Byens Netværk is a Danish membership association for everyone professionally involved in construction and urban development.
The network has approximately 350 members (companies and organizations) including among other architects, engineers, contractors, developers, suppliers, real estate and development companies, lawyers, etc. See the list of members.
As a member, your company becomes part of a professional, business-oriented, and social network allowing you to participate in a wide range of networking activities and events focusing on city development and the construction industry.
The aim is to strengthen an interdisciplinary dialogue and form relations that are essential for inspiration, exchange of knowledge, and mutual understanding across professions and companies within the building industry.
Byens Netværk is solely financed by membership fees. A membership applies to all employees in the member company.
Byens Netværk has activities in both Copenhagen and Aarhus. We hold 40-50 events annually, including:
- Site visits (to new or transformed architecture, buildings, urban areas, construction sites, etc.).
- Debates and conferences
- Networking activities
- Study trips
- Social events
A list of upcoming events can be found in the Calendar.
Byens Netværk was established in Copenhagen in 1995 with the participation of private and public developers, the financial sector, engineering and architectural firms, contractors, and craft institutions and was initially run on a voluntary basis. Today we are run as a professional secretariat led by CEO Henriette Sofie Larsen and four employees. The organization also includes a board of directors and an event committee.
