Bella Center (abbreviated BC ) is Scandinavia's largest exhibition and conference center, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. Bella Center takes its name from Bellahøj in northern Copenhagen where the convention centre was first situated.
Its first building was constructed in 1965 to the design of architect Erik Møller. In 1973-75, Bella Center was moved to its current location on Amager between the city centre and Copenhagen airport, while the original building was converted into a sports center under the name Grøndals Centret. At this stage, Bella Center's new premises were located in an undeveloped area outside the city on the former Amager Commons.
With the development of Ørestad, as decided in 1992 with construction start from around the turn of the millennium, Bella Center's surroundings are in the process of changing into a dense urban area. When the line of the Copenhagen Metro opened in 2004, it was with a station named for the Bella Center located next to it.
