Hotel reservation cancellations spark failure fears for the upcoming climate conference in Copenhagen.
The Foreign Ministry has cancelled 20,000 overnight hotel reservations meant for people attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December.
The move is expected to cost the hotel industry about 40 million kroner in lost revenue, calculated by each night in a hotel room costing about 2,000 kroner, reports Business.dk.
Reservations in a number of hotels across Zealand and parts of Skåne in southern Sweden have been cut from 120,000 to 100,000 overnight stays.
The two-week conference in December is expected to attract between 12,000 and 15,000 participants. The ministry described the cancellations as a natural ‘adjustment’.
Natural adjustment, my ass.
