects, namely, Olafur Eliasson, Batteríið Architects, and Henning Larsen Architects. This is an artistic and eye-catching building that enjoys a scenic location with magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains.

Reykjavik had to compete with two other European cities for the right to host the popular film award. To win, Meet in Reykjavik prepared a special campaign to unleash the beauty of the country and show that it is a perfect choice for the honorable event. As representatives of Meet in Reykjavik underline, the attractiveness of Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre was one of the reasons for success.

The European Film Awards is the annual ceremony organized by the European Film Academy. Since 1988, the aim of this event has been to recognize the achievements of European filmmakers. Currently, the award ceremony covers more than ten categories, with the Best Film being the most important one.
