It was announced today that the chairman of the Danish capital’s tourism board Wonderful Copenhagen has resigned, following emerging details of the cost of Eurovision 2014.
Michael Metz Mørch, head of the Danish Cultural Institute, stepped down from the role following earlier reports of the spiralling cost of Eurovision 2014 for the city of Copenhagen. We previously reported that the contest was thrice as expensive as planned, with the tourism board having to cover the rest of the bill.
The board will hold an emergency meeting on Monday to decide what steps need to be taken next, but it seems that unlike in 2013, the contest has had a negative effect on the city of Copenhagen.
