Venue

Dipoli Congress Centre - setting that compliments the occasion

Dipoli is one of the premier venues in Finland. It is in a prime location, sharing in the diverse services on offer in the capital Helsinki as well as the innovative atmosphere of the scientific community of Otaniemi in Espoo.

The greenest congress centre in Finland, Dipoli received the Green Office certificate four years ago - the rocks quarried at the site saved building materials already in the founding stage. Today, the environmental impact is diminished by reconditioning furniture, keeping a close watch of paper and electricity consumption, and ensuring meticulous waste management. Aalto Open is Dipoli’s new WLAN with free access for all Dipoli’s customers to the Internet services.
