Extend your stay and experience world class badminton

The week after WHINN is concluded, Odense will host the world-renown badminton tournament Danisa Denmark Open.

If you extend your stay in Odense, you will be able to experience some of the world’s leading badminton players compete for glory and in addition you will have more time for company visits and sightseeing.

Odense is known to be a frontrunner within health technology and innovation. Additional time in the city will grant you the opportunity to further explore the new technologies and sustainable solutionsthat Odense has to offer. Furthermore, an extended stay will give you more time to meet some of the participants you meet at WHINN.

In order for you to visit relevant health and innovation companies and secure networking opportunities with the companies’ decision makers, Sport Event Fyn can assist in customising your schedule. Moreover, we can help you get tickets for Danisa Denmark Open.

To get the most out of your stay and experience the best Odense and Funen has to offer, we can also assist with sightseeing planning during the weekend. For example, sightseeing could include a city walk in the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen, a tour of his birthplace and a trip to Egeskov Castle.
