About the venue

"The ruggedly beautiful granite fortress in Siltasaari, now the Paasitorni conference and congress centre, was designed by architect Karl Lindahl, and opened as the Helsinki Workers’ House, providing leisure activities, entertainment and education for the workers of Helsinki, in 1908. The building has been tastefully restored to its former glory, respecting its historic past yet meeting all the demands made of a modern conference centre."
