Our ruggedly beautiful conference venue, Paasitorni Conference and Congress Centre, is located on the eastern bank of Eläintarhanlahti bay, near Hakaniemi Square. The congress centre has excellent transport connections, and plenty of services and dining opportunities are nearby. Many of the hotels in the heart of the city are just a short walk away. Venue address: Paasivuorenkatu 5 A, 00530 Helsinki
