IVBM2018 3.-7.6.2018

Over a thousand vascular biologists came to sunny Helsinki to attend the International Vascular Biology Meeting (IVBM2018) in June 3-7, 2018. The IVBM2018 brought together investigators from all fields of vascular biology for the exchange of new ideas and discussions of burning issues at Finlandia Hall.  Presentations of the latest concepts and discoveries were provided by internationally recognized scientists and young stars of the future from all around the globe. The program consisted of plenary sessions, parallel symposia with nearly 90 invited speakers together with poster sessions, located adjacent to the symposium exhibition.
The IVBM2018 created an outstanding showcase of top-of-the level vascular biology research, and an opportunity to experience the Scandinavian culture, nature and cuisine. The meeting was  held in Finlandia Hall, a masterpiece of Finnish architecture, located right in the center of Helsinki,  buzzing with light and life.  The conference participants could enjoy the Nordic white nights when the sun set only for a moment bringing out the magic in the city and its people. The period was also the best time for tasting of local and Nordic cuisine’s seasonal ingredients fresh from the nature.

ESGCT and FSGT Congress 17.-20.9.2015

"Having organised many congresses in many different venues and countries all over the world, we have experienced first-hand that the venue itself is only part of the overall success story:
the venue staff and their attitude to managing events is much more crucial in ensuring a successful congress. Of course Finlandia Hall is beautiful, and with its great logistics, wonderful location and stunning natural light is a near-perfect place for any event. What made it stand out for us is the professionalism and kindness of everyone working there, their good humour and positive attitude, their accessiblility and general desire to do a great job whatever the circumstances.
We have met many wonderful people along the way, but Finlandia Hall's family has stood out for us. Thank you!"

ESERA 2015 conference dinner

"The ESERA 2015 conference gala dinner was held at Finlandia Hall on 3 September 2015. There were a total of 580 guests at the dinner, so we selected Piazza as the venue. We prepared for the dinner by planning the practicalities and the catering services together with the personnel of Finlandia Hall. The cooperation was smooth and professional throughout the process, and we felt we were well looked after. All contact persons were easy to contact, and everyone replied to their e-mails without delay and made sure nothing fell behind schedule.There was a table service at the gala dinner. The service was professional, and the guests felt the quality of the food was high. They gave good feedback on the way special diets were taken into account, and pointed out that the food was delicious, compared to the quality of food at similar conference dinners across Europe. All in all, we can say that the venue is impressive and well suited for dinners. The personnel at Finlandia Hall are exceptionally professional and skilled. They did an excellent job with the dinner preparations and practical arrangements."

WHO Global Health Conference at Finlandia Hall 10.-14.6.2013

“Plans were improved and changed right up to the start of and even during the conference. Finlandia Hall’s professional employees were very understanding and cooperative in fulfilling our every request. Cooperation was straightforward and relaxed, professional but caring, and calm in the midst of the storm.

Finlandia Hall’s premises are spacious and timeless – the best possible environment for international guests. The location in the heart of the city, close to a wide variety of accommodation and business life allows participants to enjoy the vibrant city life in addition to the conference programme. A revolutionary Eco Compass environmental programme that was created for the conference enabled more controlled management of environmental impacts.
It has been a joy to work with true professionals and to provide feedback also from our participants, who told us that Finlandia Hall was the best thing about the conference, in addition to the programme.”

The International Association for Dental Research at Finlandia Hall in September 2012

The International Association for Dental Research was very pleased to host our European regional meeting of over 1,000 delegates at Finlandia Hall in September 2012.

"All advance communication with the facility was timely and effortless, and the venue's web site made conference pre-planning easy. On site, the customer service was outstanding, especially in assisting with the coordination of multiple vendors for the conference. Special kudos to the Service Point desk which made it so much easier on our registration staff to have a central area for questions and answers for attendees and vendors alike. I highly recommend this facility as providing 5-star service right in the heart of Helsinki!"

Centennial celebrations of the K-Retailers’ Association

K-kauppiasliitto 100-vuottaThe centennial celebrations of the K-Retailers’ Association were held at Finlandia Hall on 24 March 2012 and were attended by around 1,500 guests. The Association held its annual meeting in the morning, followed by a centennial seminar. In the evening, a gala programme gave guests the opportunity to learn more about the Association’s history and enjoy a delicious dinner and some music.

Planning and preparing for the event took nearly two years in all. The impressive backdrop provided by Finlandia Hall and the success of the catering for the gala dinner for 1,500 proved a hit with guests and ensured that the Association celebrated its 100th anniversary in style.

The event was a great success and we would warmly recommend Finlandia Hall as a venue.


Pro 2012AROMI is the magazine for food and beverage professionals in Finland and recognises the best in the industry through its annual PRO awards.

The tenth anniversary PRO Gala was held in Finlandia Hall in January 2012. This was the first gala to be held here and attracted more than 600 guests, who enjoyed a sumptuous, five-course gourmet dinner. Finlandia Hall provided the perfect surroundings and the chefs succeeded in creating some beautiful dishes.

All the other arrangements also went off very well, down to the last detail and just as planned, and ensured that guests were able to enjoy every minute. The success of the event resulted in Finlandia Hall being booked for the following PRO Gala, in January 2013, as well.

“Finlandia Hall has been one of our partners for a long time and we’ve been very satisfied with working with them. The central location makes it easy to get to and the space on offer is very flexible. Together with the building’s professional, service-minded staff, this has helped ensure that everyone attending an Atea Focus is able to get the most out of the event. Alvar Aalto’s wonderful design gives a special, unique touch to everything.”

LOGY has become a regular customer

“Our events have always gone off very successfully and our customers have been very satisfied. Finlandia Hall is a great place for seminars like these. Being the landmark venue it is, everyone knows where to find it as well. The building has an excellent reputation, not only in Finland, but also internationally as well. The space itself, the catering, and the service have always been just right for us.”
