The conference venue is Helsinki Congress Paasitorni, Paasivuorenkatu 5 A, Meeting room Sirkus on 0. floor.

Travelling to the conference venue
Helsinki is served by the Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport (HEL), which has many connections throughout Europe and particularly Asia.

The Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport is served by taxis, buses and a local train to downtown Helsinki. (

Helsinki Congress Paasitorni is located  in the Siltasaari district, near the Hakaniemi Market Square. The Hakaniemi Market Square offers excellent connections (metro, tram and bus) to the city centre. The venue is only 1.3 km from the Helsinki main railway station (route).​

The delegates must secure their own accommodation, independent of the registration process.

Hotel Scandic Paasi is under the same roof as the Helsinki Congress Paasitorni. Some rooms have been blocked out for the HOTLAB meeting for a limited time, after which availability cannot be guaranteed (code BVTT160918).

For the participants of HOTLAB 2018, a certain number of rooms at some local hotels have been blocked out during the 16 – 21 September 2018 period.  The hotels are all situated within an easy walking distance of the venue, Helsinki Congress Paasitorni.

However, downtown Helsinki is quite compact, and there are many other hotels to choose from as well, so no other reservations have been made.
